The excitement is still abuzz around our house! Yet, the reality of waiting is starting to set in. With the waiting comes a whole load of other emotions. I’ve never claimed to be great at waiting, and this time is no different. As we wait for a phone call, email, or anything from the producer, I find myself trying to guard my heart from sheer disappointment.
I hope for the best, and expect the worst. I dread hearing bad news. The longer the wait, the harder it seems. I know, I know, it’s only been a few days! But here, it seems like it’s been forever! Greg is really keeping himself level headed (as always!) and I’m already thinking of how big a tour bus we can get.
Really though, our expectations are low. We would just love to have a CD so when someone says “Hey, do you have a CD?” we can answer in the affirmative. As many of you will understand though, my mind runs a million miles a minute. I try to keep myself in check, but you see, I’m Greg’s biggest fan. Always will be! I think he’s the best! It’s hard as a wife to shield your husband from what could be a huge disappointment. Of course, I’m really hoping it is the opposite, just trying to be level headed.
For that past 3 days, I have just been praying for God to help me to wait patiently. This single act goes against everything within me. I want answers, and I want them now! I want to know if this is something that God has orchestrated, or if it’s a dead end. And oh! How I pray that the Lord’s hand is in this. I believe it is, and yet, it’s all about waiting. Waiting on the producer, waiting on God.I’m trying to be like David:
“I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.” Psalm 40.1
I’m trying to wait patiently, and really, there is nothing else to do. Nothing else to be done. It’s a ‘hurry up and wait’ situation. And so, I pray, and pray some more. I’m also realizing how much this is applicable to rest of my life, and not just this contained circumstance. Of course there are times when action is required, but when we act upon what the Lord impresses on us, sometimes all that’s left is to wait. I certainly don’t want to go where the Lord doesn’t want me. Only time will tell…
So today, wherever you are, whatever your situation, let’s join together and wait patiently on the Lord. Together.
I’d love to hear if you also are in a time of waiting. It’s so nice to know that you are not alone!
I would love to be friends!
