While I wait

As I was waiting for sleep last night I came across this song by Lincoln Brewster:

“While I Wait”
Deep within my heart, I know You’ve won
I know You’ve overcome
And even in the dark, when I’m undone
I still believe it

I live by faith, and not by sight
Sometimes miracles take time

While I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship Your name
While I wait, I will trust You
Lord, I’ll trust You all the same

When I fall apart, You are my strength
Help me not forget
Seeing every scar, You make me whole
You’re my healer

I live by faith, and not by sight
Sometimes miracles take time

While I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship Your name
While I wait, I will trust You
Lord, I’ll trust You all the same

You’re faithful every day
Your promises remain
You’re faithful every day
Your promises remain

Though I don’t understand it
I will worship with my pain
You are God, You are worthy
You are with me all the way

So while I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship Your name
Though I don’t have all the answers
Still I trust You all the same

I thought not just what tremendous lyrics they are: ‘So while I wait, I will worship”, but what a great attitude to have!
So often we wait for something in fear, or in frustration or anger, what a difference it would make if we used our waiting time for worship!
This is not just something spontaneous when we feel like it, it is intentional, it is something we actively choose to do.  I choose not to wait in fear, I choose to worship.  I choose not to wait in anger, I choose to worship.  I choose not to wait in frustration, I choose to worship.
We wait for many things:- for sleep, for healing, for peace, for tomorrow, for holidays for test results, for exam results, for decisions, for resolutions. We wait.
While I wait I will worship, Lord, I’ll worship Your Name.
We wait to hear from loved ones, we wait for kind words, we wait for a letter, a phone call, we wait to hear.
While I wait I will worship, Lord, I’ll worship Your Name.
We wait for the kettle, we wait for the washing, we wait for ‘paint to dry’, we wait for the rain to stop, for the sun to come out.  We wait.
While I wait I will worship, Lord, I’ll worship Your Name.
We wait in traffic, we wait in waiting rooms, we wait for people, we wait for solutions, we wait for answers.  We wait.
While I wait I will worship, Lord, I’ll worship Your Name.
So while I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship Your name
Though I don’t have all the answers
Still I trust You all the same
While I wait I will worship, Lord, I’ll worship Your Name.
