Active Waiting

We spend so much time waiting for the next big thing. We have completed all of the tasks we feel have been set before us, so it is time to sit down and wait. Wait, wait, wait. Did we miss out on what is next? Were we too busy in our waiting to see where we should have been?

We have this zeal to work for the Lord, but sometimes in that excitement, we hurry through to check this off of our lists. We feel accomplished when we complete tasks. But that is not what God wants for us. He wants us to be present in our circumstances. To really pay attention and learn through our experiences.

We cannot rush through our work for the Lord. We need to live fully through these experiences. And when we finish one task, that does not mean that our work for the Lord is done. There is no time to sit down and wait. We need to be active in our waiting.

There is an entire world that is ready to hear about the love of Jesus. They are waiting for someone like you to tell them. Even when you do not know which way your road will turn next, you can still be working for the Lord. You can still be spreading the love of Jesus.

Maybe God has not told what the next big thing is for you. Maybe you are just finishing a project. Maybe you are taking a break.

No matter where you are in life, you can be active for the Lord. The world is waiting.
