Waiting For You

Dear God,

Waiting is not one of my virtues. It is not an easy thing for me, either. I guess that seems especially true when I am waiting for You to answer my prayers. Sometimes I find myself wondering if You have even heard my prayers.

When we were informed last time that DD most likely had scoliosis, we were so worried and afraid it would be painful and hard, and that it would prohibit her from doing the things she loved to do most. We waited for the doctor to give us an answer, and we prayed that we would quickly know her condition. The whole week of waiting for lab results, counting the hours everyday, and waiting for the doctor's diagnosis at the end of that week left us in a difficult, uncertain situation. of course You knew that our DD would be fine, but You reminded us at that time, that our faith must be in You and that You will answer our prayers in Your timing. I pray for that truth to be always in my heart and mind, as I continue to wait for You in all things surrounding my life. Thank You, Father, for the reminder.

But as for me,
I watch in hope for the LORD,
I wait for God my Savior;
my God will hear me.
Micah 7:7
