Isaiah 40:31

"Yet those who wait on the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."

Hurry up and wait. In our day of instant gratification we want God to act immediately. If we are in the midst of trials in our life that makes us the least bit uncomfortable we become restless and discouraged. If we allow God to work in us and through us we will find that when God does move it will be better than we imagined. God takes this time to mold us and shape us into the person we need to be. If we don't allow him to work out all the kinks then we will not be well equipped to face tribulations. This is a struggle of mine. I know what God says, but its hard for me to wait. I know though that he is bigger than any circumstance and when he speaks its as good as done. So I will continue to wait and allow him to work out all the kinks cause I have faith that his word is in the works.

  1. That reminds me of James 1:2-4 "My brethern, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temtations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." If this came easy it would be 'of the world' :) It has also been one of my biggest hurdles in my Christian walk. God gave me a verse to help me in 2003 and I used it as my life preserver since, Psalm 27:14 "Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord." God Bless You Heather. I think this blog is an awsome way to share the gospel everyday :)
