Have you been following along with this devotion challenge? Jump in. There’s no requirements. We’re going through Thirty Days of Devotion and sharing thoughts, prayers, and experiences in the comments section. You are invited to join us.
But more importantly, you’re invited to spend some time with your Savior. I hope you will accept His invitation and join Him in some quiet time this Lord’s day.
Today’s entry is about “The Waiting Place.” That’s the name of the horrible place in Dr. Seuss’s book, Oh, the Places You’ll Go. But a waiting place isn’t always such a bad thing.
Waiting is necessary. For cakes to bake, flowers to bloom, traffic to move, books to be published. You wait in a checkout line at the grocery store and wait for your turn when playing a board game. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit and the Lord urges us to use it in the primary verse for today’s entry.
Still, it does have a downfall. The primary problem with waiting, at least to me, is when I can’t tell when the waiting is over. This is where that lesson from the movie, “Facing the Giants” comes in. Two farmers pray for rain, but only one of them goes out and prepares his field.
It’s what you do while you’re waiting that makes the difference! (Tweet This!)
Everybody is called to wait at some point in their life, but again, the attitude with which we wait can impact those around us as much as it affects us. Yeah, that attitude lesson again. There’s no getting away from it. We are to have the attitude of Christ in all things. Even during the annoyances of waiting.
Your Turn: What are you waiting for? How are you waiting?
This song pumps me up. Regardless of my waiting, the length of it or the status of it, God is GOOD!
