"Wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."
Psalm 27:14

Does anyone else think maybe God put "wait for the Lord" in there twice for a reason?!

I think He knew we might just need it.

I could probably use that written a 100 times in a row.

But then again... it probably wouldn't completely demolish my impatience.

I'd gotten onto BibleGateway today to look up some Scripture references for another blog post on This Next Generation and I nearly laughed out loud when I saw this Scripture smack dab in the middle of the webpage. Sometimes God has a sense of humor and He likes to wave it in front of our eyes. :)

So I'm trying to wait on the Lord. Wait for His perfect timing. Wait for Him to show me what road to take.

"For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 3:14. I can be strong, take heart and wait on the Lord, through Christ who strengthens me.

God gave me that very verse when I was so tired of waiting for Katie. He used it to exhort and comfort me at the same time! Isn't that just like God, just what you need, when you need it! We are so blessed to be called children of God: "How great is the love the father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are." I John 3:1
