Wait...

Here are a few verses I am reading, reciting, and believing...

"Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!"~Psalm 27:14

"For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end."~Hebrews 3:14

"Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our sheild."~Psalm 33:20

"My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him."~Psalm 62:5

"Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."~Isaiah 40:31

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful."~Hebrews 10:23

"I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope."~Psalm 130:5

"The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing."~Psalm 145:15-16

I have this last verse posted in my cabinet door at work so I can read it each and every day...

"For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."~Habakkuk 2:3

I have that Habakkuk verse in my office too. My version reads: "But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision WILL be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day."
Looking back at our journey to a family, God ordained each and every timed step perfectly. If anything had occurred even a few weeks or days differently, we would be in a different boat. We would likely not have our 2 year old son, or be pregnant with our second. God has a perfect plan for you. The hardest part is allowing Him to give it to us in His perfect timing.
