waiting

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now.  For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6

Today i am waiting… anticipating… i’m excited… things have moved forward and now we wait for the next step. it’s hard to wait, but it grows my character, my patience, matures me. it’s a good thing that i wait for, but…

Today, as i wait, i think of those who are waiting for difficult things, for hard news, for answers to prayers. those are the hard ones, those are the most intense things in life. do you wait for answers? for sickness, for a child’s well-being, for news about cancer, for adoption, a parent’s health, education, employment, family struggles, peace, finances?

Give ear to my words, oh Lord, consider my sighing.
Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God,
for to You i pray.
In the morning, oh Lord, You hear my requests before You
and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:1-3
But let all who take refuge in You be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread Your protection over them,
that those who love Your name
may rejoice in You.
For surely, oh Lord, You bless the righteous;
You surround them with your favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:11-12

Today i prayed for you to have those answers, to find that job, to be blessed beyond your wildest imagination. today i prayed for peace to surround you in the hard answers, the no’s, the waiting. i pray for your heart to be renewed, your faith to grow strong, your love to grow deep, your joy to abound. i pray that you will be filled to overflowing in your weakness, that you would grow while you wait, that you will find strength in the hard answers. i pray for guidance and truth to surround you throughout your day and help you wait expectantly for your answer…

Today i prayed for you…
