Wellness Wednesday- Waiting

Waiting is something that could be a bit frustrating at times. I am not talking about waiting in line at a check out at a supermarket or waiting for someone to get ready. The waiting I am talking about is waiting to go over test results with a specialist.

Anyone who has seen a doctor specializing in any area of medicine knows what I am talking about. It can be stressful to wait.

I saw a specialist last Wednesday. He left me a voice message saying he wanted to discuss next steps with me. I had been waiting for a week to do so but wouldn’t you know it, I was teaching when he called. Hopefully we can connect today so I can get the next steps. I would much rather wait to get thorough results that have a quick answer.

Waiting on God is not the same. In Isaiah 40:31 says

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

The phrase ‘who hope’ is sometimes translated’ who wait’. Waiting on the Lord does not mean we nervously wait wondering what the answer or results will be. Waiting on the Lord in Isaiah means spending time in the Lord’s presence hoping in the Lord. If we do that, we will be refreshed and renewed.

So this afternoon I am enjoying time with Jesus while I wait for the doctor to contact me.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. As you wait on the Lord, He will always hold your hand and give you the peace. Pray it all goes well at the doctors as you rest in His presence. Big hugs to you Big Bro xoxo

  2. I can relate. I had an MRI done on Friday many years ago. The specialist could have given me the results as they knew the results. Had to wait until Monday to see the doctor who had the test to get the results. This was a follow-up to a Cat Scan that showed an abnormality.

  3. Praying your follow up appointments go well and bring relief..in the meantime the Great Physician provides peace and comfort in the waiting!!❤️

      1. Haha well no…it was at my sister in laws and we actually called it a yard sale because she doesn’t even have a garage…and before you ask no we did not sell her yard!!😂😂😂❤️

  4. Amen. I am thankful that as we wait on the Lord, we can wait with expectation, knowing He is working out His best for us. How’s the book coming along? I am “waiting” to buy it lol.
