"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." Psalm 27:14
I am on a mission trip the remainder of this week and thought I'd repost this from June 2010...
Well it has been a week of lasts for us at the Morrison household!! Summer is here but with it comes a little dose of saddness. Our Zach had his last day of kindergarden...I can't believe it has been 5 years since we brought our baby boy home from Guatemala!
But when I stop and think about it what does the Bible have to say about waiting? Isaiah 30:8 says, "Blessed are all who wait for Him!" Psalm 40:1 "I waited patiently on the Lord, he turned to me and heard my cry."
These are just a few examples but I get the feeling God is trying to tell us to wait...patiently and productively. Productive waiting means that while we wait on our answer from God we don't just sit still and fret. We continue to work for Him and the Kingdom. We continue to pray, read our bible, perform in our ministry-we don't just sit idle. Sitting idle can lead to a host of other problems like unbelief, fear, loneliness, and many other things.
So, I choose to wait productively today. I've played with my boys (gotten them away from the TV, Nintindo), did some laundary, looked at my stuff for VBS tomorrow. And what do you know, the mail lady just pulled in my driveway!
