just thinking....

i've been thinking about John 11 lately....when Jesus decides to wait after hearing of Mary and Martha's brother dying...He waited and didn't come RIGHT then....sometimes i wonder why....why the wait. It's clear in this passage what the answer is:

"Did i not say to you, if you believe, you will see the glory of

do we not want to see the glory of God? i know i do....but my actions/words sometimes say otherwise.

Oh Lord, Your Glory we long to i wait, i wait on your timing, i wait in trust, i wait knowing you know best, i wait knowing you plan is perfect and blameless. help me to wait.

Most the time, we want God to fix our circumstance---but i'm sure that if we don't wait we miss out on God's riches and blessings He desires to display to us. i desire to choose waiting. "waiting is often the greatest part of love" someone once told me.
