Good-Will bargains

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 4G cell phone service giving way to who knows what on the horizon.  Everything is going faster and faster and we all dream of sitting in a Ferrari while stuck in traffic.   In the midst of that, God’s word calls us 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.  Sometimes sitting at that stop sign just gives us enough time to see the sky, the trees and the people sitting in the other cars.  Spend some quiet time and wait today.  Talk to God and wait.  Enjoy the beauty of creations 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.
