Lamentations

Day 1 | Waiting | Waiting is Emotional | Lamentations 3:22-26

So much of our life is spent waiting. Anything good you have in your life right now is something you probably had to wait for. Waiting on the Lord has been one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life. When waiting is finally resolved into the sweetness of fulfilled promises or the setback of disappointment, we can look back and see the result of our waiting. How we wait matters. What we learn during these seasons cannot be taught through ease and comfort. In the waiting, God is good and He is present.

If you are in a season of waiting, I want to encourage you. You are in a season that will be emotional.

Lamentations 3:22-26 ESV

22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;

    his mercies never come to an end;

23 they are new every morning;

    great is your faithfulness.

24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,

    “therefore I will hope in him.”

25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him,

    to the soul who seeks him.

26 It is good that one should wait quietly

    for the salvation of the Lord.

Romans 12:12 says, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”
