Wondering While We Wait
At present, we may find ourselves spending time considering our lives and the value of living. “Wondering while we wait” is normal and natural.
It is what we spend our time wondering about that matters most.
Are we consumed with our financial loss as we watch the stock market continue to go lower and lower? Are we compelled and concerned with having the resources we will need should the situation linger longer than we are prepared for? We will be exposed and suffer from the virus that is affecting and afflicting so many in our world?
These and other questions are no doubt close to our hearts as we are “wondering while we wait”.
All of this is reasonable as the known becomes clouded out by the unknown and the certainty of the things we thought we knew gives way to the uncertainty of the things we don’t know.
Yet, it is in these times of wondering we can see the wonders of God and the gift of the life He has allowed us to live.
How you might ask? Well, all we need to do is open our eyes to see the beauty and wonder all around us.
The familiarity of a loved one or the calming voice of a friend can bring comfort in the middle of confusion. The cool breeze in the early morning and the sound of the birds singing at sunrise are reasons to wait with wonder.
The beauty of living is all around us. We just need to open our eyes to see the wonders of this life and the goodness of God.
You see we choose what we think about as we are “wondering while we wait’. Instead of allowing our wondering to become worry and being concerned with the results of this current calamity, we could focus with anticipation on the impending recovery as we trust our Lord to lead us through yet another storm.
The choice is ours.
As for me, as I wonder while I wait, I am going to focus on the wonders of God and the beauty of the life He has allowed me to live!
