Today in The Quiet Place, Nancy DeMoss talks about waiting. (Isaiah 64:4) Waiting means to tarry, to long, to cling or adhere to. God promises to “meet” with those who wait for Him in this way, those who attentively, expectantly incline their hearts toward Him. A Revival is an encounter with God. It begins when God responds to those whose hearts are truly waiting for Him.
Today I am waiting. We have a doctor’s appointment for Chuck giving results of tests he had a few weeks ago. I am praying for healing but sometimes God allows things so that it gets our attention or someone else’s attention. So today I am waiting and I am watching.
Yesterday we had the memorial for my brother. I prayed for God to work. I observed. The message Pastor Mark gave was perfect. “The thing that is done at the last moment of life does not necessarily reflect the person’s heart.” I saw effort made by my nephew to drive 3 hours to be with family. I saw another cousin come to be there. Hugs were given. Tears came. Kind words were spoken. Connections were made that have been absent. And yes reconciliation happened. God was all over. I am grateful. My prayer is that it brought some peace to those that came.
