W.A.I.T.

Life is full of waiting. We wait for a job; we wait for a significant other; we wait for healing; we wait for strength to face another day. Alot of life is about waiting and knowing when to move.
In our waiting we live. We have to. I won't say my brother was waiting to die - but at a certain point he knew. He had greater clarity because he was ill. When we are well we don't necessarily have this clarity.
I've recently moved across the country from the east coast to the west coast - and in moving I had a certain idea of how things would turn out. For the most part they have, but for me personally, I had a different expectation. Professionally, things have not happened as I anticipated, but what I'm learning is that since God is in control and He knows the plans He has for me - I will continue to trust Him. I won't fret or worry; I may question and have deep conversations with God so that I can further know his will; but I won't become anxious and I won't be miserable. I'll enjoy each day that God gives me with my family and those wonderful friends in my life. I'll be grateful for the big and small things - life, breath, food on my table and shoes on my feet.
I've come to appreciate the beauty of waiting - Wonderful Answers In Time. They that w.a.i.t. upon the Lord shall renew their strength...This is the perspective I choose to have as I W.A.I.T expectantly.

PS - I cannot take credit for the acronym wait - Its not mine, but I heard this for the first time at a ladies tea at my church.
