We wait. We wait in grocery lines and at the bank. We wait for vacations and new jobs. We wait for opportunity, we wait for healing. We spend a good portion of our life in the in-between times, so what should we do with all that waiting? That is what this week’s song, “While I’m Waiting” by John Waller and our Scripture emphasis in Psalm 40 both talk about.
Perhaps God is developing something in you in the wait that will be necessary in the arrival.
