Are We There Yet?

Nobody likes waiting.

It’s boring. And frustrating.  You’re  hot and sweaty and your shoes are pinching. All the other queues are moving faster.   I thought this was meant to be fast food – and where’s my instant coffee?

God however, doesn’t agree.  In fact, He seems to think that waiting is a Very Good idea.

‘Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage’;

(and just in case we haven’t yet got it)..

‘Yes, wait for the Lord’. Psalm 27:14.


That’s easy to say.  The question is, what are we waiting for?

– a change in the weather?

– a job?

– test results?

– a husband?


Are we waiting in vain: for someone or something who will never come?

–  Or are we waiting expectantly and with  hope – for a prize we have been promised?


And as we wait, what are we doing?

– panicking – or resting?

– trusting – or despairing?

– relying on our own strength – or looking to His?


My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken (Ps. 62:1-2)
