Joy in the waiting.

Do you like waiting? Maybe it depends on what and how long you have been waiting for? Are there times when you don't mind waiting? I think the part of waiting that can be hard is when we don't know how long we will actually be waiting for! As adults, when we're waiting for Christmas, we know how far away it is, (5 weeks and counting by the way hooray!) However, when kids ask us "when's Santa coming?!" we tell them how many days, and it really doesn't mean anything to them, as they don't understand the concept of time properly yet. And so they wait. And the Christmas tree is their reminder that what they are waiting for IS coming.
And then..... fiiiiiinally the day always arrives. It's Christmas Eve. All of a sudden they forget all the days and weeks of asking "when's it going to be time?" and all they know in that moment is the JOY of their dream coming true.
What are you waiting for? Whatever you are believing for, whether it's finances, family restoration, relationships, healing.. it IS coming. But in the meantime, you don't have to carry the burden of "the wait" yourself. There's someone else who wants to take that load for you. And then He'll give you joy in the waiting. :)
"He will keep you strong to the end... God will do thisFor he is faithful to do what he says!" 
So until then look up.. and take the joy you need!

Be blessed in whatever you are doing today. :)
