While I'm Waiting

Today an obstacle was placed in the life of my family. I won't get into it on here. If this had happened this time last year, I would be in a panic and completely freaking out. And strangely one would think I would probably be freaking out anyway--but that hasn't even crossed my mind.

I immediately felt ok with the situation. I felt a peace and I began to trust that God is leading my family in a new direction. We don't know where that is yet, but honestly I can't wait to see. I have been in constant prayer over the situation today and the stress has stayed away. It's all in His plan and I'm trusting in that.

That's not always easy--I like to plan and control and I know I'm not the only one like that. I have been doing a lot of planning today, but nothing extreme. Just trying to stay organized with where we will be heading. It's all in God's hands and I'm so excited to see where He will take us.

I heard this song Monday and it immediately popped into my head. It's called While I'm Waiting by John Waller. It has been a reminder to me not to sit by complacently while I'm waiting on the Lord, but to serve and praise Him in the process.

While I'm Waiting
John Waller

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord


Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
1 Corinthians 9:24

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:12-14
