The present world culture of “I want it, and I want it now,” often seeps into our spiritual relationship with the Lord. However, it is in the waiting that the melody of life’s song is written – like a pause in a musical scale.
Waiting…has need of patience. Waiting…restricts movement. Waiting…is akin to the sound of the last note played fading away into silence. When at last the pause releases its final effect, the repetitious scale takes on a melodic form.
Lord, let the pauses in my life perfect the melody you’ have written for me. A refrain filled with joy and hope to share with those I meet on my destiny journey. For when the wait is over, I will walk, run and yes, soar higher and farther than I ever thought possible.
