I was reminded this evening about God’s timing in psalm 130. Verse 5 says “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope.” During our day we rush from one activity to the next. Yet when we have to wait in line at a store or in traffic or someone who is late we seem to focus solely on “our” time, or lack of it. What would happen to our demeanor if we used these waiting times for little snippets of time with God or doing His work? Just think, that long line in the store gives us an opportunity to pray for someone on our prayer list, speak an encouraging word to the cashier or weary mom in front of us. When we have to wait in traffic we can seek God and ask for guidance and understanding. If we use our “waiting” time to be quiet times with God our days may improve significantly.
How will you use your “waiting time” on this Lenten journey? Will you be still and know that He is God?
