While I'm Waiting . . .

We have been to see the movie Fireproof twice and LOVED it. If you haven't seen it--you should. While the movie had an awesome message concerning marriage, the part that touched me the most was a song by John Waller called While I'm Waiting. God used this powerful song to speak to me about something that has been weighing heavily on me for quite some time. See if it doesn't speak to you as well...

WHILE I'M WAITING-John Waller from The Blessing

I am waiting; I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful; I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I’m waiting; I will serve You
While I’m waiting; I will worship
While I’m waiting; I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I’m waiting; I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful; I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy, no; But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait

And I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I’m waiting; I will serve You
While I’m waiting; I will worship
While I’m waiting; I will not faint

I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
I'll be taking every step in obedience, yea

While I’m waiting; I will serve You
While I’m waiting; I will worship
While I’m waiting; I will not faint

I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You, Lord

Hi Terry, Thank you for answering my query and sorry for taking so long in getting back to you. I have no excuse except that life has been a little hectic around here. I would love the pattern of the butterfly when you have the time. :)
