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...

Today's Prayer
Father God, teach us to wait upon you. Help us to know that you are always working for our good. Amen.
