Waiting on the Lord...

Why is it so hard to wait? This season of waiting has been a peaceful one but there are times when I wonder how much longer will we have to wait? And questions of "Am I waiting the way you want me to Lord?" "Lord, help me to wait faithfully...completely trusting!!'

~How long until P has a new job....
~How long until we can bring our next peanut home...this is the hardest one for me to wait on :) I feel like our little guy is waiting for us and that thought rocks me to my very core!! I am confident that my Jesus is loving on him and protecting him until it's our time to come.

My God is faithful and His plans are perfect and if He is calling us to wait, then we will wait...I will say that I can't wait till He says, "GO...GO...GO"....hehehe...

So, I started looking up bible verses on waiting. WOW, there are a TON of them...think God is trying to tell us something :) I am waiting on You my precious Master, my precious Daddy!!

Here's a few:
