In the Waiting Room – Week 2 – Video

by Kathy

Happy Monday!  Welcome to week 2 of In the Waiting Room.  We are going to be studying Psalm 13 this week.  We don’t know what David was going through when he wrote this Psalm, but whatever it was, it prompted him to ask God four times, “how long?”.  This Psalm starts out with David’s emotions driving his opening comments.  As you study this passage, I pray that you will be able to apply what your learn and find joy in your wait!  I will send you my notes on Tuesday and Thursday.  Have an awesome week!

    I amreally enjoying this study! Thank you for your encouraging words, and your insight into the Psalms.. I have had waiting periods in my life that I have received either answers to- or have learned something from them. I continue to be in a waiting mode for answers to my prayers – so this study is perfect. I am praying for a few things right now that I would love to have you pray for too – I don’t want to share details (I don’t know how much is published) but the general idea of these prayers is for “the next step” in a person close to me, and “hearing the Holy Spirit” in another person close to me…Thank you again for your insights and your prayers

    God is great. God is good. God loves us so much. He is so thoughtful. Knowing that we will struggle at times to wait he has put words down that express our very thoughts and feelings about waiting. I was reading Ester last week. I began to think about what was required by her to save her people. She had to act and Wait to see the response of the king. I related to Ester as we have acted and now we have to wait for the King to respond on our behalf. As I read the passages in Ester I thought about my own journey and if I push for my way I would have missed out on the relationship that I have with Christ now. I feel as though I can relate to so many more people in scripture. I have been able to see how in Gods timing his people are blessed and protected. I want to be protected and blessed. I am not saying that I am excited that the journey is still going on that the mountains are higher and the valleys are lower than I thought they would be but. I am saying that I am comforted by the fact that I have the Lord of heaven and earth on my side and as long as I continue to pray and worship him he will make all things good.

    Trying to play catch up with Kathy! We were out of town, got the flu or food poisoning and catching up on a Beth Moore class I am in! I couldn’t get our ipad to bring up last weeks post, so doing 2 this week. Thank you for this series, and your comments on the video!

    I was just listening to this weeks video, and my husband and I too, prayed for our girls since before they were born, that they would meet and marry a Christian man who would love and serve Christ and love them and raise any children they might have, in a Christian home. Well, neither married Christian men, and we were so sad and confused as to why? Now, they are both married still and both of my daughters do attend church and bring the grand kids. For this we are grateful, still praying for our son in laws. On occasion they will attend, but just don’t understand, ~how long? I keep praying!! Thanks for this lesson!!

    Whoa! I needed a kleenex warning for that one! I could identify with many of your “How Long” examples, and it was another timely Psalm after a weekend that I spent most of in tears. Waiting is hard…especially when it doesn’t feel/seem like God is doing ANYTHING to bring that waiting to an end. I too can’t share specifics here, but would appreciate prayers. I just passed the 7 year mark of one of my waiting periods…it is one that breaks my heart. I know God is in control, and He will do what is best. I just need to keep speaking Truth to myself….

      Spent some time this evening praying for you. I’m praying earnestly for God to use these lessons to bless you, encourage and strengthen you as He weaves the tapestry of His timing to a perfect answer. Keep speaking Truth!

    You have certainly touched upon an open wound in my life. I’m so grateful to you for sharing your journey of having lost a child. It’s a sensitive topic that is not always shared. I know that you have been brought into my life for comfort and strength. God bless you and thank you so much for sharing your story. It’s just what I needed! Waiting is the hardest part.

      I am so thankful that God has used these words to encourage you. Please know that I will pray for you and yoru wait. I pray that these studies will continue to strengthen yoru heart and heal that open wound. Much love and grace to you….
