Shining While We Wait!

22 01 2016

2016 calendarWe began this series with a prophetic word for 2016 and the truth that God intends to work in and through each of us in 2016, so the light of the Lord to shine! Today we explore what it means to shine while you wait!


“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Waiting is the hardest part, but it is well worth it.

Psalms 27:14


These words of Psalms 27, go deep within us as we struggle to wait for our assignments in 2016 to begin. For some it is because of illness, like a good friend I know, things aren’t going well for her. She has been ill and it has affected her life in many ways. Yet she is struggling to be strong, she is struggling to wait for the Lord to break through, she knows first hand that waiting is the hardest part, maybe you do too.


I am waiting for the birth of a grandchild, there is nothing I can do, I pray, I wait, I support and I love. Those are the same things I do as I walk with my friend. Whether it is looking from the outside as with my grandchild or if you are the one who is in the midst of the struggle like my friend, things are happening as you wait, you are becoming stronger, your will to wait for something to happen is where your faith shines through and your will becomes solid as a rock.

I have a beautiful picture of Yeshua kneeling on a rock in the garden of Gethsemane where he sweated blood and his disciples fell asleep three times. This picture always comforts me because it reminds me of the sacredness of our struggle to wait and how even in that moment his faith shined brightly for us to see.


Know waiting is an important part of life, and as scripture tells us, it is well worth it!
