Striving to wait well

I re-listened to this Waiting Well sermon this weekend. I listened to it twice. It couldn't be more timely and was such a good reminder to me that how I wait matters.

It was a reminder to 'stay present' in today.

To give thanks to God while I wait.

And to seek God during my last days of waiting.

I needed to hear these words.

Last night from 4:30 - 5:30 a.m. I couldn't sleep so I sat on my porch and talked with the Lord. It was a good lesson in being still and waiting patiently for Him. Something I will always strive to do, but never comes naturally.

Pastor John Fuller's main point hit home with me once again as I listened to his sermon on waiting well. This is, by far, one of the most meaningful and powerful quotes I've ever heard:
The way that we wait reveals the extent to which we trust the one we are ultimately waiting for.

Again, I was reminded that ultimately I wait for the Lord. And how I wait reveals my level of trust in the Lord's perfect and beautiful timing.

Waiting well....a life-long lesson.
