Hi beautiful #mightyDeborahs!

A song that I am playing on repeat of late is Take Courage by Kristene DiMarco (Bethel Music). I love the words of the chorus which are:

Take courage my heart
Stay steadfast my soul
He’s in the waiting
He’s in the waiting
Hold onto your hope
As your triumph unfolds
He’s never failing
He’s never failing

#mightyDeborahs how are you waiting? I imagine you are probably far better at waiting than I am LOL! Patience has never been my strong suit. I have certainly had to breath deep in my being until it resonates that I am to be still and to know He is God. Waiting for me often brings up feelings of anxiety and the ‘I am not good enough’ scenarios – that maybe I am waiting because I haven’t done x, y and z well enough, or maybe I am waiting because I am not hearing God well, or maybe I am waiting as an excuse instead of doing something, or maybe I am waiting because …………etc etc.

I think you get the picture. In the current season of my life I am learning that none of those scenarios are so! All I need to know and focus my mind, heart, soul and hope on, is HE IS IN THE WAITING. If He is with me it means I do not have to be afraid or try and work out what the next steps of the journey are. I just have to stand in knowing, without doubting HE IS IN THE WAITING.

As I woke this morning the words of this song were going over and over in my head and the scripture from isaiah 40:21 As I WAIT upon the Lord I will mount up with wings as an eagle. I will run and not be weary and I will walk and not faint. I repeated this scripture over to myself as I headed out on my morning walk. It has felt a very long time since I have woken up with a scripture burning on my heart. When you are WAITING everything around you – all you have been, all you are now and all you dream may be ahead is silent. I felt a peace wash over me afresh as I continued to think over this scripture. When I got back home and picked up my devotion booklet the tears started flowing – what scripture was right there in the reading? You guessed it: Isaiah 40:21.

“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles [that’s elevation]; they shall run, and not be weary [that’s acceleration]; and they shall walk, and not faint [that’s duration].’ (Isaiah 40:31 KJV) And when you don’t have the strength to do any of these things, Paul says, ‘Having done all…stand.’ (Ephesians 6:13 KJV) There’s a season in your life for all these experiences and you must embrace it.”  



#mightyDeborahs He is in the waiting.

Love and hugs to you xx
