The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
This song has been playing in my head today. It’s music for the hurting yet hopeful. An anthem for the waiting.
If that sounds like you, then you’re in good company. The Bible is full of stories of people who found themselves in that same scary place, straining their eyes in the pitch black, searching for God in the silence.
You can read the accounts of Noah and Moses and David and Job, who could be the poster boy of waiting, right on through to John the Baptist and Jesus himself.
And, at the end of the day, you’ll find a common theme. God is busy, even while we wait, working all things for our good. Because He is good.
Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
I hope you’ll be blessed as you listen to this song, While I’m Waiting by John Waller.
You might also be encouraged by this powerful interview of John Waller talking about the writing of that song and his deliverance from depression.
