“Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:14
These words have been like a beacon of light in a very dark valley for me. For years I’ve been asking God hard questions…questions of when I will be united with like-minded believers, questions of how long I will feel alone, questions of why I feel so much like an outcast, a misfit, a foreigner.
And I hear Him over and over again speaking:
Wait for the Lord. Yes, Lord, I’m waiting.
Be strong and take heart. I’m trying Lord, really, I am!
Be strong and take heart. I’m tired of being strong God.
Take heart and wait for the Lord. I’m tired of waiting God.
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Do you believe this promise? Do you believe my words? God, you know I do.
Then wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
