They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. - Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
I hate waiting. For me waiting is wasting time. I want the plane to take off once I am seated. I expect the server to bring the food soon after I place my order at a restaurant. Waiting makes me feel angry, frustrated, even hopeless.
After my home was damaged...
When I wait on the Lord, I am not wasting time.
Peace for someone anxiously waiting

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
