5 I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope. Psalm 130:5
The last weather event began with so many warnings, I almost hoped it would amount to another big nothing. Ahhhh but that was not to be, we got snow! Just enough to be pretty and treacherous. Upon waking this past Monday morning I ran to the window to see the latest masterpiece created by God. I will also admit to looking for a delayed start to the day. Texas driving skills and vehicle gave me pause and moments to pray for wisdom. So, I waited, watched news and waited.
Grateful was I for wisdom of the day’s delay as it permitted a cup of coffee in a house mug rather than the usual travel mug and most importantly, additional time for morning worship. Waiting slowed me down enough to offer longer prayers, read more verses and give a few extra moments of praise. Children enjoy snow days as a break from the scholastic schedule, never taking into consideration that delay will be tacked on to the end of the school year, when the sun shines brightest and days for playing in the sun are longer. Waiting on the Lord is never time wasted, waiting permits His good and perfect work and will do be completed, in His time.
Making His praise glorious!
