Day 6 Wait on the Lord

Psalm 27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

One of the hardest things to do, in my opinion, is to have to wait!  I would consider myself a very patient person when it comes to dealing with other people.  But, waiting drives me insane, sometimes!  Especially when you are waiting on one piece of information so that you can plan other things around it!

And then I read verse 14 of Psalm 27 and I have to stop myself in my impatience and realize that I'm in the "waiting" mode because God has put me there for a reason!  In HIS time.....I'm in HIS time zone, not mine!  I may never know the reason for the waiting period.  But I can be assured that it is for my good and His glory!  So instead of being impatient in the waiting, I will wait on the Lord and do as Psalm 136:1  instructs: O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Nothing we can do will hurry the Lord!  Nothing!  So, I will wait!  I've already mentioned in previous posts that we are waiting on Tim doing the stress test before he is admitted into the hospital one week from tomorrow on November 4th to begin the cancer treatments.  We were hoping to be able to go to see his mom and dad and also take a few days of vacation just to get away by ourselves before the craziness of the treatments begin.  Everything hinges on when the stress test is scheduled!

The church gave us a gift tonight for Pastor Appreciation Month.  Calvin spoke for the church and gave us such a nice complement of being a blessing to them and that they considered our whole family, including kids and grandkids, as part of their families!  They love them all!  And we are so blessed to have a church that really loves and respects their pastor and takes good care of us!  Also, totally unexpected, we were given a gift from one of the other couples of the church.  These gifts will help us in the expense of getting away for a few days, Lord willing!

Bless the Lord, Oh my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Psalm 103:1
