are you waiting?

"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!" Isaiah 30:18

For the first time ever, i am wishing my summer away.
I am...

waiting for one to return.
waiting for another to become financially secure.
waiting for a career turn for one.
waiting for a change in a relationship.
waiting for an answer.


Waiting for what i want... it does not come easily.  And why should we wait?

This world tells us we can and should have what we want... GO! DO! GET! NOW!!  But this world lies, deceives, steals, misleads and instills an insatiable hunger for more --  more of what doesn't truly satisfy. 

Father, there are lessons in waiting and blessings.  Help me turn a deaf ear to the circus chants, and instead trust the stillness in waiting for You.  

Only His grace, love and mercy satisfies our soul completely. 

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
