Waiting

P8040350
How exciting to know that what you’ve asked God for is on its way.  As God works behind the scenes to bring about everything you’re waiting for, your faith is at work preparing for the arrival of His blessing.
(from Whispers of Faith)

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40:1-3

  4. Waiting is very, very hard! I waited almost 16 years for one of my prayers to be answered! Not easy.

    I think of the story of Abraham taking Isaac up the mountain as a sacrifice - the ram was coming up the other side of the mountain (but Abraham didn't know it yet!) Gen. 22

    The answer is coming!
