I've made a choice.......while waiting

Well friends it's been a while, a long while since I have been here.

I am happy to stop by and see everyone still pressing on. Unfortunately I am still computerless at this point, but in the face of it all and in the midst of my disappointment at not being able to replace or repair my laptop, I have made a choice........

I have decided that I will not sit around hoping and waiting for God to bless me with a new computer, instead....

I have made a choice, like David, that I will wait patiently on the Lord, and,while I am waiting I will relentlessly pursue Him in communion.

I have made a choice , while waiting, to praise my Lord.
I have made a choice, while waiting, to seek the Lord with my whole heart.
I have made a choice, while waiting, to recount His laws with my lips.
I will, while waiting, rejoice in following His statutes.
I will, while waiting, delight in His decrees.
I have made a choice, while waiting, not to neglect His word.

I realise that waiting on God is not easy, but I don't have to sit idly by thinking this could be the day or this could be the week.

As I wait on Him, He promises to renew my strength so that I could mount up with wings as eagles.

David said in Psalm 40:1 "I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry.

He is faithful. Be encourage today to wait patiently on the Lord for whatever you need. He will turn to you for He hears the cry of your heart.

Blessings,
Vickie

Vickie, I was elated to see your comment as I keep hoping and praying you will soon be back around:) We have to wait on the Lord because there is no other choice, is there? It's my daily plan. Take care and check in now and then!

THough you haven't shared, I can sense that there are many new things that God has put in your heart!

Vickie,

I know God will bless your choice to wait... with patience... with expectation... with a heart of peace. You are a testimony, and I miss seeing you around here. I too will wait, until such a time as He allows you to be here more often! I have left you a little something at the Glass House Ministries blog, under the "We Have a Winner" post.

God bless,
Cheri

How awesome Vickie! I wish I would've handled myself this way when I was without a computer. I did for awhile and then took things into my own messy hands. Wasn't pretty, but thank God He is a forgiving God.
Keep waiting my friend...you know He is worth it.
