This is it. The last day of the 31 Day Series: How to Find God in Your Wait. In several days, I hope to post a list of waiting resources for you. Songs, books, etc. In the meantime, I leave you with…
The Best Way to Waste Your Wait
If you want all of this pain to count for nothing, focus on yourself.
Don’t seek God’s face. Don’t run to Him with your honest cries, your worship, your questions.
Get bitter. Feel entitled. Lick your wounds and be the victim. Make sure all this aching has absolutely no eternal value.
Don’t choose joy, don’t choose worship, don’t choose the Treasure who cannot perish.
Make an idol of whatever you wait for. Worship at it’s shrine, and distrust the true God of the universe for not handing you your false gods.
Forget that Jesus is about redemption, and that the cross means even the worst circumstances are made to bow down and serve God, and to serve the good of those who love Him.
Don’t look at big picture. Don’t dream about how this ache fits into God’s miraculous story of salvation. Gaze upon yourself. It’s all about you. Your pain. Your needs. Your lost time.
