Waiting Patiently

Not really good at that.  Psalm 37:7 tells me that my assignment is to rest in the Lord and wait patiently…  I am a doer not a waiter…  My response to most challenges is to get up, get busy, and figure out a solution.
You ever have a challenge waiting on God?  Thoughts at DTTB.
That seems to be the polar opposite of what is required.

I am supposed to rest in the sovereign creator of the universe, like He would have it under control.  Then I am to wait for Him, patiently to boot.  Wait for Him who one day is like a 1000 years and a 1000 years like one day… I do not have that kind of time or patience.

But that is the assignment.

Sometimes I don’t even ask.  I just act.

Sometimes it is really hard to trust, rest, and wait on someone I cannot see.  But, based on Hebrews 11:1 – 6, I guess that is what faith is all about.

This Christian life thing is not easy.
