Are you waiting?

Many times in our lives we'll find ourselves waiting. It could be for tests results ... it could be for a child who's gone astray ... perhaps a job ... a spouse ... and for many who have joined us on this journey it is a season of waiting on your child to join your family. Everyone reacts to waiting in different ways. I find great comfort in Isaiah 40:31 during seasons of waiting.

Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:31

Our family is in a season of waiting. There is a tendency to worry, become weary, and wrestle with all the unknowns. But what a comfort it is to know that when we wait for the Lord, we'll gain NEW strength.

We hope that no matter what season of life you are in .... that you might find strength as well in your "waiting".
