Waiting on the Lord's timing is not that hard once you realize it's an opportunity for growth somewhere else. So as we wait we lift up our prayers or needs then go and do something else i.e. help a friend do housework or a craft or listen to Christian music etc . I agree our society has lost sight of this. Praise God for His word and people who serve as examples who help each other to not lose sight of the joy of waiting upon The Lord. I also would love to see this taught and practiced in our schools as our students seem to be constantly pushed in every direction. One prayer I have as I see many high school kids trying so hard to do it all is that they learn to be still in God's presence as they travel their journey to become successful men and women . For true success is only achieved by Gods plan for us. One confession I have is that I wish I truly understood that concept when I was younger! --Pauline Corti
Prayer for today: Father God,we love You and give You our praise this day. Lord we thank You for Your timing which is perfect despite what our desires may tell us to the contrary. Help us to use our waiting times to grow closer to You by prayers, service and time in Your word. Let us teach our young people by our own example, no matter our age. We ask this in Jesus's name. AMEN!
Confession for today: I confess that God's timing is perfect and I will wait patiently for it in all areas of my life. I will not try to circumvent God's timing by my own works of the flesh for I realize that is futile and a poor witness. I declare this by faith in Jesus. AMEN!
