“Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and take heart
And wait for the Lord.”
In our busy world we rush about surrounded by noise and action. “Everyone, hurry”. “Quickly now, we must move on to the next big thing.” “Don’t get left behind”. “Hurry”.
Yet God calls for us to slow down.
In God’s time there is no rush. As we approach the season of Lent, let us stop and wait on the Lord.
All that is around us is temporary. All our wants, desires and longings will only be satisfied for a moment, unless we are looking for the eternal. In this life we have a choice to rush after what is fading or to wait and listen for what is everlasting.
On Wednesday we begin the journey to the cross. The start of the Lenten season. Traditionally a season of reflection and preparation for Jesus’ triumphant victory over death, it is a season of discernment, reflection and redemption. As we start this journey let us take a moment and wait on the Lord.
Let us open our ears and hearts to the guidance of the Spirit. Be silent in body and mind and let the Lord speak to you.
Rest now. Wait for the Lord. He wants to walk this road with you. Today as we prepare for the season ahead, wait for God to speak to your heart and guide you to the resurrection.
