Waiting.......

For those finding themselves in a time of silence, waiting............


Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act. 
Psalm 37:7

Sometimes it takes more time than we are comfortable with for us to 'feel' the grace of God ministering to our need.

If we are not diligent to guard our hearts, doubt will begin to haunt our thoughts. We start to wonder if God really cares. Discouragement will start to seep into our heart, and then begin to do it's work, spreading and growing. It is at this point, if we don't take our thoughts captive unto the obedience of Christ,  the seeds of discouragement and doubt will start to take root, splitting us apart, until we find ourselves crumpled in a heap.

We have to trust in the One who is totally trustworthy. God doesn't work on our time table, but He has promised to never leave us nor forsake us. He gives us His Word on this. He means it. God cannot lie. His Word is truth and He backs it. I think this time of silence, this waiting, is part of God's way of growing us up into His likeness.

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen: 
it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. 
Hebrews 11:1

A verse that has spoken much to my  heart in these sort of times is Psalm 37:5


Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him and He will help you. 


Trusting God, and trusting that He is ALWAYS  for us, is essential to this life of faith.

Waiting is indeed hard, but the outcome, when we cast our cares on Him, is always a strengthened, deeper level of faith and trust in the One who truly does carry us through the hardest times.

A worship video for you,  to encourage you while you are waiting on God.


Love in Christ,

Renee, so nice to see you today at the link up! Brought a smile to my face my new friend! Oh waiting can be so hard. But some of my most favorite promises in the Word of God are about waiting, how He strengthens us when we wait, etc. Waiting is really about trust, isn't it?
