Waiting

I got this song off of Jennie's blog: http://abnerandjennie.blogspot.com/
Very simple lyrics, but a reminder for us all. Sometimes when we get impatient, don't you want to scream? I know i do! But God calls us to wait upon Him...and that doesn't mean to just sit and wait...I know if i just sit and wait, i get irritable (and want to scream). There are a lot of things in life that God tells us to wait for..A LOT!! but we need to remember to be patient and continue to serve Him and worship Him while we wait upon the Lord. (I especially enjoy and am challenged by the lyrics that i put in bold)

"WHILE I'M WAITING" JOHN WALLER

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience


While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait


I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You, Lord

Nice, stealing my life-theme... whatever:) Glad you like the song too and were ministered by it, what an awesome reminder to not just be passive but to keep going while we wait. Take care, Alyssa!
