Day 9

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait
I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait
-While Im Waiting by John Walker

Very powerful words to a very powerful song. ive heard it a million times had it play on my ipod over a hundred times however tonight as i was driving home it took on a whole new meaning. If God told me to wait, theres no question im going to wait but am i being as patient in my waiting as i should be? am i praising Him thru my waiting or am i simply waiting becasue Hes not doing anything just yet. i must admit im being and have been for a long time just waiting becasue nothing was happening, and i was not patient or praiseful in my waiting, in fact i was honestly pretty bitter that God gave me such an answer. dont get me wrong i think if you upset or even angry with God thats something you need to express to Him, ive realized lately how angry ive been at the way certain things in my life have worked out but how can i expecat them to get any better if im so focused on how they didnt work out. yes we all could have taken a million other roads in our lives but the fact of the matter is we didnt. we choose the path we took and hopfully God gave us peace before choosing that path, so why do we then choose to doubt it. we are given peace to make a choice then as soon as we have to wait or it doesnt go exactlly how we think it should be get mad and start to doubt weather we even made the right decision. how selfish is that, maybe we just need to stop and remind ourselves its about His timming and plan and not our own. i know there are many areas in my life i need to remind myself of that every single day. i pray that i can have a spirit of peace and of understanding, im not saying ill always understand Hes plan because i know i wont, none of us will but i pray that everyday i will understand and remind myself its about Him and His plan, and even if i have to wait or i think i may have made a wrong turn somewhere along the way i know God will get me where i need to be. God isnt going to give you a peace about something then decide not to go with that plan, He knew the plan He had for us before we were formed in the woume and nothing is going to change that plan now. so trust Him and beileve in Him and the wisdom and peace He gives us. He gave it to you for a reason; beileve in it!
