I am in one of those moods/seasons of life where I feel but cannot say. It’s the feeling like it is:

“Always winter but never Christmas.”
― C.S. LewisThe Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

There are some seasons of life where waiting will be inevitable. As humans, we are likely always waiting on or for someone or something in our lives. Some of these seasons seem to go on for dreadfully long. It’s like in simple terms, forgetting Christmas will come. But, for Christians we wait in hope, and strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord.

“Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. -Isaiah 40:31, NASB

And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. – Romans 5:3-5, NASB

While I could go on musing about this subject for some time. I think now I will direct you to my friend Anna’s post about this. Seems like we had the same idea today and, I could not have said it better myself. Ring Out Wild Bells.

In college I learned about waiting and hope from some great people of faith at my Church. A story about Chris Tomlin’s Everlasting God really stuck with me in the way it encouraged my pastor and his wife through a time of waiting and moving to build the Church I attended in college. So, listen and remember  strength will rise as we wait upon the LORD. He has a plan, we just might not see it for awhile.
