October 7, Today’s thought – Waiting?

oct6 008I’m thankful for my new mouse.

Good Morning

Psalms 138:6-8 Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

We don’t like to wait.
We’re the giddy-up generation.
We frown at the person who takes eleven items
to the ten-item express checkout.
We drum our fingers while the microwave heats our coffee.
“Come on, come on.”
We really don’t like to wait!

Look around you.
Do you realize where we sit?
This planet is God’s waiting room.
The young couple? Waiting to get pregnant.
The guy with the briefcase? Waiting for work.
Waiting on God to give or to help.
Waiting on God to come.
The land of waiting.
And you?
Are you in God’s waiting room?

You may be infertile or inactive,
in limbo, in between jobs
or in search of a house, spouse, health, or help.
Here’s what you need to know.
While you wait,
God works!
God never twiddles His thumbs.
He never stops.
Just because you’re idle, don’t assume God is.
Trust Him.
In the right time, you’ll get through this.

From You’ll Get Through This ~~~Max Lucado

Wait . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
