While You're Waiting

Waiting.  Waiting in line at an amusement park.  Waiting for the sun to come out.  Waiting for your food to arrive at a restaurant.  Throughout our everyday lives, we are waiting.  However, sometimes we are waiting for things in life that are far more significant.  Things that have much greater importance in our priorities.  We feel as though we are in a spot in which life is on hold.  Our patience begins to wither.  Yet, we have no choice but to wait. So we wait.  We feel as though life begins once what we are waiting for is acquired.  Living as though that one thing is the beginning of the rest of our life.  This can lead to a miserable state of being.  God can use you NOW, right where you are.  Life starts TODAY.  Don't wait for something spectacular.  For your big break.  For your dream to come true.  Make your life spectacular right where you are.  Use your everyday routine as an opportunity to reach out to others.  Live for the Lord, and He will bless you.  It may not be on your terms or timing, but eventually He will come through. 

Psalm 37: 3-4 says, "Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.  Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."  I love this verse.  If you live each day for God...If you trust in Him and His divine plan...If you reach out in love and avoid focusing on yourself, God will give you your heart's desire.

Watch this.  Awesome song. :)
