It’s In the Waiting

He is in the waiting, no matter where you are in your life and the time of waiting may be just what you need to fulfill your purpose.

Music speaks to me in many ways. I can tell how I am feeling by the song running through my head most of the time. This song, Take Courage, has been going through my head for over a week. “He’s in the waiting” has been cycling through my head starting first thing when I get up until I go to sleep.

Age of Immediacy

In this day and age, we expect to get what we want almost immediately. We take diet pills and expect to lose 50 pounds in a month. People order food and expect it to be at their homes in 30 minutes or less. We hate standing in line and we hate having to wait for someone to assist us. It is true that waiting is not something we are used to doing, nor something we like.

He’s In the Ebb and Flow

I have been working from home for almost a year (Saturday the 11th is one year!). It has been a year of ups and downs in all the different areas we live life. From physically to mentally to spiritually to socially, my life has seen much change. Ebb and flow. Friends I thought would always be my friend have faded into the background. A job I thought couldn’t be done by anyone by me has been done beautifully over the last year. Learning more about myself has been hard and joyful at the same time.

God is In the Waiting

Truth is found in the waiting. I keep wishing I had taken control of my life and made changes sooner, but my husband reminded me, “Would you have been ready?” The answer to that question is a resounding, “no.” I am a different person than I was 10 or even 5 years ago. It just took my kids growing up for me to find the true path to joy and to peace for me.

In the Waiting I Found Myself

It was in the waiting I found my peace. My courage. My passion. He was always there – waiting with me. God knew the call of my heart for it had been placed there by Him, but He also knew I wasn’t ready to fulfill my purpose. The waiting is a training ground of sorts. In the waiting is where your passion grows and builds until it just oozes out of every pore.

If you are waiting my friend, let me cheer you with this. God is with you and He is molding you into the woman He wants you to be. Lean into the Master’s hands and let him create the masterpiece He knows you can be. He’s in waiting.

Slow down, take time
Breathe in He said
He’d reveal what’s to come
The thoughts in His mind
Always higher than mine
He’ll reveal all to come

Sing praise my soul
Find strength in joy
Let His Words lead you on
Do not forget His great faithfulness
He’ll finish all He’s begun

Take courage my heart
Stay steadfast my soul
He’s in the waiting
He’s in the waiting
Hold onto your hope
As your triumph unfolds
He’s never failing
He’s never failing

And You who hold the stars
Who call them each by name
Will surely keep, Your promise to me
That I will rise, in Your victory
And You who hold the stars
Who call them each by name
Will surely keep, Your promise to me
That I will rise, in Your victory!
