The Journey with Ron Moore

Waiting | Psalm 38:9-22

Today’s Passage: Psalm 38:9-22
Key Verse: Psalm 38:15

LORD, I wait for you; you will answer, LORD my God.

Lord, waiting on you is hard. The procedure took longer than I thought, and now I anticipate the results. My mind gets carried away with the “what ifs.” Lord, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God.

Lord, waiting on you is hard. Today he says that he will file the papers. How can all the years together—the home, children, memories—how can they all be packed away in his mind like seasonal ornaments stored in the attic? Lord, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God.

Lord, waiting on you is hard. Recovery wasn’t supposed to take this long. Why so many complications? Where is the healing? Lord, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God.

Lord, waiting on you is hard. I have had a peace since leaving the meeting where I learned the company was downsizing. I knew you would provide. I was confident that a new job . . . a better job . . . would come my way. I still am, but the weeks have turned into months. Lord, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God.

Lord, waiting on you is hard. However, I have learned the danger of running ahead, doing my own thing, trying to work my own timing. Please give me the will to wait for you and give me peace in the waiting. Lord, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God.
