Waiting Upon the Lord

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord!  

On Easter Sunday, the MungerKids Choir sang Chris Tomlin's Everlasting God in front of the congregation. I've been thinking about that song a lot these past few days.  What powerful song! 




Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord (repeat)

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer

You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary

You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles





God is the everlasting God.  He doesn't change.  He is always the same and always there for us.  The same God who created the earth, the God of Sarah and Abraham, the God of Hannah, is the God I pray to.  God is everlasting.  He can bear my burden.  He comforts me.  He raises me up. 
 
Right now I am waiting.  Our "2ww" ends next week and so now all we do is wait and pray.  That pray part seems pretty key to me.  "Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord."  This time of waiting and praying is making my stronger.  I am learning to wait upon the Lord and accept His reign and His timing.  As long as I continue to hope in the Lord I know it will be okay.
 
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the
Lordwill renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31
