So I’m here at another doctors appointment for my loved one. I rushed this morning to meet up, and make the hour drive to the appointment. As of now, we have been here for four hours. Yes, it’s part of the “hurry up and wait” that we all have to do in life. However, I remember this is not new, we are not alone, and there is a purpose in the waiting.
“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.
During this time, as our country works on how to “reopen,” it feels like we are told, again, to hurry up and wait. But, yes, there is a purpose and reason for the wait. Each person, business, town, county, state, country, and region of the world has to figure out what is the next move for them. Each one needs to find the strength and resources they will need. Some of us will be able to jump into “life as it was” yet others will have to take each step more slowly.
Only God knows what will happen tomorrow, next week or even next year. We do have many in the medical, science, and economy fields trying to explain how things will play out, but ONLY GOD knows for sure. So during this amazing time of HURRY UP AND WAIT, I ask you to have patience with others. Do not judge one another. But most of all, BE KIND TO EACH OTHER. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER, differently, but together.
P.S. If you need a giggle, check out MercyMe’s new song, “Hurry Up and Wait.” Yes, it was the inspiration for this blog.
