I don’t know about you, but too often I want to fill in the blank spaces of life—to do something—to make something happen … now. God has used the schoolroom of building a house in the country to help break me of this bad habit.
No one is in a hurry here. There’s time to watch a soaring bird riding the wind’s currents, to marvel at the setting sun, and to trust that God has everything in perfect control.
Stanton Lanier, the pianist of peace, says that we have made ourselves complicated. I think he’s right. When I opened my e-mails today, I discovered a free download of the beautiful song “Simplicity” from Stanton’s Draw Near CD. If you would like to experience a sample of his beautiful, calming music, visit www.stantonlanier.com.
May you and I heed the words of Oswald Chambers: “There are times when you cannot understand why you cannot do what you want to do. When God brings the blank space, see that you do not fill it in, but wait.”
Yes, whether we are in the office or in our home, may we wait on God’s best … today.
