Manager’s Memo 2-6-23
Waiting on God is hard. We struggle with waiting when we stop believing God has our best in mind. Years ago, my job was traveling around North Texas collecting money for the blind to have Christian materials. After being rejected at a business, I was super discouraged and crying in my car as I drove to the next place. On that drive, I randomly got a text from my brother Ryan, who I hadn’t heard from in over 3 months and NEVER randomly about God, sent me this Bible verse out of the blue from Psalms 37 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart; and wait for the Lord. I KNEW 100% this was God encouraging me and every time I read that verse I remember that experience. Kinda like you and a song on this station. Waiting on God can be one of the most painful experiences in life. But one way God teaches us to trust Him… is by asking us to wait. Something is actually happening while nothing is happening. That miserable, uncomfortable, sometimes painful state of silence is one of God’s most powerful tools to set us free. Much of our anxiety in waiting is because we forget that “God is able to make all grace abound to you” (2 Corinthians 9:8). Something actually happens while nothing is happening. God uses waiting to change us.
