Waiting

Waiting is our destiny.
A creature who cannot, by themselves, bring about something.
We wait in darkness for a flame we cannot light;
we wait in fear for a happy ending we cannot write;
we wait for a ‘not yet’ that feels like a ‘not ever’.
Waiting is the hardest work of hope;
 waiting is the land between where things were and where things will be;
 and you don’t get to choose when you get to a waiting room,
but you certainly get to choose how you will respond to waiting.
- Lou Smeads



The Work of God in us while we wait is more important than what we are waiting for




I want to say more, but won't at this moment because i fear that to expound will dilute the potency of these words. Instead I pray that the Spirit will interprete and reveal the depths to all that come across this post.
