Waiting on the Lord

Admittedly, a big weakness in my spiritual life has been waiting in faith. I hate waiting. I get visibly annoyed when the person in front of me in the Starbucks drive-thru takes too long. I get angry when I'm made to wait. I feel a tightness in my chest and my attitude gets sour. It's ugly. 

And it's no different when I'm waiting on the Lord. For some reason I think God should be on my time table, so when He's "late" (in my eyes, because God is never late) I get upset. Really, God? What is taking so long?!

The thing is, there haven't been many instances in my life in which I've had to wait. Until now. It's been a challenge as I have had to face certain situations that are outside of my control and I've had to wait to see what God is doing. I'm learning a lot about how to wait patiently and trust that God is at work. 

This month's CF Coral Gables Women's Gathering will be exploring the issue of waiting. How do we remain faithful as we wait for God to move? Why is God making us wait anyway? What's the purpose behind the waiting? 

If you're in Miami, join us on Saturday at 10am at 7410 Sunset Drive. And in the mean time, meditate on Micah 7:7 - "But as for me, I will look upon the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me."
