GOD IS IN THE WAITING

"Wait..."

This has been a constant word in our home.  I command Risen to do this.  Bryan asks me to wait and Risen for the past months, in some occasions, replies with a "wait..."

I remember when I was not yet a christian , I am so entitled that I hated it when people or service centered offices ask me to wait.  If I hear this one word command, I needed to know how much long I will stay to get what I needed.  So funny how  God reminded me of my past when Risen gets impatient ;)

As a mother, waiting happens in two ways.  (1) Either I tell Risen that I will just do something WHILE I wait for him.  An example of this is when I tell him to go up to his room and dress up while I wait AND gather the clutter downstairs.  And another situation I wait for him is when I tell him (2) "I will stay here, watch you, and I will wait for you.." This happens when he asks me to put him to sleep, in our Writing lessons (I homeschool Risen), and  when he tells me "mommy, wait for me and stay here na din".

And do you know who else ask us to wait? Jesus.

There are countless of times He asked me (and He still has been asking me) to wait. And it is possible that you are also in the season of waiting.  I want to encourage you that Jesus is with you while You are waiting for Him.  He is not busy with something else.  When He asks you to wait, he is not abandoning you.  He is alongside you, rooting for you.  Encouraging you to stay strong in the season of waiting.

Waiting on God may not be an easy task, but if He clearly asked you to wait, know that it will be worth it.  Be secured that it will be worth the wait.
