Holding Pattern

Right now our lives are in somewhat of a holding pattern. There are events and changes looming on the horizon. And while not all of these events actually involve us they will have an effect on our lives.
The horizon is where these things have been lingering for the last several weeks and that does not appear to be changing anytime soon. So we sit and we wait.
I confess I am not very good at waiting. I am the type of person who always guesses which line will be quickest and then keeps track to see if I chose correctly. Like I said waiting is not one of my strengths.
But waiting is where I find myself. There is nothing I can do about to change the situation.
Yesterday I was thinking about this period of waiting, and this scripture came to mind "Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings like eagles, they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isiah 40:31
So instead of hating and enduring this waiting period I have decided to try my best and rest in it. To seek to honor God with this time of waiting. To proclaim my trust in His divine nature and timing that is perfect. To admit that he can see far beyond the scope of my limited vision and to trust Him with our future.
So Lord, in this season of waiting please be our strength and renew us. Foster our spirits that when what is on the horizon comes we will be able to run and not grow weary, that we will walk with you and not faint.
In researching in my concordance the word waiting I came across Psalm 40. After the first 4 verses that talk about waiting on the Lord, verse 5 says this: "Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare." Please Lord let this be our testimony of you too when the waiting is done.
Until then I'll be here circling and holding. Holding onto Jesus.
