Waiting and Trusting

As we wait to hear about all of the legal ramifications in our daughter’s death it reminds me of all of the times that God told people to wait and trust in him. Waiting seems to be God’s way of telling us to trust him to be in control, to know the best possible thing that can happen in our situations. But my human side cries out to hurry up, take care of this, give me an answer and even, what is taking so long? Patience has never been one of my stronger gifts so God has really had to work on this part of my life. But amazingly something else has occured while I am waiting; I have slowed down enough to hear God’s voice! His voice that tells me, “I will never leave you or forsake you” and “for I know the plans I have for you”. It is His voice that gives me peace on nights that I have trouble sleeping and His voice that says I share in your tears, I will comfort you. Without God in my life I do not know where I would turn to for strength.

So as we wait, we wait with God’s arms around us, holding us very close.

Do you know the God I am talking about?
