Lord, Teach Me to Wait
Power in prayer One of my favorite Scriptures is Isaiah 40:31: "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" (KJV).

Years ago those words were put to music, and I sang them and taught them to my children. The song added the phrase, "Teach me, Lord. Teach me, Lord, to wait." I loved that passage, and I loved that song. I sang it all the time.

But I didn't think too much about what I was asking. Did I really want Him to teach me to wait?

I don't know about you, but I don't like waiting. It seems like such a waste of time. I could be doing so much with the time I spend waiting! However, our heavenly Father knows there is a value in our learning to wait on Him, so He allows us to be placed in situations where we have no choice but to wait.

I remember the days when we had to wait for dinner to be ready. My mother would start cooking early in the afternoon. She made everything from scratch, and it took time to chop, cook, simmer and serve. She was a fabulous cook, so the end result was fantastic.

We can't match the result of that effort today. We may try to duplicate it by popping food in the microwave or substituting one ingredient for another. We think we'll arrive at the same end-but we don't. Hurrying the process by taking shortcuts just doesn't produce the same result. Some things just simply take time.

Waiting, however, is never easy. read more
