Wait proceeds change.
Delay heavily breathes in a room of quiet where you sit in anticipation of the next hours in your life.
It colors life in a gray hues.
Wait seems to refuse to bloom.
Conditions Caused By Wait
Winter hanging on blocking the arrival of Spring.
A desert time when the Israelis wondered in circles until the Lord allowed them to take the Promise Land.
The time you anticipate word from a doctor about the condition of a loved one.
Suspended in time by a phone listening for a call about medical tests.
He is a servant that labors in the background.
I know him personally. I try to hurry him, and my faith plummets to my feet.
My hope disappears because he neglects my emotional needs of knowing everything will be okay.
He turns to faith and tells Faith to step in because we’ve entered a season of delay.
I don’t like Wait. Sometimes, I wish he would go jump in a lake.
I want my answers now, yesterday. I wish my problems gone in an instant, blown to smithereens.
How do you wait? He takes the form of a harsh taskmaster.

20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he [is] our help and our shield.
21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
