“I wait for you, my soul waits, and in your word
My soul awaits the Beloved
As one awaits the fulfillment of their destiny,”
What does it feel like to wait alone ?
It is frustrating at times as if you are missing something,
wasting time, looking around, waiting for something, someone.
Where are you waiting and for what and who?
When you are waiting with someone it can make all the difference. It doesn’t matter so much if you missed the train you were waiting for, there will always be another one coming. There is comfort just knowing you are not alone. There is someone besides you to wait with you and help.
When Jesus' family went looking for him, they were waiting for him outside. He turned and called to those who were listening, saying they were his true family, his brother, sister and mother. Matt 12:46-50
And we are his and he is with you, and me and that makes us a part of his family.
Stop and think what that feels like to really belong and know you are never alone.
If we pursue his kingdom in our lives then we will fulfill his destiny for us and we do it together.
As we wait, “we keep hoping, keep trusting, keep waiting on the Lord. For he is tender hearted, kind and forgiving. He has a thousand ways to see you free!
He himself will redeem you.”
So let’s wait on the Beloved redeemer and let’s wait together knowing that we are a part of something greater, wider and deeper than what we hold on so tight here on earth.
May our eyes look upon the grandeur and beauty of what will be.
May we live as if our lives count by being free and true to who you are and who we are meant to be.
May we treasure our differences knowing that we cannot do this alone.
He is the one waiting for us, and with us and in us.
Lord, set us free and bring your kingdom of hope, truth and unity.
Peace be with you this day!
