“Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”

Waiting......it's something that's hard. It's something I'm not good at. It's a necessary part of life, and yet one of the hardest to accept.

It's so tied into contentment, another weak spot of mine. 

I want to be married....
I want to move out of Phoenix.....
I wish I was shorter.....
I wish bad things didn't happen.....
I get discontent with my discontent.

And then I remember verses like these....

"Be still, and know that I am
 God" Ps. 46:10

"I am the Lord, and there is no other;There is no God besides Me." Is. 45:5

"The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you." Jer. 31:3

 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matt. 6:31-34

After reading those, the waiting, and the worry, and the discontent always get slapped in the face, and my priorities are set straight again. 

So thankful for God's Word and the comfort, conviction, and encouragement that it brings!!!!!

Goodnight, my dear friends xoxo


  1. That's such a beautiful reminder that we all need over and over. :)

    1. I agree! Me being the number one person needing it :) :)

  2. Amen Lisa! Waiting is always hard, but I think it's one of life's best teachers too. If we (myself included) can learn to trust in the Lord's timing, everything else almost seems easy to handle.

    1. This is so true....the hardest things teach the best lessons. Good to have you back around!!

  3. Thanks for this, Lisa. I needed it. :)
