Expectantly Waiting


I wait [patiently] for the LORD, my soul [expectantly] waits, And in His word do I hope.”   Psalm 130:5 AMP

Patience has always been a word I feared. The thought of asking God for patience put in mind many trials and lessons that would teach me patience. I do like the word “expecting”, it makes me think of the joy I felt when I was “expecting” my children, or as I waited for each of my grand babies to be born!! Now I know I can have the same attitude when I feel that my life is in crisis… In my prayers, I’m patiently expecting God to supply healing, salvation, wisdom, and peace to those I know and love.

And when I look back on my life, I can see all the times I’ve cried out to Him for help. In every instance He has always supplied. Every time! It may not have been how I envisioned it, but of course the results were always more than I imagined. Now as I ask for miracles in our life, I remind myself that my hope is in Him and I can have patience as I expectantly wait for God’s plan to be fulfilled.

Prayer: Dearest Heavenly Father, I praise your Holy Name for every good and perfect thing in my life, for I know they are all gifts from You. I will praise You as I wait expectantly for You to complete Your plan for our lives. Amen

  1. Thank you for sharing Marlene, I was just talking to the Lord this morning about the purpose and direction of this ministry, the Encouraging Word. And trying to wait patiently for His Spirit to move. Now I will wait with expectation! That sounds much more exciting! I can wait patiently for that! Blessings to you.


  2. And wow how the Lord has answered your prayers for your beloved husband, Mark! “Praise you, Lord!”
