Waiting on the Lord...

Hi Pals!

I have watched the brand-new movie "Fireproof" four times in the last 2 weeks....yes, I love it, and no, you can't buy it yet, but you can request it to review it, as I found out! There is a song on there that really struck is called "While I'm Waiting" and it's by John Waller. I researched it and found the following verses that he put with they are below:

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalm 5:3

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Psalm 27:14

Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. Psalm 33:20

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Psalm 37:7

For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. Psalm 38:15

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1

And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. Isaiah 3

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Lamentations 3:24

His explanation for the song is:

"The explanation for this song is simple, I was waiting on God and I was hurting when I wrote the lyrics. I probably wouldn’t have written
a song if my friend, Mike, hadn’t encouraged me to document what I was going through during that time. I’m sure there are few people
who can’t relate to this song, but the important thing to remember while we’re waiting on God is to not just wait but to actively wait.
Serve, worship and be faithful with what you have, where you are… “even while (you) wait.”

The song really hit home for me, so I am posting it here...I hope it encourages you, too. The scene in this youtube video is from Fireproof. When you see where it is in sequence of the movie, it is extremely touching...I cried the first few times when I watched that scene!

Enjoy, and God bless you as you patiently wait on Him!

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Love and Prayers,
