The Thing About Waiting On The Lord...

What if... What if?... What if waiting on the Lord is not some grand display of patient anticipation of a greater future, but a walk. Just a walk... With God, where we are willing to go at His pace... Stopping to admire, smell, or wonder at the things He created... A walk where He gently pulls us by the hand to lead us where He wants to go..., a walk where we are willing to go slow in order to enjoy and delight in the things that He enjoys and delights in... not a walk where we are bruised from clearing the path ourselves because we are so certain and in a hurry... Not a walk where we begrudgingly beckon Him to keep up!... and not a walk where we are too many paces ahead to even look back to see Him picking a dandelion, blowing the pedals, and marveling at the way they float through the air before He changes directions, without our hand to hold, and we miss it...
