Posts Tagged ‘focusing on Jesus’

My husband and I recently experienced a waiting day. We were in the hospital for his surgery pre-op, and ended up spending seven (7) hours for what could have been an hour-long appointment in a perfect world.

I had read the daily devotional thought that arrives in my inbox every morning, and had then forgotten about it. When I saw it there again the following day, the title took me by surprise: “Waiting on the Lord.”

How fitting. Throughout our day of waiting and reading and eating food from the cafeteria (amazing how they can make all the food taste the same) and talking, I had forgotten that “Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him” Isaiah 64:4. I had momentarily forgotten that He cares and He sees and He is aware of our minutes and hours. Of our waiting times.

The gist of the rest of the inspirational thought was that we need to respond by focusing on Jesus. The article said: “We wait and God acts.” What an encouraging and energizing reminder of our great God and His love for us.

Life is full of times of waiting, so let’s wait actively and expectantly as God works in our lives.
