Be still my soul, God is in the waiting.
He’s present, patient, working. Sometimes I see Holy Spirit at work, others times I don’t – but I know God is always at work.
From ages past no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who works for those who wait for him. Isa 64:4
He’s at work in my waking hours. He’s at work in resting. Sometimes my resting is not so restful, it feels like restlessness and like I am trying to take just one deep breath. It hurts. And I am reminded that God is in my waiting.
God help me in the waiting. Help me to rest in you. Help me to see you, the only God who became visible in and through Jesus Christ.
Friend, I don’t know where you’re at today, but I felt a strong push to write this short blog post to remind us that God is in our waiting. Let us trust that he is working for those who wait for him.
Praying for all of you who feel discouraged in the waiting.
Be at peace my soul, God is in the waiting.
Held by God in the waiting,
