“…but for now, I will wait for You…”

As I came to sit down at the table this morning, I kept hearing this phrase—like it kept interrupting me in what I was journaling and reflecting on…

“…but for now, I will wait for You…”

And I wasn’t really sure where this was going, but I sat with it for a bit, and I asked the Lord what He meant…and more came.

So, I’m not really sure what this is, but perhaps this is for someone in particular this morning…

“…but for now,

I will wait for You

and for what

You are going to do.

And as I wait…

I know

that I am not ‘lagging behind’

because You are doing what You do,

even when there is “nothing I can do“, God.

You are putting things into place

that I cannot see.

You are building, You are positioning me—

even when what appears now

doesn’t seem to many any sense.

Or doesn’t seem to “fit into place.”

In the meantime,

as I wait

I will draw closer to You,

I will discover what is true…

Because I know

that You are near

And I know

that You are here.

And I know

that You are doing

what only You can do

in “this”…

So for now…

I will wait

and I will watch—expectantly, for You.”
