…How’s the wait?
…”Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.” Ps116:15
…It seems that we are all waiting for something or someday when we can say, “I’ve arrived. This is it. I am done.” We are not alone. The Lord is waiting, too. The Lord awaits the arrival, in heaven, of those who are His. He is looking forward to welcoming us home. Waiting is part of God’s plan. It is how value is established. Our willingness to wait for something determines the value we place on it. For those who follow Jesus, the day will come when the wait will be over and what we value most will have arrived. We will pass from the life of faith to the life of sight. All will be transparent between us and Jesus. There will be no unanswered questions. We will know that we have arrived. We can say, “This is it. This is where my soul has longed to be.” In the midst of today’s challenges, thank God that, someday, you will be with Him forever. He can hardly wait!
