The Waiting Place

The Waiting Place

Feels like a total

Waste. Of. Time.

Wait, wait, wait

That’s all you’ll ever do there

Is wait!

THE WAITING PLACE

One of my favourite books is ‘Oh the places you’ll go!’ by Dr Seuss.

I love it because it goes through all the places

You’ll have to go before you have your mountain top experience

But there’s one part

Which gives great insight into the not – so – great days of heading towards your dream

You can get so confused that you’ll start to race

Down long wiggled roads at a break – necking pace

And grind on for mile across weirdish wild space

Headed, I fear, toward a most useless place

The waiting place

Dr Seuss calls the waiting place

Useless

And while your waiting for your dream to happen, it can feel that way

Every step towards your dream can feel like

Your walking in thick custard with over –sized gumboots on.

So, you sit and you wait…

…and you feel useless

But that’s not what the Bible teaches us

Isaiah 40:31 says: ‘But those who wait upon God get fresh strength, they spread their wings and soar like eagles, they run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind. (The Message Bible)

Waiting on God gives you strength for the journey ahead

Not your strength

His strength

And when your powered up with God’s strength you are going to

Spread your wings

Soar like an eagle

Run and not get tired

Walk and not lag behind

Say what?!?

You mean if I wait on God I get to do all those things?

Fo ’real my friend!

God makes you wait on Him

Because He knows you can’t make it to the finish line without His strength.

He’s got your back!

James 1:4 says, ‘But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.’ (NKJV)

Hear that?

Let patience do its thing and you’ll lack nothing.

To wait is to be patient.

It actually says in the passage before James 1:4, ‘that faith produces patience’

You may be sitting here reading this

Dipping that soggy biscuit back into your freshly – brewed cup of disappointment, thinking

“But I want my dream to happen now, I don’t want to wait!”

I know

I’m totally with you

God seems to have a ‘forever o’ clock’ on His kitchen wall.

It’s a tough gig this dream business.

But through the waiting

He will re -new your energy

God can give you more clarification of where your next step should be

If you go to the waiting place

Because your going to need the strength for when the incline starts to gets steep

As you climb the mountain

Trust me, you’ll start to enjoy waiting on God!

And will you succeed?

Yes! You will, indeed!
