Find me waiting

Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him.” Isaiah 30:18

I become irritable if I have to wait for anything too long. I want to take matters into my own hands. But often in scripture we’re told to “wait” for the Lord—to give him time to do his work.

There is a reason to be patient: He longs to be gracious and he rises to show compassion. I’d like to be the recipient of that! Those who wait for him are going to be blessed. It’s going to be worth the wait.

May the reality of my life match the longing of his heart to pour out love and grace. Let me not live in a way that prevents it!

You are worth waiting for.

Your blessing is precious and sweet—

Sweeter than anything else out there.

Find me ready.

Find me receptive.

Find me waiting.
