Worth in Waiting

by | Nov 15, 2014 | Sabbath


“Even as the sunshine enters with its light and warmth, with its beauty and blessing, into every little blade of grass that rises upward out of the cold earth, so the Everlasting  God meets, in the greatness and the tenderness of His love, each waiting child, to shine in his heart ‘the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.’ Read these words again, until your heart learns to know what God waits to do to you.”

~Andrew Murray, Waiting on God

May we all be light catchers, hungry for Light to rise and break through the darkness. Wherever you find yourself during Sabbath, “do believe that in waiting on God, His greatness and your littleness suit and meet each other most wonderfully.” There is worth to the weariness in your waiting.

Happy Sabbath Friends!

    “There is worth to the weariness of waiting” you say. I say, “Amen and Hallelujah!” I see great worth in this season of your waiting, Shelly, as you have shared your faith walk on an uncertain path. Your God-given wisdom has also been evident, and surely ministers to every person who reads your posts. Thank you for the encouragement that God never wastes time, that there is purpose even in waiting.
