Once again, I am one day late on this; it seems I need an extra day to pray and dwell on this post. Each new day in life can be full of unanswered questions and new challenges. Just when I think I have found solutions, a new dilemma arises. And often, it is an unwelcomed problem. Among other lessons, I know God is nearby and is teaching to continue in faith when the path ahead is cloudy and obscure. He is teaching me to continue to trust in him when I am having a hard time trusting in others. He is teaching me to continue in prayer even when I am at a loss for words. He is teaching me to remain at peace when I see a river of trouble ahead. And when I am most impatient for answers and solutions to all of my dilemmas, he is teaching me to be patient and wait; with a peaceful, sincere, and believing heart, I am to patiently and quietly wait on the Lord.
Psalms 27:14 (Holy Bible New International Version):
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait on the Lord.”
