Sunday June 28th, Lamentations 3: I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. Waiting is hard, whether you are a child or an adult. We live in a society with fast food, express lines, 24 hour competing news services fueled with 140 character tweets from half way around the world and I now have 3G cell phone service in Anchorage. Everything is going faster and faster. In the midst of that, God’s word is to wait. Wait, what are you, crazy? If we wait, tomorrows colors and styles can become yesterday’s good will bargains. But then, sometimes we find that it is in the waiting, in the process, in the journey, that we are blessed. Spend some quiet time and wait. Talk to God and wait. Love one another and wait. Time is simply a part of our existence, timelessness is where God exists. Wait, experience the timelessness of God and know you are loved.
