The Waiting Room

Posted on

I have four kids, and have been in waiting rooms too many times to count. Even in today’s waiting room with the TVs and endless stack of magazines, it is still not a place you want to be. In reality, I don’t think there is anyone who enjoys just waiting. Whether it is at a red light, waiting for that microwave lunch dinner, or waiting for Friday’s paycheck, most of us are impatient and waiting just is not our strong suit.

I am currently in a season of waiting. Waiting on God’s timing for several things in my life and in my opinion waiting is hard! The thought of waiting of God’s timing is a simple thought, but just because something is simple, does not make it easy. Most of the time when we are waiting it is because God is getting us ready. Ready for what He has for us, and so we will be the person He needs us to be to handle what he has. In this type of season, a season of transition, there are several things we need to be careful of. We need to make sure we don’t run ahead of God. We need to make sure we don’t take God’s plans for us into our own hands. And we need to remind ourselves that God’s ways are not our ways. God’s plans for us are often bigger than we can see for ourselves. So if you are in a season of waiting, be encouraged! God’s will win out and in His timing all things will come together. In the meantime, enjoy the moments for they will never come again and know that you are protected and given the strength to wait.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


Eagle’s Flight

The eagle soars on the mountain high

You too can soar and learn to fly

All that is within you, let it be free

They’re no restrictions, not even the ones you think you see

Your spirit flies high above on the wind

Your pride stays grounded, not knowing how to bend

The choice is yours, to fail to succeed,

It is up to you, either way you will bleed

Goals are set forth for some to achieve,

It is for you, if only you believe

Some people wait to follow not wanting to lead,

They wait endlessly and never succeed

But you that is not, for you that will never be,

Your spirit will lead you, for it has always been free

Though days may pass, have no fear

Your spirit flies high on the mountain and there is no fear here

Your day is coming, just around the bend

Victory is waiting, that is the stories’ end

Here is the answer, here is the way

Trust God and talk to him each and every day

And be all you can be, soar to great heights

Become an eagle and join the eagle’s flight
