Teachable Moments: Waiting

I will instruct you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. - Psalm 32:8

Waiting. It is a really hard thing to do sometimes. Especially when what you are waiting for is something you've been anxious about. Right now I'm in a state of waiting. I'm waiting for God to move. I'm waiting for him to tell me what to do. It feels like it has been forever. Some days are easier than others, but today has not been one of those days. In my anxious waiting heart today I decided to pick up a new book and get reading. As I read, Psalm 32:8 stuck out to me... "I will instruct you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." In my anxious waiting today I have been asking God what he wants me to do. This morning the Lord gave me this verse, "He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10 God's words sent to quiet my heart were filled with his fatherly love, yet my heart sank in impatience. I get it. God wants me to wait, right now I am to do nothing. I am to be still. I am to wait. 

I do trust you. I know that you understand my heart's desires and that you work in my best interest. Help me to wait patiently for you to move. Help us all to wait and to trust you in our waiting.

God sees the big picture, he has an intricate plan, but we must trust him and wait patiently for the right time to come. 

Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not disregard it. Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord
Proverbs 8:33-35
