Patience in the Waiting

Good morning, Happy Preparation day! God loves you. I love you. Take a moment to give someone a hug today. Let’s sing, There's not a mountain too tall. There's not a problem too small, That Jesus can't resolve. In time He'll get involved. Our God He cares about us. So wait on the Lord, Wait on the Lord, And He'll renew your strength. Today’s verse is from Lamentations 3:25-26. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. What would you be like as a person if you got every gift you asked for, every relationship you hoped for, and a "yes" to every opportunity you pursued? There's a reason God often answers "no" when we ask Him for things. Not getting what we want teaches us patience and humility. Wanting something and then having to wait for it can be frustrating, but God makes that time fruitful as He refines our desires in the waiting. Like a tree with deep roots, time spent waiting is not wasted for those who belong to God. Taking a weekly Sabbath rest might not seem"productive" in light of all the important things God has called us to do, but we can trust that He's at work in those days of quiet, too. The Lord is good to those who wait with and for Him. God loves you. Have a blessed day.
