I AM Waiting!!!!

Inspired by my morning

How we wait,  and wait for many things in life, we wait for friends, birthdays and the bathroom. We wait in line at the store, we wait for many people and things. Many Americans are impaitient and will not wait too long.

As Christians we wait too! We wait for things to change, we wait for a sign, we wait for the savior and at the holidays we wait for Christmas to get here!

Many times we forget that with waiting comes disappointment and discontent, we are not so much waiting as we might be expecting. Expecting that things will change because we prayed for the change, rather than waiting for the Lord to guide us to the change needed in our lives.

In this very troubling economic time where so many "good", even "great" and faithful servants of the Lord are loosing their jobs and can not find even a simple income, it becomes all to clear that waiting and expecting will blend together for many.

We as a society of Christians need to refocus and get back to waiting for the Lord to guide us on the path to His Heavenly Kingdom, rather than expecting Him to drawn the path in the dirt before us!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
