Isaiah 8:16: I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face from the house of Jacob, and I will hope in God.I spend way too much time waiting for something to happen. I spend my weekdays wishing for the weekends. I spend my daughters’ lives wishing they were x [usually older] age so we can do X [really big thing]. I spend winter wishing for warmer weather and summer wishing for cooler weather. My impatience does not make it happen any sooner than it will and all I do is spend time in worry or want when I could spend that time in the moment. Enjoying my work, enjoying my daughters, enjoying my life. Abba, when I get into those modes of want or worry, remind me of what I do have. Remind me of your blessings you have already given. Remind me to step out in faith and that you will richly bless me and my family when I do.
