Wait.

I am thankful today, especially as illness begins to subside here in our home. We had a lovely, spontaneous day out in the sunshine, and in so many ways I feel blessed beyond measure. I am undeserving.



Yet, there is the constant awareness that life here is never perfect no matter how bountiful God's blessings are. If it were, I suppose we might forget our great need.


Soul, wait for the Lord.

"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him." Ps. 37:7

"I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry." Ps. 40:1

"I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning." Ps. 130:5,6

"It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” Is. 25:9

"Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him." Is. 30:18

"The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." Lam. 3:25


"But as for me, I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me." Micah 7:7


I've been enjoying the music of Sara Groves recently, and this song seems fitting.
