The Wait

Standard

It’s weird … this waiting.

This Neverland of Infinite Possibilities.

Well, no.  There really are only two possibilities.  Do I still have active cancer or am I back in remission?

And will this be my life going forward?  Do I or don’t I?  Holding my breath at every doctor’s visit awaiting the word?

I finished radiation treatments three weeks ago but can’t get a PET scan for another five weeks.

In the meantime I wait.  Everyone waits.

Like beached sailboats.  No water.  No movement.

Family.  Friends.  Everyone on hold.

We pray.

We wait.

It’s weird … this waiting.

    Isaiah 30:18 Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!

    As you wait, I know you’re actively placing your trust in Him. I’m trusting Him for you, too. Meanwhile, see you Thursday?

    • Oh I am soooo familiar with the scriptures on “wait” and thank you for reminding me about God’s timing and the strength He affords us while we wait. Yes to Thursday! 🙂

I'd love it if you'd comment! Thanks!
