Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

More than they that watch for the morning...

Photograph entitled "Waiting for Morning" by Debora Rorvig

I've been going through a rough place lately. It's 2:03 am. Up... waiting for morning...waiting for answers. Knowing that the answer is as near to me as my own heart. Knowing that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. So I don't despair. I wait...

OUT of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. Lord hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?But there is foregiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

I wait for the Lord,
my soul doth wait,
and in his word do I hope.

My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say more than they that watch for the morning.

Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy and with him is plenteous redemption.And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
                                                                      Psalms 130

WAIT on the Lord:
 be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait I say, on the LORD.
                                                                                              Psalms 27:14

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.
                                                           Isaiah 40:31

Sounds like you know the "drill" well enough...now you are being schooled by the Holy Spirit in the nuances and process and holy intentions of productive waiting.

You will emerge with honor, my friend. I just know you will.

Sending a prayer up and a hug north to you...

Debora said...

Thank you both, Rebecca and Ellen. Needed the prayer and hug, and Rebecca, I've never considered the holy intentions of productive waiting. That's difficult for a 'doer'. But as Jesus has gone before me, I trust that I shall emerge with honor...in him. Appreciate you both!
