Wait and be still. Those are words in our current world that almost seem foreign. We have no problem telling that to our kids or someone else but me? 🫣 Today I am writing it is the Saturday morning before Easter. Yesterday was Good Friday and Sunday is the Resurrection. Makes me think about waiting. Tragedy happens, a need arises, you need God. You go to pray and pour out your need. Then… wait. What to do with wait?

Waiting can be a good thing helping to build a close dependence on Jesus. But waiting is hard. We have grown accustomed to the microwave society of instant gratification. We can have DIY videos and googled answers almost instantly from our pocket. Answers from Jesus are more like a fine simmering sauce that takes time to develop flavor.

That makes a lot of us try to do things on our own because we do see the answers fast enough to please us or our expectations weren’t meet. I am not good at this either. This is just my random thoughts 💭. I have found lately that preparing myself for this wait by practicing it now seems to make the presence of Jesus clearer than it was before. I am not great at it but practicing daily intentional prayer and silence and solitude are building habits that are good for me. Building those good healthy habits are good for soul, our spiritual self as well as our physical. Building a relationship with Jesus with daily talks with our father makes him easy to talk to about anything and everything. God is not a genie in a bottle that you control or baring your wish list to, he is your savior, your creator, and friend that loves you for you. Don’t forget that.

So what do you do with wait? Spend it with a friend. Could be a physical friend, someone who can pour into you spiritually. Someone you can lean into and be vulnerable with. Jesus is always waiting with you. You will never have to wait alone.

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the Lord. Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation! For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in. Teach me your way, O Lord, and lead me on a level path because of my enemies. Give me not up to the will of my adversaries; for false witnesses have risen against me, and they breathe out violence. I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭27‬:‭1‬-‭14‬ ‭ESV‬‬
