The Waiting Periods of Life

Life has moments where seconds feel like eternity. You're ready to move forward or even backwards to avoid waiting. Waiting can try the nerves and fry the patience. In fact, the waiting periods of life can be the greatest growth periods.

While seemingly trapped in the waiting periods take each moment and value its existence. These moments are stepping-stones, which move you closer to your dream. The small steps are necessary and essential in paving the path.

The bible tells us to wait on the Lord. Many times in the effort to accomplish our dreams, today you can fail to realize the dream you are looking for is in this moment. Value the steps as much as the perceived destination.

Renewal of the strength is a promise by God if you wait on the Lord. Waiting on the Lord doesn't mean sitting still. Yes, there are times to sit still but waiting is different than standing still. Standing still is a time where your awareness of God will grow. Waiting is a time of renewal in physical, emotional and spiritual power. However, while in the period of waiting continue to do what is in front of you to do. There are many opportunities in front of you to accomplish while you wait on the Lord to accomplish your dream.

The dreams of life are accomplished one-step at a time. If you want to move, mountains bring a shovel. A mountain can be moved one shovel full at a time. In the waiting period bring a shovel and shovel what is in front of you. Each time you fill your shovel with what's in front of you the waiting period or mountain gets a little smaller.

The key to enduring waiting periods is a refined trust in God. God is the author of the waiting periods of life as well as the mountain top experiences in life. Therefore, wait on the lord, the bible says, and you will fly like an eagle and you will walk and never faint, run and not get weary, so wait on the Lord.
