I'm His In The Waiting

Lately waiting has been difficult. From a Christian perspective waiting isn't pointless and we do more than just sit in a room and look off into the distance. Right? I think most of us know that but it doesn't make it any easier. While we wait to go to Ecuador we are moving towards it. While we rest in Him we are laboring to make it happen. One thing we're beginning to understand is that God does so much in the time between the beginning and the end. Think of someone's life. On his gravestone you only see a dash between two dates yet you know so much has happened between his birth and death. But sometimes when we are in a waiting period we are fooled into thinking the only thing that matters is when it started and finished. To keep the life analogy for a moment, that dash means more than just what that person did for a while. Truth be told that life affected all that came into contact with it. And so it is with waiting. Waiting isn't only for ourselves but it does something to all that come in contact with us.

After looking around online it seems there is some disagreement as to how many there are but everyone agrees there is more than one. Life is complicated. There isn't just one organ that has to function and you can live, but several of them have to be working or you won't make it. The majority of your vital organs functioning isn't enough. If one goes out, that's it. Have you ever thought about how complicated your body is?
