While I'm waiting

How many of us are sitting on the sidelines of life waiting for something to happen?  I think there are many people in that very place.  Waiting on God maybe.  Or how about waiting on a win from the lottery or for their luck to change.  Whatever it may be, God has some things that we ought to think about while we wait.
 
Philippians 3:13 (nlt) --- No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,
 
I am not waiting, but there are times I have to wait on God.  This morning I had one of those moments as life was rushing by me.  I heard a song on the radio that caught my attention.  Sharing them with you today (my simple thought is below):
 
"While I'm Waiting" by John Waller
 
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
 
This song was in the movie FIREPROOF which is what my small group is studying.  The song has hit me in the heart several times.  Listen to it HERE.
 
In life we have to wait on many, many things.  Yet God is at work all around us.  Are we trusting Him in our lives, I mean in everything?  Waiting on God is not easy at all.  But It the right thing to.
 
"While I'm waiting, God, I will worship, I will serve you.  And I will trust you ..."
