Sometimes we are in a place where we are waiting, with our arms stretched high, for our Lord to come and pick us up. To lift us up out of something.
I'm not always able to get Lex right at the minute that he wants out, usually because I am preparing something. Dinner, a bath, coffee...to name a few.
Sometimes the Lord doesn't lift us up out of our situation right away, because He is preparing something.
And His somethings are always worth the wait.
I want to encourage you to stay standing, stay reaching towards Him, because at the right and perfect time, He is going to come and scoop you up and out, and then set your feet on solid ground!
"I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand."
Here is a great song to go along with this....
