In God's Waiting Room

Many of our Pilgrim Pals are in a "waiting" mode. Waiting for God to provide, waiting for an opportunity to arise, waiting for a new position, waiting to see how the Father will deal with a particular circumstance.

I know that I'm in that mode. He has asked us to wait on Him. To emphasize His point He often uses the word "wait" twice within a verse. "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." - Psalm 27:14 (KJV)

This morning I read the following poem in OUR DAILY BREAD. Be encouraged by this today, dear Pals.

Wait and, in waiting, listen for His leading;
Be strong, thy strength for every day is stored.
God forth in faith, a let thine heart take courage;
There is no disappointment with the Lord.

Universal makes a verscard that says "God says wait, but he never says worry!"

I LOVE that verse, Pilgrim!!! The one in Psalms about waiting on the Lord (i am terrible with remembering refernces!! whenever I give people verses I have to look up the spot by where the bookmarks are in my Bible...there are dozens of little slips of paper all over my Bible).

God bless you,

Did you get the note we sent you? just wondering if it made it there safe.
