“Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous. Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.” Psalms 25:3-5 ESV http://bible.com/59/psa.25.3-5.esv
More waiting is in front of me. I am taught through the waiting, through the silence. God’s still, small voice is available to me in these quiet moments. The hum of the frig, the chirp of birds and the plane overhead are either distractions or simply the background music for God’s oratory on my heart. Which it is depends on my receptivity.
I am thankful that when I wait, shame cannot reach me. My poor decisions leading to sin are erased completely in the silence. I breath in God’s rich, refreshing grace and exhale my selfishness, my self centered attitudes.
The sun is warm through the window. It is the loving embrace of God sending me into the day to share His love with others. His way is a path of love. It is the way of justice, mercy and humility. His Truth, Jesus, is my guide and my teacher. Help me to be willing to traverse the rocky with the smooth. Victory through the difficult parts bears whiteness to those I would help of Thy power, Thy love and Thy way of life. May I do your will always.
