waiting on Him…


For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear,
Nor has the eye seen a God besides You,
Who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him.
Isaiah 64:4 (nasb)


I fall into the pit often…
the pit of thinking I NEED to do something
to change the circumstances around me.

Quite honestly,
it is as if I think I can fix… life.

You would think I would know better.

I often forget.

I forget that when I rush into fix anything
I usually make a huge mess,
break a few valuables,
and ruin a thing or two
before I say,
“God, I need You!”

Why don’t I start with Him?

This picture,
this verse…
showed up on my facebook feed a few days ago.

I’ve been chewing on it since.

And, today, in the midst of trying to make something work,
change it up to benefit myself,
I said, “STOP! Wait.”

The wait was only about 2o minutes
and the blessing was something that could
only be explained by HIM.

So grateful for the lesson
because in the wait is the greater joy.

For the blessings that come from Him
are always worth the wait.

Makes me wonder how many blessings
I have forfeited trying to bless myself
instead of waiting…

maybe I don’t want to know.

  1. ‘trying to bless myself instead of waiting …’

    wow. I never thought of it that way before.

    1. I do it often, Linda, and it always backfires on me.

I'd love to know what you think...
