While I Wait....

I've never been accused of doing it well.
In fact, I know of very few that could accurately accept that accusation. Its not in our nature to be patient. But it seems that our lives have been nestled deep within a season of waiting. 
Waiting on decisions to be made on our behalf....
waiting to make decisions on behalf of our household...
waiting to be free from the financial struggle we've walked through...
waiting for miracles for those we love and pray diligently for...
waiting for answers.
Our worship leader at the church we've been involved with for about a year and a half now is an awesome songwriter. He's written so many powerful songs, some of which are sung all over the world. (Pretty cool in my opinion!!) This week he is hosting a CD release party that we are so excited to attend. As we were all buzzing about the release, we were looking at a series of videos/stories on the website that you can watch here: Let Hope In
and something Taylor (his wife) said just really hit home.
She said that God spoke to her and told her all she was responsible for was letting hope in. She made the choice to keep hoping in her Savior who wants the best for her...and who loves her. 
Wow. So powerful.
Not hoping in the circumstances or even in anticipation of a desired outcome.
Not hoping that we are correct in what we think God has for us. 
No. Just hoping in the One who created us. The One who created hope to begin with. 
So as we watch each day pass... as we wait for answers, outcomes, babies, money, or whatever else you might fill in that blank...
I pray that along with me you can also learn to let hope in.
So many things I wait for right now I really can't even guess how they will work out. God may orchestrate something beyond my comprehension at this time. Regardless of what the final 
outcome looks like, I will put my protective wall down and there I will see hope flooding in.

"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:18
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1
