Extra SHOT for Monday.



Psa. 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.


Easy to say and do, right?
Waiting.
Waiting.
WAIT.

When I think of this word WAIT I think of the "WAITING ROOM!" 

What happens in the waiting room?
You sit.
TIME stands still...
You literally have to sit and wait for your name to be called. 
"Beka, You can come back now."
You can't do anything to get in faster... even if you are there EARLIER... or later(so people tell me anyway.. I'm always on time. gulp!)
You have to sit and wait.


 Waiting is a specialty that is in my blood. My dad always tells the story of my Papaw Phillips..... when people would be "running late" (to him they were late if they weren't there 15 minutes BEFORE they said they would be!) 
...back to the story....
Papaw would be OUTSIDE ...on the STREET in front of his house waiting on them... just walking.... up and down the street waiting.... and walking...
Patient man.
See?  PATIENCE runs in my blood. 
My mommy's side... would be the people running late. ;) 

COUGH*
Waiting. Something I never have been good at, yet God is asking us to just sit tight & hold on. 
Y'all might be asking... 
"What about? What are you waiting on? WHy are you making me wait to find out what YOU are waiting on?" 

Well, Dear friends.... that's just it. WE(superman and i) are not sure what we are waiting on.....we feel like something is around the corner.... brewing... But we aren't there yet. 
so. we. wait. 

This isn't just hippie talk. 

Do you ever have that feeling that GOD is about to bring you some BLESSING & you are just sitting on the edge of your seat? 



I have to wait and see what this BLESSING is...... 
Something is on the edge... 




What should we do while we wait in the "waiting room?"
NORMALLY, I check instagram or twitter. (hangs head)

But God is asking me to DIVE into His PRESENCE even more.....
find MORE time with HIM..... pray way more than I do now.
(3 times a day, actually... BIG SIGH* I can do this... it just means early rising..+ coffee) 



Waiting on more to come from Him. 



Are you in a waiting season?
What are you doing to prepare your hearts for the BLESSING that IS coming?


What are you praying about?

WHO ARE YOU PRAYING FOR?

Who are you blessing your gifts with?


Who are you blessing in this waiting time?

Who are you listening to in this quiet time?




Lord, 
Help me wait on you in this time.
Give me Patience. & wisdom.
I can't do this on my own.
Thank you for laying out my steps.
