While We Are Waiting

Today I Will Be Present

It seems we're always waiting for something. Waiting for the perfect spouse, the perfect job, to have money, to have time. Waiting, waiting, waiting.

But what happens when we set out on our dreams and we can start to see what lies down the road ahead? I know that nothing is guaranteed and that I could die tomorrow. I'm not being naive. I'm just talking about when you're fairly certain something is going to happen in the future.

What do we do while we wait?

We can't be there yet. That place we long to be. Yet, we can taste the sweet freedom of it.

What do we do while we wait?

This is where I am. I know something's coming. The time and place is not set in stone, but it's there. I have made my way down one mountain and am strolling through the valley as I gaze upon the next, big, beautiful mountain. It's there. Right in front of me, but it can not be navigated yet.

So what do I do while I wait for God to say, "Now." How do I handle my waiting so that it is not wasted and is honoring to him? I have to be the best that I can be at what He's given me to do right now.

This is harder than it seems. When we reach those benchmarks in our life, the things we're waiting for, it's easy to do our best. When we first get married, it's easy to be the best spouse. When our children are first born, it's easy to be the best parent. When we land that dream job, it's easy to be on time, work hard and not disappoint. But when we're in this valley it's hard.

So today, I will notice what's in front of me. My family, my friends, my job, all of it, and I will do each thing that is required of me to the best of my ability. I will be present in each moment I am given and give it my all. Because that's all I can do.

And tomorrow, I'll do it again. Over and over until He says, "Now."

What do you do while you're waiting?
