I have some wonderful characteristics, some that I am proud to have be a part of who I am. Unfortunately more often than not, in the past, waiting (or patience) was not a strong suit for me. Funny how God can change that in a life situation. Growing up I was a christian and I had faith but how strong was that faith? Looking back I realized just how little faith and patience I had. My how that changed in October 2010. My life was going just as I hoped it would. My family and I moved back to my home state of Florida, we bought our first house, and literally a week after signing the papers my husband lost his job. If ever there was a time of patience being a virtue for me this surely wasn’t going to be it…or was it?
As I sat stunned (and worried) it was in this moment God spoke to my heart, in such a loving way, to trust and wait on him. Trusting and waiting when you have no income with bills to pay isn’t the easiest thing but as I look back I see it really was. I was at a point in my life that was so out of my control I had no choice but to trust God completely. It was during that time I was waiting on Him and the promises he spoke to me, my faith was taken to a new level. So many things during that time got me through what was the biggest faith test of my adult life. I constantly spent time with God, I had music on and worshipped him throughout the day, I renewed my faith and waited on Him. Was it easy? No! There were times I wanted to just say “I can’t do this anymore” but He would comfort me and gently remind me to wait for and trust Him. So I did and he worked everything out so perfectly and in such a way there would never be a question of His faithfulness to me.
Have things been easy since then? Some days yes, some days no but I am always gently reminded of his faithfulness. There is a song titled “Waiting Here for You” and my how it is song that speaks right to my soul. It talks about faith moving mountains, coming to Him with expectations, praising Him and simply waiting on Him. It’s such a powerful song and one I play when I have moments of “wanting it now”. Waiting Here for You is part of Christy Nockels new album “Into The Glorious” which is out today. Over the next week I am really going to be soaking up the other songs on the album and give you a rundown of my experience with it as well as share a video from Christy. I have a feeling this cd will be played in my house on a regular basis if this song is any indication of how much I will enjoy it.
