Wait for the LORD;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the LORD.
The heart wrenching cry of two fawns made me drop everything this afternoon. Though I am not too fond of herds of deer eating away at my flowers and vegetables, I could not resist to walk a little closer and take a picture. As soon as I approached, instinct instructed the two young deer to lay down and curl up in the grass – to patiently wait for their mom.
I too find myself so often scared to death, while I am waiting on the Lord. He instructs me to wait and take courage.
“Father, teach me to wait patiently for You.
I know, You are there,
no matter what my circumstances try to tell me.
I know You see me.
I know You have a plan.
Help me to take courage.
Teach me what it means to be strong in heart.”
