I can’t thank everyone enough for the outpouring of support I received after my Waiting For Baby post. It is incredibly scary to post something that personal and the response was so sweet and humbling so thank you, thank you. I feel so loved knowing that we have so many friends praying for us and supporting us in the wait.
“I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:13-14)
The truth is that most of us are in the midst of waiting for something in life. Whether it’s a baby, a husband, a change, a good day, a better job, we’re all waiting and hoping for something to change. I love this verse because the first part contains a promise: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. That means we don’t have to be spending our days in heaven before we get to see our prayers answered with good things. God wants to give us good things NOW. I’m so thankful for that.
The second part of the verse is the challenge. Knowing that we can confidently rest in the promise that we will see the goodness of the Lord, we now just need to WAIT, BE STRONG, TAKE HEART and WAIT. That can be hard, right? Especially when we’re told twice to wait…because waiting is inevitable. But I find that the more I remind myself of God’s faithfulness — as I look back at all the ways He’s taken care of me — the easier it is to wait and be strong and take heart.
So today I want to offer these sweet wallpapers for your computers and iphones so that we can all be reminded together that God is faithful and we can trust in Him; we need only to be strong, take heart and wait.
