I read an article a while ago that said that we will spend 5 years of our life waiting in line! I was probably reading it while I was waiting. There have been times that I’ve felt like I waited 5 years in one line, usually behind someone checking lottery tickets. That doesn’t even start to include the time we spend waiting on the phone, waiting at red lights and stop signs and waiting in doctor and dentist offices.
If you are anything like me, you probably don’t like waiting; nothing seems to irritate me more than waiting for something to happen — in the case of the dentist’s office, it almost seems perverse to be waiting for what’s going to happen there! But sometimes in this super-fast world, waiting is the only time we get to think. The Old Testament prophet Isaiah wrote in Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
This week, why not take a little bit of time to wait on the Lord, a little bit of time to ask Him, “God, what are your plans for my life?” He might have a pleasant surprise in store for you. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
