It’s Friday!! Welcome to the Waiting on God Bible reading summary week 3. I don’t know about you, but I surely felt like God was teaching me so much this week about waiting on him to move. Let’s take a peek at what I’ve been learning and I hope you’ll share too!

Isaiah 26:4-9

We wait for God's perfect timing because this is when He will receive the most glory. It's for his name and renown. #waitingonGod #biblejournaling

Isaiah 33:1-6

We get weary in God’s waiting room. #WaitingOnGod But: “Standing still, listening to his voice, and having our hearts open to his word– these waiting room activities provide and build strength.” – One More Step

Lamentations 3:25-33

‘It is good for a woman to wait quietly for the Lord.” This passage makes me feel like I’m stepping it up a notch. Not only should I be waiting for God, but I need to be waiting quietly for God. Not complaining about the wait. Enjoying the stillness. As a mom to 7, I so appreciate stillness! Now if I can learn how to enjoy the wait.

Hosea 12:1-6

God waits for us. He is the Father with an eye on our path, just waiting for that moment we choose to turn to him with full attention.

Sometimes it would be nice to have an extra arm, you know? I feel like I could really make use of it! Having help with my crew at home is vital and having help from the Lord for every moment? Even more vital. This passage is so strong. The prophet is telling the people to RETURN from their ways. God waits for us. He is the Father with an eye on our path, just waiting for that moment we choose to turn to him with full attention.

Romans 8:19-27

I love how the ESV uses the word "eagerly." Because waiting doesn't mean we have to sit and twiddle our thumbs. There is so much heart work to be completed during the wait. The question is: am I focused on the heart work God is doing or the hard wait of where God is leading? #waitingonGod

Psalm 25:1-5

We're willing to wait for our favorite coffee or the best seat at the stadium. We don't mind waiting at our favorite restaurant. But do we treat God with respect for who He is? Do we deem him worthy of the wait?

 

We’re willing to wait for our favorite coffee or the best seat at the stadium. We don’t mind waiting at our favorite restaurant. But do we treat God with respect for who He is? Do we deem him worthy of the wait? Because the God of our salvation is worthy of waiting for His will to be worked in our lives.

Psalm 25:6-12

“All the Lord’s ways show faithful and true…” Not some. Not a few. ALL of his ways. May we cling to his ways today!

I’d love to hear what you’ve been learning! Would take a minute and share with us today?

Have a fabulous Friday!

    i like the comments that u discussed about waiting on God with being patient. it will come for us to go with Him in right time. and one question about journaling bible, i see u have color pencil can u tell me what kind and brand so i can compare to my regular color pencil also what is difference between ESV and NIV

    1. Hi Carly. I like the Artist’s Loft Watercolor pencils. They are so smooth and blend really well. ESV is English Standard Version and NIV is New International Version. To try to make it simple, the ESV is an English translation by a certain set of scholars and the NIV is another English translation by a different set of Scholars. This article provides more detail on the differences and similarities between the two: https://bible.org/article/net-niv-esv-brief-historical-comparison Hope that helps! Happy journaling!

  3. Waiting on God…The Lord is merciful and will not reject us forever
    Waiting on God…Waiting patiently on God to act
    Waiting on God…if we see what we hope for, then it is not really hope
    Waiting on God…defeat does not come to those who trust in Him
    Waiting on God…where He leads me I will go
    Waiting on God…I look to the Lord for help at all times

  4. This has been a great reminder of being patient. I have seen a transformation in me over the summer through caring for my mom, and these passages have been timly in having patinece with an aging parent. Thank you, I am so happy I ran across your site back in June of this year. I have loved and looked forward, each day, to reading and praying on the next verse for study. It has been an answer to prayer to find something to make the discipline of bible study something I look forward to rather than dread when I don’t understand what I was suppose to get out of the lessons. Thank you, thank you.

  5. I’m learning a lot of the same things. Waiting is not wasting time. Waiting can be renewing, rebuilding and renovating. Waiting is it easy, rarely fun, but almost always beneficial and completely necessary in our walk with the Lord. If I hadn’t had this time of waiting in our lives there is so much about myself I wouldn’t have seen, and so much about who He is that I would’ve missed. I’m still far from perfect at the waiting game, but I’m learning to lean into and embrace it instead of fight it or wish it away.
