What Are you waiting for?

Those five simple words can spark a lot of emotion. When we hear those words we can be moved by anger or by perseverance. Now, it all depends on the situation at hand and how these words are spoken. Many times, we often hear those words in our head, but more often than not, we don't follow-through with the answer.
"What are you waiting for?" Is it a new job, car, home, child, miracle... In different seasons of life we are waiting for different things. Today, I would like to talk about what we do in the "wait" time.
There are countless Scriptures in the Bible that teach us how we should wait. Here are a few:
And here is my favorite one: "but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isa 40:31.
We are instructed countless times in His Word that we wait in hope, trust, faith and patience. There are many times the season of waiting does not feel like a season any longer but more of a lifestyle. As your heart grows burdened by what seems to be a silence from God, turn to His promises in the Word and remember He is good, and His timing is perfect.

God's plan for you is a perfect plan. It will not always be pleasant, but it will always be perfect. We have to trust with a faith unseen that he is working out the details of our circumstance, and in His perfect time He will answer us in our "wait."
It's not always easy, not always fun, but when we wait on The Author and Perfecter of our Faith, His will ends up being better for us than we could have ever hoped for or imagined. Eph. 3:20
As He faithfully answers, journal or write down the verses He leads you too. I will write down verses on index cards and while I am "waiting" on an answer from Him, I will meditate and pray over these Scriptures. When I do that a peace will flood into my heart, helping me wait with patience.
My prayer for you and I today is that we would fully turn over our "waiting for" to the Lord and wholeheartedly wait in great expectation for His answer; and when His answer comes-albeit a "yes" or "no" or a "not yet" that we would continue to trust in His plan for our life. 
In Him,
