During Lent, we wait. While we wait, we are preparing. We are growing. We are taking time to think about what is about to happen to Jesus. As we read scriptures, pray or participate in some other spiritual discipline, we begin to see things differently. We instead begin to see not what happened to Jesus, but what God did for us! We wait painfully, we wait patiently. The bottom line is that we wait. And in 2023, waiting for something has become a difficult challenge for us. Because everything from text messages to groceries come quickly. Our hope and prayer is to trust God's timing in our lives and in the life of the church.
Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Psalm 27:14 (NIV)
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
