Every one of us has had to do it.
There is waiting in anticipation and nerves.
There is waiting alone.
There is watching someone you love wait.
There is waiting of all kinds.
Most waiting is hard.
Especially in our realm of time. When you see the clock and the calendar keep advancing.
Really what hasn't been said or written about waiting.
It's not fun, it takes time and we don't really care for it.
I wonder if there is time in the wait. Time to see more.
To experience more of that which our Creator intended for us.
If we would allow the time in the wait to interrupt our anticipation of the end point of our wait.
To be reminded we are surrounded by the One who knows the perfect plan for us.
To be reassured that every detail is within the divine realm of time.
To find joy in the wait.
Is it possible?
To find the good within the hard?
Does it exist?
Longing for an answer is attached to the waiting process.
For what do we long for?
Assurance that everything will be okay?
A comfortable joy filled life?
What if that was going on now and yet our hearts and heads were distracted by the wait?
Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:25-27 The Message
May be we hold tight to the hand of the One who is with us while we wait.
