Patiently Waiting

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Psalm 37:7, NKJV

Waiting is the hard part. Waiting for results from a medical test. Waiting to learn about the job offer. Waiting your turn to board the airplane or be seated in the restaurant. Waiting for just the right time to talk about a difficult subject. Waiting for the bell to ring, for the storm to pass, or for the fish to bite. Waiting for Christmas Day. Waiting for your ship to come in.

The Bible teaches us to wait patiently for the Lord and rest in the knowledge of His perfect timing. As we wait quietly, others will make a splash or a scene. They might even find fame and fortune here. But one day, we will have everything in a perfect paradise. Just you wait.
