Still Waiting…

Today begins week 4 without a job. When I began this process 6 weeks ago I knew that I must wait on God’s timing. Today, I’m still waiting. I know I’m doing the right thing because I sense He is telling me to be patient and wait for Him. So, that’s what I’m doing.

Let me begin by saying I felt led to type this post about waiting yesterday, but I hesitated because I couldn’t think of exactly how I wanted to word it. I believe I received some clarity this morning when I opened my e-mails. One was a daily devotional I receive. The title of today’s e-mail was “Wait on the Lord“. Coincidence??? I think not! Yesterday in church we sang the song Everlasting God. The song begins like this.

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord

We will wait upon the Lord

We will wait upon the Lord

Then, when I was in the car this morning going to the grocery store I heard the song While I’m Waiting by John Waller. (See my earlier post Waiting… for lyrics and a video).

I know I’m supposed to be waiting on the Lord. I’m waiting on His timing and plan for my career path. I’ve said before and will say again…walking by faith is hard! It’s not easy being patient and waiting when you’re not sure how the bills will be paid, how long the process is going to take, or where He will lead you. But, I’m learning daily that He is telling me to do just that…be patient and wait. But how should I wait?

Today’s devotional gave me some good ideas. First, I am to wait in prayer. I’ll say that I’m doing a pretty good job there. I have prayed so much about everything that is going on with me now. He already knows my heart, but I’m pouring it all out regardless. I’m praying for God’s provision for me and my family, and I’m asking Him to reveal His plan for my career to me. Second, I must wait in faith. My faith has been strengthened over the last few weeks. I am confident that God is going to lead me to the right career. I have faith that He will take care of me and my family during this time of waiting, and afterwards. I fully expect God’s purpose to be fulfilled in all of this.

So, as the title of this post suggests, I am still waiting. It’s not easy, but I will wait as patiently as I can. Would you please continue to pray for me and my family during this time? I can’t wait to share what God does with all my readers. I’ll close with the Scripture from today’s devotional. It was Psalm 27:14, but I’m adding verse 13 as well.

I am certain that I will see the LORD’s goodness in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be courageous and let your heart be strong. Wait for the LORD.
