Waiting On the Lord.

"Waiting is just a gift of time in disguise--a time to pray wrapped up in a ribbon of patience...because is the Lord ever late?” ~Ann Voskamp

I've asked myself that question a thousand times, pertaining to a million different circumstances. And after much deliberation, my conclusion is--YES!-- God seems to make it a habit of being perpetually late!

But according to whose schedule? ;P

A friend of mine once told me, "Waiting upon the Lord is easy, but not simple...It is not always easy, but it is always worthy."

May we never grow tired of waiting upon HIM! For then HE shall renew our strength. When we are weak, then we are strong, for the power of Christ dwells in us! We shall mount up with wings like eagles. We shall run and not be weary. We shall walk and not faint. To much is given, much is also required. Whatever we sow, that we shall also reap. And if God be for us, who can prevail against us? Delight yourself in the Lord, and HE shall gives you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to HIM and HE shall bring it to pass. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for HIM!

And may we never forget: ALL things work together for GOOD to those who love HIM and are called according to HIS will. :) Even if it takes longer than we had originally supposed...
