Twittling My Thumbs and Waiting

Would you like to know where I am right now?

I am waiting. Waiting to hear from the Lord. I pray and I pray and I pray... and you wanna know what I hear? Wait. And do you want to know what I am learning while I wait? Patience in His perfect peace... knowing that He knows the perfect timing and learning from His word that His ways are not my ways.

But, while I am having to wait... He is loving me deeply and bringing me His overwhelming presence that He has got this... He tells me I am not doing this alone, so I wait.

You might be wondering what I am waiting for... I am waiting for Him to speak to me the words I will share with the kids and women He will bring to us in India.

Don't get me wrong I have an idea, but for some reason I can't get it all together. It all seems so clumpy and not flowy... like a conversation would go. Does that make sense?

We have a very busy next couple of weeks... family vacation to Disney World, back-to-school preparation, and then the girls are back in school. I believe after all this happens things will become more clear to me. I hope any ways...

But for now I wait.

I also am writing this post on waiting, because I know a lot of other people... friends, who are waiting. Waiting for medical answers. Waiting for adoption answers. Waiting on Life. Waiting is not easy or fun, but if we completely share our hearts with Him and hear nothing but wait... then wait, because He has something for you. It may not look like what you have envisioned, but it will be way better His way. I know I know... easier said than done.

Find the beauty in today. Beauty is there through the pain, through the uncertainty, through the unknown...

"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
    for the Lord has anointed me
    to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
    and to proclaim that captives will be released
    and prisoners will be freed.
He has sent me to tell those who mourn
    that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,
    and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.
To all who mourn in Israel,
    he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
    festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
    that the Lord has planted for his own glory.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins,
    repairing cities destroyed long ago.
They will revive them,
    though they have been deserted for many generations.
Foreigners will be your servants.
    They will feed your flocks
and plow your fields
    and tend your vineyards.
You will be called priests of the Lord,
    ministers of our God.
You will feed on the treasures of the nations
    and boast in their riches.
Instead of shame and dishonor,
    you will enjoy a double share of honor.
You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.
“For I, the Lord, love justice.
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
I will faithfully reward my people for their suffering
    and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be recognized
    and honored among the nations.
Everyone will realize that they are a people
    the Lord has blessed.”
I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God!
    For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation
    and draped me in a robe of righteousness.
I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding
    or a bride with her jewels.
The Sovereign Lord will show his justice to the nations of the world.
    Everyone will praise him!
His righteousness will be like a garden in early spring,
    with plants springing up everywhere.
