Waiting for Good Things

Jackson's morning devotional brought me to tears this morning:

Kaitlyn is so excited! She and her family are going to a camp where they will have lots of fun. She waited and waited. And now the special day is here. Have you you ever had to wait for something special? It's hard to wait for something that we know is going to be very good. The Bible says that God has many good things for us on earth. But he will also have good things for us in heaven someday. Everything that God has for us is worth waiting for.

My Bible Verse:

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. Psalm 130:5

My Prayer:

Lord, it's sometimes hard to wait, But what you give is very great.

Thank you Lord for your faithfulness to me.

I would be a blubbering mess. But waiting is a part of it, and God knows we are sooo impatient (especially me!!)

He's involved in every area of our lives. I love that He can speak to us in our children's devotionals! I was at VBS this morning with the kids and the theme is Fear Not. I realized I needed to listen to what they were teaching because it applies to me too. :)

Thank you so much for sharing this! What a beautiful reminder of all of the good things that God does, and IS doing!
