Waiting is a Verb

A wise friend told me the truth yesterday.

She said I might have to just wait.

Then she told me that “waiting” is a verb.

I asked God to show me what He means by waiting.  Actually, I asked Google to show me what God says about waiting.  Google and God gave me this.

colossians

 

I cried.

Yes! Yes! That’s what I want.  I want to stop gritting my teeth and experience the glory-strength of God.

I want my life…all of it…even the waiting…to spill over into joy. I want to experience everything bright and beautiful that God has for me.

Lord, help us to go easy in the waiting…remind us that waiting is “doing something” if we surrender it to you…remind me that surrender is not giving up.

My yoga teacher said the other day, “When you surrender, you join the winning team”.

Yes Lord. Victory is mine. Maybe not right this minute but it’s coming.

Thank you.

    Thank you as always Sue. Waiting and surrending are so hard.

    I read this yesterday: “trust is like a staff you can lean on, as you journey uphill with Me. If you are trusting in Me, the staff will bear as much of your weight as needed. Lean on, trust, and be confident in Me with all your heart and mind.” From psalm 52:8; proverbs 3:5-6
