My Soul Waits for the Lord

Psalm 130:6-7
My soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
O Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with Him is full redemption.

Psalm 119:166-167
I am waiting for You to save me, Lord.
I will obey Your commands.
I obey Your rules,
and I love them very much.

Psalm 123:1-2 (the message)
I look to You, heaven-dwelling God, look up to You for help.
Like servants, alert to their master's commands,
like a maiden attending her lady,
We're watching and waiting, holding our breath,
awaiting Your word of mercy.

Psalm 130:5
I wait for the Lord to help me,
and I trust His word.

Waiting is abiding!
"Only in seeking first the kingdom of God and abiding in Him can I have the loveliness of a gentle and quiet spirit." - Cynthia Heald

Sometimes waiting is hard.  But we must.  He is so worth it!!  And from someone who has waited for Him time and again - He never makes you wait too long.  He is always there in time.  Trust Him!!! He will come.  In fact, He is waiting for you as well!  He is waiting to be gracious and extend His mercy towards you!!  What a thought, the God of the universe is waiting for me.

Isaiah 30:18

Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
Blessed are all those who wait for Him.

He has more patience than we do.
