How do we Wait?

I’m linking up again with Kate for Five Minute Friday.  If you don’t know the rules, you can click here.  If you don’t have a blog, you can make your post in her comments.  Come on!  It’s fun!

The word today is wait.  Time starts NOW:

Waiting.  It’s not easy, nor is it fun.  Sometimes it’s downright HARD!

We wait for test results.  We wait for healing.  We wait to see what God has in His plans for our future.

A friend and I have been emailing this week.  We were discussing those issues.  And honestly we were wondering HOW those that do not know Jesus as their personal savior make it when the hard times come?

The rain falls on the just and the unjust.  Bad things DO happen to good people.

But where do they turn?

Ever heard of foxhole belief?  Even those that don’t believe, believe when difficulties come.  Many make “the promise” to change if only God will help them.  After the crisis has passed, some keep that promise.  Most, go back to their previous existence without another thought to their promise.

The atheist must believe in God because if he didn’t there would be nothing to protest.  They wouldn’t get so worked up about those of us that believe.

I think they’re jealous.  Yes.  So angry because they are jealous that they don’t think they can have what “we” have.

Faith to trust in those things we know

STOP!

Faith to trust in those things that humans cannot dare to know.  An illness, a diagnosis.  An unborn baby that God chose to form imperfectly in our human eyes but exactly as HE planned.

Trust to wait…to put their faith in the Lord, the Creator and Sustainer of Life.

To know that no matter the outcome, God has purposed His plan for our good and His glory.

    Such profound words, I loved your post. I am your neighbor on #FMFP. We sometimes have to be in God’s waiting room and have faith that He will work it to our good. Thanks for your post. Blessings
