moments of inspiration
today i saw a tree come down


IMG_0509Waiting . . . not our first choice and not something that many of us like to do.  In a world of instant coffee, microwave popcorn and Netflix movies now, waiting is not our strong suit.

Waiting is hard; especially when things aren't going our way and we don't know what is next.

"Wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." Psalm 27:14

In waiting we feel like all is stopped and life has been put on pause. But in the Lord, this is not the case.  When it seems like nothing is happening, something is happening.  The fish are in the river, the seed is germinating and the stone is being rolled away.  It is left to the fisherman, the farmer and the disciple . . . to wait.

Waiting is hard, but in Jesus Christ waiting is not futile.  It is filled with life and hope.  

"[T]hey that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Waiting upon the Lord is hard, but in the end, worth it.  

I recently came across this song and video by Colony House.  I like this group, their music and the message of this song.  Enjoy.
