Waiting in the Rain

It’s a rainy day.

These are the types that make you want to curl up and read a good book.  To take a nap.  To be lazy and unproductive (in a good way).  There’s something triggered within us to say inwardly that because we can’t go outside, we must wait for another time.

But the fruit of the earth needs rainy days; and your life’s purpose needs a season of waiting upon God.

Some of the best things in this world can be done at the wrong times.  Your life is not a math problem that needs figuring out.  It is a narrative, a story, that unfolds in its due time.  And so these rainy times of waiting are important for anticipating…expecting…for being vigilant, because you don’t want to miss it.  It is that part of the movie that is so deep, and profound, and powerful; and if you miss it have to rewind to catch the moment.

Seasons of waiting are important.

There is much to accomplish on these rainy days.

I will watch in hope for the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation;
My God will hear me. (Micah 7:7)
