I am taking a Beth Moore Bible Study this summer with a friend. I was very hesitant because I'm used to lots of homework with my Precepts. This is just fill-in-the-blank stuff so how can you really learn anything? HA!

I came straight home tonight and had to write this stuff down. Not only for me, but for two of my very close friends who need to hear it too. Oh, and me. Did I mention I need this?

Wanna know why my house hasn't sold? Because God.

That's it. For some reason, the timing ain't right. No, I don't know when it will sell or why it hasn't, because it's gosh darn cute. But it hasn't. Either the timing ain't right. Or it's time to WAIT.

Waiting sucks. And you'd think I'd be good at it by now. For God's sake, I'm 31 and 1/2 and still single. I've been waiting.

Maybe it hasn't sold because the timing isn't right for someone else. Maybe Mr. Right isn't totally together yet. Maybe I could what if all night.

I can stand around in my 'paralysis of analysis' and try to figure God out. Or not even that, just His plan for my life. Or maybe I just let it go and move on.

And you know that verse, Isa 40:31? Yea, the one we sang about in High School Church Choir? And the one playing? The one about eagles and waiting on Him? I really don't believe it. And I sure am NOT 'renewing my strength.' I'm tired. Wanna know why? Because I'm waiting on that wedding day, worrying if I'll be 40 and still single. I'm waiting and worrying about the event that I THINK will answer all of my problems. I'm NOT waiting on the LORD. As soon as I stop waiting for the event to come and start waiting on the LORD then my strength will be renewed.

So this is my prayer. That you stop waiting for your event. For your wedding. For your baby. And you start, with me, waiting on the LORD.

Because in the meantime, that's GOD-TIME.

Habakkuk 2:3b
Though it linger, wait on it;
it will certainly come and will not delay

And this fill-in-the-blank Bible Study? Whipped me upside the head tonight.

Thanks Beth
