In God’s Waiting Room

Today I was talking to my dear friend C. We were discussing a decision that my husband and I are trying to make. I told her that I would be fine with either choice but just didn’t like the waiting process. Her words of encouragement and offer of prayer ended our talk. Later as I thought about my words I realized that I am right where God wants me to be. I am in His waiting room. Or better put, I am in His trusting room. I not only need to trust God’s decision but also God’s timing. Sometimes I feel rushed knowing that my decisions affect other decisions of mine or even other peoples decision. In those moments, I forget that my God is soveriegn over all things. In Isaiah 40:31a it says “Yet those who wait on the Lord will gain new strength…”

God, As I sit in your trusting room, may I gain the strength for the task that you have for me. Amen
