Waiting – Dec 14

Sunday, December 14 – Third Sunday of Advent

“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.” Jeremiah 29:11-14

This is a passage that has always given me hope whenever I am waiting for the future to unfold. I find great comfort in being assured that God has a plan and that this plan is good. No matter how far I may seem to be from God due to what happens in life, I have hope.

“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 faint.” Isaiah 40:31

This tells me that by having everlasting hope and faith in the Lord “Good things will come.” I love the imagery of soaring like eagles

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

This verse makes me realize that we have to trust God and put our faith in him while we wait. It is God’s timing and not our timing. Waiting can be difficult but he has a plan for our lives and we need to trust.
