I can be patient when it comes to helping the elderly or disabled.
I can be patient when the microwave only has one minute to go until my frozen dinner is ready. And once in awhile I can muster up patience in the drive-thru line buying coffee, or at a stop light, if I’m not running late. But when it comes to the big life stuff that can take, well, a lifetime, I’m not so patient.
Many of us are living in a “waiting room” right now–not literally, but metaphorically. We got to the “office” in time. We’ve “signed in” and now we’re waiting for the new job, the break-through, the spouse of our dreams . . . we are ready!
But life isn’t.
As I began praying for this week’s topic, the word “wait” kept coming to my mind. I argued, my friends. Most of us do not want to wait nor read scriptures about it, but I think you’ll find these verses encouraging rather than frustrating.[bctt tweet=”Have you discovered yet that God’s wait is always countered by a good promise?” username=”wordsbyandylee”]
I hope every morning you can pour some coffee or steep your favorite tea, light a candle, grab your journal and pen, and write down each word. After you do, wait. Wait to hear what the Lord wants to say to you, and when you sense His speaking, write it down. I’ve got a feeling some of you will receive direction, hope, and peace during your time in the #BiteofBread this week.
