Waiting is something that most of us don't like to do. It goes against our human nature of "now now now." After we had our miscarriage, I remember hearing this song and just being so moved by the words. I wanted to live out my faith like this song, to worship and trust the Lord regardless of anything, regardless of the fact that I was left waiting...waiting to get pregnant again, waiting for our turn for a baby, waiting for my heart to mend.
Sometimes God does call us to wait, for reasons that we can't understand, but always for our own good. Instead of getting mad about it or thinking that the Lord isn't doing what is best, how awesome is it to think about waiting and trusting Him through whatever storm He is bringing you through.
I love the way the song is so honest and true about the whole process, basically saying waiting is hard and it stinks, but I will chose to worship the Lord anyway. Through it all, I will be here waiting, hoping, trusting. And it's certainly not an easy thing to do, but it is a choice. We can choose to have this attitude, even when it's not in our nature.
I've had a few friends going through some rough patches lately and this song popped back into my head. No matter what God is calling you to wait through, love Him anyway, trust Him anyway. Whether you're waiting for your soul mate, for your turn to have a baby, for a new job, etc...chose to serve Him at all times, through anything and everything, remaining hopeful and patient. He is more than worthy of our complete trust.
