While we wait....

I'm totally borrowing this post from a dear friend, Amy, who blogs over at Building the Blocks. I met Amy through Lifesong and have grown to LOVE this dear woman and her family! Turns out that Amy grew up in the small little village that we now live in... crazy, huh?!?!?

Here's what Amy writes today -

"While we wait for the perfect timing...

they hope they can wait another day.


While we wait for more money...

they wait with nothing.

While we wait for a bigger home with enough room...

they wait for room in our hearts.

While we wait for others approval...

they wait with any dignity they can find.



While we wait for the ideal child....

they wait knowing they are not.

While we wait trying to decide if we can manage another...

they wait trying to manage on their own.



While we wait to see how much we have to give to them...

They are waiting to give us even more.

While we wait for God to provide...

He waits for us to take the first step so He can.

We must NEVER use 'waiting to hear from Him' as an excuse for not doing what He has ALREADY commanded in the bible for us to do... proclaim the truth, care for orphans, serve others, be His hands of justice for the poor, and show compassion.

So, what are you waiting for??" - Amy Block, Building the Blocks---check it out here
