Living and Waiting – My Story
I am in a time of living. A time of learning to be content and of doing the most with what I have been given. I am in a time of living. I want to make the most of the mundane moments of my day and to be on the lookout for those special God moments. You know the ones that God sets up to really bless you or for you to be a blessing someone else. I am in a time of waiting. Waiting for the Lord. I need His Spirit to empower me to be more, to love more, to imitate Christ more.
I am in a time of waiting. Waiting for some of the promises of God to come through. I have days where I feel quite restless. I have days where I almost forget I am waiting.
The balance of being content yet expectant has never come easy for me. Living and waiting at the same time seems contradictory to someone like me. Yet here I am. Lord, I will serve you with all that you have given me yet my heart is waiting expectantly for more of you. More of you to change me, change my community and my world to the likeness of you for your glory.
