Endurance for the Journey, Featured

I waited patiently for the Lord;
He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the muck and mire;
He set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
PSALM 40:1-2 (NIV)



We live in a time when waiting is synonymous with waste. When we wait, we feel we are wasting precious time. Yet for so many people in pain, waiting is the one thing they do – a lot. They wait for the doctor. They wait for test results. They wait for the medicine to work. They wait for the world to take notice that they have needs. They wait in line at the pharmacy. They wait for life to return to “normal.” Their days are filled with waiting.


Something amazing often happens, however, to those whose days are filled with waiting. They discover that life is best observed and cherished in the wait. Our waiting gives God time – time to speak to us – to bring us to reflection, surrender and peace. Waiting allows us to gather the strength and courage we need to face whatever comes.



He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch His breath.
And He knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
they run and don’t get tired,
they walk and don’t lag behind.
ISAIAH 40:28-31 (THE MESSAGE)



On the journey with you,
Jan & Dave Dravecky
