While I'm Waiting..

I listen to alot of contemporary Christian music and I heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It's from the movie Fireproof.
My walk with Christ is a continuous journey. This song spoke to me today like it never has before.
Learning to be patient and to WAIT has never been a strong point for me. Does anyone else struggle with this? I want everything NOW - instant gratification should be tattooed to my forehead!
It's not easy but I'm working on it everyday and I will worship and serve the Lord every step of the way! And the blessing is that if I screw up and believe me, I screw up, all I have to do is ask forgiveness and I'm forgiven! Isn't that awesome???
Here's the lyrics. I'm sure most of you have heard it but I wanted to share. The link to the video is also attached.
Watch Video:
I'm 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
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
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
And you know what else is awesome - while I'm waiting, I have all you wonderful new/old friends to talk to! You all are such an inspiration to me. It's so wonderful to hop from blog to blog and read scripture, listen to uplifting songs, hear inspirational stories, etc. You all are such a blessing.

  11. Girl I am just like you, nothing like some instant gratification to make me happy.
    But the best laid plans are the ones worth waiting for as hard as that may be.
    Thanks for sharing a very inspiring messgage to all of us!!!
