Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been waiting for something. I remember telling my mom I couldn’t wait until I was a decade old. And then of course came the impatience to be in high school, then in college, then married, and so on.
Now again I’m in a season of waiting. Maybe you are too. Perhaps your heart yearns to hold a child. Maybe you want to find the spouse that God has for you. Or you’ve sought the Lord to see where He is leading your family in a future job opportunity. Whatever it is, I’m with you! I’m waiting to see what the Lord will do in an area of life we’ve been committing to Him.
A few days ago I came across a poem in my Streams in the Desert devotional that brought tears to my eyes. It reminded me just how great God is and how each moment is woven together to create a beautiful tapestry. Can I encourage you with this today?
Till next steps made plain shall be;
To hear, with the inner hearing,
The Voice that will call for me.
Waiting! Yes, hopefully waiting!
With hope that need not grow dim;
The Master is pledged to guide me,
And my eyes are unto Him.
Waiting! Expectantly waiting!
Perhaps it may be today
The Master will quickly open
The gate to my future way.
Waiting! Yes, waiting! Still waiting!
I know, though I’ve waited long,
That while He withholds His purpose,
His waiting cannot be wrong.
Waiting! Yes, waiting! still waiting!
The Master will not be late:
He knoweth that I am waiting
For Him to unlatch the gate.
