Wait Pt. 1

Have you ever been promised something, but had to wait for the promise to be fulfilled?  All of us know what waiting is like.  I don't know anyone who enjoys waiting.  We live in a culture where everything is right here, right now.  We have the answer to everything at our fingertips!  The days of math teachers saying "you won't always have a calculator on hand" are behind us.  Waiting is inconvenient and un-enjoyable for most.

Have you ever had to wait on God?  Has He promised you something, but had to wait to see the promise fulfilled?  This may be the hardest thing to wait on.  We know that God will fulfill everything He promises to us.  We don't have to doubt God's faithfulness to us. 

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
This week, I want to share with you the lessons I have learned through waiting on God.  Tomorrow, I will share with you the backstory on how God changed the direction my life was going career wise.  Spoiler, I felt like God didn't meet me at the end of the promise.  Wednesday, I will share with you what Scripture says about God's promises.  Thursday, I will share with you what you can learn while waiting on God. 
It's going to be a fun week.  No one enjoys waiting, but God has more in store for us in the journey than in the destination.

  1. I can be so impatient. Waiting is tough for me. I'm working on my patience.
