While I'm waiting


     Are you in a season of waiting? I know I am. This song is telling us to be hopeful while we wait, to be obedient with every step we take and take those steps in faith and serve God while we wait. I will admit, that’s hard. We don’t have to be perfect for God to give us what we ask for. Sometimes He will tell us to wait. This is not because we don’t deserve His favor, it’s because He has a time and a season for all things. When He says wait, we need to remember Romans 8:28“And we know that in ALL things, God works for the good of those who love Him; who are called according to His purpose.” Yes, it is hard when God tells us to wait, and we may not always like waiting – I know I don’t, but we need to remember that He holds this world in His hands!

     While you are going through this season, will you be hopeful that He will answer you and give you what you need? Will you be obedient and take every step in faith as you wait for His reply? Will you serve Him while you wait? Doing these things is hard, I know. It is hard for me to do these things, but even when it’s hard, I know that He is there, He is watching me, He cares about me, and He loves me. We may not do everything perfect, but that’s OK. God doesn’t want perfect. He doesn’t want us to only come to Him when our “mess” is all fixed, He wants us to come to Him just as we are, broken people. So, don’t think you have to be perfect if God has asked you to wait. Remember that His answer of “wait” is for your best interest and do the best you can to stay with Him, knowing that He accepts you just as you are, even when you can’t do everything “just right.”

     During this season, you may not always do all of these things perfect, but do your best. That’s all He wants from you. Waiting is hard but stay strong!! God is faithful!!!
