Waiting for You

Waiting for You

By Sindy Nagel

From the heart of God:

 

I sat here through the morning

At our normal meeting place

I watched with anticipation

But I never saw your face

 

I had many things to tell you

To help you through your day

But you didn’t have time to listen

Your ears weren’t turned my way

 

Then morning turned to noon time

And I still no word from you

I watched as you set your hands

To accomplish your “To Do”

 

Your busy schedule didn’t allow

For the plans I’d made for you

The grandfather in the corner

Chimed one, and then, chimed two

 

Your day was now half over

Not one thought had turned my way

Would you remember Me at all

As you hurried through your day?

 

The bus pulled up out in the street

The kids rushed in the door

No quiet time now in the house

As the clock sang out, “It’s four”

 

Soon your husband will be home from work

Fast food for dinner’s the plan

As you head off to sports practice

Piling the kids in your mini van

 

I thought maybe you’d talk to me

While you waited at the field

But the phone came out, your fingers flew

It’s that social media appeal

 

Back home, it’s eight and time to help

With homework at the table

I know you’d spend some time with Me

If only you were able

 

I hoped we’d have some time alone

As the clock rang the number ten

But exhausted from your busy day

You fell right into bed

 

Your eyelids were very heavy

And you drifted off to sleep

Straight into la la dreamland

No time for counting sheep

 

Tomorrow is another day

I’ll be in our usual place

Do you think you’ll make time for me?

Will I see your beautiful face?

 

No matter where you are in life

No matter what you do

I’m always just a whisper away

I am waiting here for you

 

The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears, and I have not been rebellious; I have not drawn back. (Isaiah 50:4-5)

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:29-31)

Give the Lord some time today to instruct you, strengthen you, and empower you to soar on wings like an eagle and not grow weary. Listen like one being taught. He is waiting for you.

Are You Cold? Pour a Cup of Hot Coffee. He’s Waiting for You!

As the weather starts turning cold again, I am reminded that He warms our souls from within. Here is my blog post from 2/27/15:

Good morning, Lord

Today the bitter cold is the first thing on my mind. It is -7 degrees here and the sun is making its ascent. What’s it like where you are?

Funny girl, you know it’s heavenly where I am. There is no need for the sun here. My brilliance illuminates everything. A crystal clear river of living water flows through the streets made of pure gold. The pearly gates remain open at all times. There is no temple, for I and the Lamb are its temple. There are no tears, or mourning, or death. Only joy and laughter fill the air. I have prepared a place for you. You will spend eternity here with me. When you ponder the confines of earth, dream of this place I have described for you. This is your eternal home. My radiance will bring warmth to your heart. Do not forget, I am with you, even now. It may be cold outside where you are, but my Spirit warms your soul within. Delight in the coziness of a close relationship with me. Soon the ice and cold will melt away, and only the warmth of the Son will remain. Pour a cup of hot coffee, and enjoy a conversation with Me. I’ll be waiting for you.


 

Patience is a Virtue

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)

My child, your heart is in My hands. I hold you close to Me. I know your desires; your longings are pure and holy. I will give you all that you ask for, in due time. Wait for Me. Good things come to those who wait expectantly for the Lord. You have heard Me say, “Ask for anything in My name and you will receive it, and your joy will be complete” (John 16:24). When you ask in My name, you will receive what you ask for. In the waiting, let your heart overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is patience. Let your countenance be full of joy as you wait upon the Lord. You will receive what you ask for in My perfect timing.

I Will Direct Your Paths

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Daughter, you are excited to work on your project and get it done. I understand that. But do not run ahead of me. Do not leave me in the dust. Rather, let me lead. Let me guide and direct you. Give me your time and attention. Listen to me—let me speak. I will bring about the end result when the timing is right. I love you, and I want the best for you. This cannot happen in a whirlwind for you. It has to come about slowly in order for you to receive the support you need for this project. Follow my time frame and be patient. We will have success when I am ready to bring it. There is much more to be done in the process of waiting. Seek me for your direction and your time management. I will help you balance it all and give you joy in your work. I will direct your paths.
