Wait: Day 25 & FMF

How do you wait in difficult seasons?
With fingers crossed, hoping for the best?
Eyes on the clock?
Stomach in knots?
Feet tapping?
Or resigned to whatever comes?

“Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord,” said the Psalmist David (Psalm 27:14, NLT). How could he wait patiently for the LORD and be brave and courageous? He knew God to be his light and salvation, his fortress, protecting from danger (Psalm 27:1, NLT) . He set his focus on God and had high expectations of Him. And with God’s help, so can we.

This post is for Day 25 of the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes Writing Challenge and the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up. The theme of my series is, “Season,” (which, at this point in the challenge, is loosely) based on the definition, “make (wood) suitable for use as timber by adjusting its moisture content to that of the environment in which it will be used.” Click here to find the Table of Contents and links to other posts in the series, and here to learn about Five Minute Friday.

    1. True. I am thinking that fear can cause us to make rash decisions, so we need courage from God to face uncertainty and be patient. Thanks for reading and giving me something to reflect on.

  2. The topic of waiting also reminded me of King David and the Psalms. While I am waiting, I need to constantly remind myself of truths from God’s word. I hope you have a lovely weekend!

    1. Jolene, Thanks for reading. I find this verse encouraging, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4, NIV). May you have a lovely weekend also.
