Wait for the Lord

Sitting and waiting is not something most of us do well. A surgery date was supposed to be relayed to me by today and then I was going to let folks know an update. I know many of the people in my life find this process is going on too long. I maintain that because I am in God’s hands, I am in good hands. Today’s psalm was once again Psalm 27 that ends with the words Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage: wait for the Lord! Wait with me in peace and courage.

The Gospel reading today is from John and tells the story of the feeding of the thousands. A nameless boy–an instrument of God’s abundance–has five barley loaves and two fish. Andrew offers this doubtfully. Jesus simply responds with a Make the people sit down. He gives thanks and suddenly everyone has as much as they need with a bounty of blessings left over. Not one scrap is lost.

This is the God I believe in. I place my trust in God and in gratitude for what is possible through my faith.

I will take what I am given and believe it will be more than enough.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
