I'm a daughter of the King of Kings, wife, and mother of 2 lovely young adult daughters. Focusing upward on Jesus.
//Waiting feels like sitting in a dark room when the electricity has gone out. Waiting is a part of my prayer life. A hard part, for sure. I don't always see immediate answers. The power feels like it's gone and I can't do anything, but that is exactly what Jesus wants!
He wants me to sit and be patient; to trust and have faith that He is working out all things for my good. Jesus is in control and knows my entire story; beginning to the end.
Sometimes the waiting is producing His character in me. Other times it may be saving me from something or preparing someone else to help with the answer at the// right time.
The Lord reminded me this week of this beautiful song, may it be our heart's cry this week.
This post was prompted by Kate Motaung's "Five Minute Friday," which she hosts on the Five Minute Friday website. Kate posts a single word each week and each blogger sets a timer for 5 minutes to write and then posts, with very little editing. (Some weeks I have more trouble with that part than others and this week I had problems posting on my blog.) Check out the other writers on this topic!
