Usually I think about waiting on The Lord. But the other night God spoke to my heart. He said “I wait” As I thought more about what that meant I remembered my own fathers last words to me. ” My love for you is long and patient” I didn’t understand why my dad would say that to me. I chalked it up to the cancer that had gone to his brain. But those words haunted me for a few years.
Then one day, out of the blue, God gave me understanding. You see my dad knew my walls were up. My dad was willing to patiently wait until I let those walls come down and show his love to me. I put those walls up to protect myself.
Ok that’s the background.
The other night. my husband and I were at a marriage retreat. During worship, God spoke to my heart. He said “I wait”. I wondered what more God wanted to say. Then He said “I wait and watch. I wait for the walls to come down, I watch to see willingness”
“THEN I COME”
Sometimes He comes in a gentle breeze. Sometimes He comes as a mighty rushing wind. But just like my dad waited for me to let him in God waits too!
I never thought my dad’s last words would become a parable. But it has! How cool is that!
