Berthille Laveist-Chittick (St. Maarten)
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
