OK girls...it is that time again! I have to confess...I have struggled greatly picking out my verse this month. I had narrowed it down to four but could not decide and then when I went to Beth Moore's blog to draw straws for which one to post...she had this one and I felt this was a good choice! So I still have my four on stand by for future use...lol
Ps 27:14 ” Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord”. (NIV)
Beth used a different version in which "wait" was translated "rely". I liked it too, but when I saw the NIV translation...it just stuck with me. Because I struggle with the whole "wait" concept. Sometimes I forget to wait on the Lord for instruction and things go incredibly WRONG! And then sometimes I wait for the Lord but don't do anything while I am waiting and things go incredibly WRONG. I need the balance...wait for the Lord but continue to seek Him and pray for direction while I "wait"! In most places the word "wait" is used in the Bible it is an action verb...meaning doing something while you "wait"! So y'all pray I can "actively wait" on the Lord and bring Him glory.
Let's hear your verses! Bless someone this week!
PS - I also want to fess up that I am still working on last time's verse. It was a little harder for me...so I don't have it perfect yet. Let that encourage you...keep trying and don't give up. You will never ever waste a minute on memorizing God's Word. Just the shear discipline of trying to memorize it allows you to meditate on it...which absolutely does a heart good! Amen? Love you ladies!
