WAIT, Stop, Sit, Stay!!

O, LORD, you know waiting patiently does not come easily to me, but I know it is nonetheless very good for me. I long to plan ahead, make definitive decisions, and make things happen. There is a time for that, but this is not the time. Now is a time for sitting in Your Presence, trusting You with my whole being.

I so desperately want to do it well. Calm my anxious heart and teach me the word I hate…patience, for Jesus’ sake, I pray. Amen

Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore He will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!—Isaiah 30:18
