Wait and See

The first time I heard this song, I cried. I had just been in the midst of major frustration with my son. I wondered if he was going to "turn out" OK. I was tired of the struggle, and quite ready to quit.
Then I heard these lyrics and it was as if a boost of hope shot through my veins. God reminded me that He is at work, and I need to wait and see.
Since my first exposure to this song, it has played again at the most wonderful times. Always to encourage me with my boys. And now when I hear it I thank God for everything He knows regarding my children which I do not. I remember, I cannot expect them to be perfect. Lord, You aren't finished yet!


And the winners from my birthday giveaway are Ronel, Shane, and Shawna. Thanks - everyone - for the kind words and Happy Birthday wishes. I truly had a great day!

Karen,

You have no idea how very much the Lord used this in my life this morning. I am in one of those seasons where I am questioning a lot of the things I am doing. The reminder that He is still there and is still working is so timely.

Then I look on your sidebar and see the "Verse of the Day" is Psalm 118: 6 that reminds me that the Lord is with me and I am again encouraged.

Thanks for your faithfulness, friend. God used you this morning to remind me of His love for me.

What a boost of hope in many ways. I have had much frustration with my son and the decisions he has made.
Thanks for the reminder that he is not finished with him or any of us yet. We just need to wait and see where he leads.
I am thankful that God is there with us in the waiting.

"...He is at work, I have to wait and see..." Indeed.

I relate, as a mother and as a human being in general.
