Well, I'm still waiting. Still waiting to hear from PLU to find out if I have been accepted into their prestigious nursing program. It has not been easy. I'm also waiting to finally lose those last 10 pounds. It has NOT been easy. I find myself saying "I can't wait to graduate in June" and be done with the first half of this exciting journey. But the truth is I can wait. There are a lot of things that we wait for in life. I'm getting that all too important reminder these days that it isn't easy to wait.
This last week was one of loss again. A dear Saint that has encouraged me often went home to be with the Lord. She is not waiting anymore. She has arrived. Another friend got married recently after many years of waiting. Her dream is finally realized and the wait was definitely worth it.
I was pondering this today, and started to wonder what God must feel when he is waiting on me. Waiting for me to open the Bible and get a fresh word from Him. Waiting for me to stop missing the small things because I'm waiting for the big things. God is good. He is patient. I'm thankful He waits for me.
So as I wait this week and wonder what will be next, I will choose to live in the moment. I will remain faithful to the little things and pray that God strengthens me to handle the big ones.
Fall is here!
