It’s been 11 weeks since I made that phone call to Emily. These 11 weeks have flown by…I am not sure where May and June went. July is over half-way over and here we sit today at 37 weeks.
Time has flown by.
I’ve definitely reached that point when I just want Sweet Pea here, in my arms and completely ours.
But there are still more days (weeks) to walk before this can happen.
During my time with the Lord this morning, I came across this verse and it spoke volumes of where I am today:
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:14
That is where I am today: waiting on the Lord to move.
This is His show. He is the one that calls the shots, He is the one directing. He is the one that will tell when it is time to pull back the curtain and let the performance begin. It is all for His glory.
I am just one of many sitting out in the audience waiting for the show to begin.
I have no say so in who the characters will be or how the drama will unfold.
So I’m gonna go get my popcorn, prop my feet up on the theater chair in front of me (as long as one of you aren’t sitting there already ) and I’m gonna wait for God to start moving.
Waiting on the Lord is torturous when I get up from my comfy seat in the audience and start trying to tell God what to do to get the show on the road.
Waiting on the Lord, truly waiting on the Lord to move, is peaceful, as long as I am holding onto the only thing keeping me in that comfy seat.
And it isn’t my popcorn.
It’s my faith in Jesus Christ.
