Ever have a day when all you want to do is stop what you're doing, and yell, 'Is anyone listening to me?'

Or more specifically, look at someone and yell, 'Are YOU even listening? Have you heard ANYTHING I have said?'

What about a month? Or a handful of months?

Oi vey.

That is how I feel tonight.
Ever want to stop yelling, and just quit?
Walk away, and say, 'I can't do this anymore'?


My flesh says 'GO', and my Spirit says, 'Stay. Wait. Be patient'.

Oh, how I would listen to my flesh, but the Lord cautions me to wait.

I got a Twitter from 'The Ramp' the other day.
It holds much truth.

'We must understand that waiting is not waste. More can happen in a moment of God's presence than in a lifetime of activity'.

It's true....and I need to hold onto that truth.

Isaiah 30:18-21
18 So the Lord must wait for you to come to him

so he can show you his love and compassion.
For the Lord is a faithful God.
Blessed are those who wait for his help.
19 O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious if you ask for help.
He will surely respond to the sound of your cries.
20 Though the Lord gave you adversity for food
and suffering for drink,
he will still be with you to teach you.
You will see your teacher with your own eyes.
21 Your own ears will hear him.
Right behind you a voice will say,
“This is the way you should go,”
whether to the right or to the left.
