The Wait

The wait.
How do I live well in the wait?
He spoke the promise.
I heard it.
It was His voice.
But the wait makes His voice fade.
I start to doubt.
I start to wonder.
I question.
Did I hear right?
Was that really for me?
It’s hard to hang on. I’m tired.
I want to move on.
Let go of it.
Flip the switch.
Forget it.
But I can’t.
It’s always there.
The promise. The desire of my heart.
Calling to me. Never letting me go.

So, I learn to turn my focus from the desired thing to doing the right thing.
I learn to focus on doing the Kingdom work.
Doing His work, His way.
He promises to take care of me.
He promises to take care of my needs.
I will guard my heart in the wait.
I will guard against doubt, anger, bitterness, hardness.
His time, His way
It is the best way
I will trust Him as I passionately wait.
It will be worth it.
And I will be transformed by the waiting.

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” – Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
