Focus not on possibility of a storm but on something beautiful, something good.  PHIL:4:8

Waiting can be a very hard time.    It is a time of ‘uncertainty’ even waiting for good things like a holiday or Christmas. Cutting through the hype and balancing reality of natural expectations is often hard.

        From ages past Messiah’s Birth was expected but when He came, HE was not what some had presupposed He was going to be.  

          If you are waiting today for something, be it an exam result, selection in a team, a new baby, a storm to bring rain, a storm warning of impending doom or a storm regarding a health crisIs, the following are good guidelines………

  1.          Information (ensure its true)
  2.          Preparation of heart attitude.
  3.           Expectancy (curtailed by peace and serenity)
  4.            THE HOPE that in all circumstances those who TRUST in the Lord will KNOW the JOY of New Beginnings with the DAWN. 

Waiting for me in this day is a focus on that which is BEAUTIFUL. Not on any storm clouds on the horizon 

I pray that you too will find a BEAUTIFUL FOCUS if not in a picture, but in the green grass and the clusters of white clouds above. 

Blessings and Love to you. 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Thanx for this reminder to wait in hope and joy! Been focusing on too much evil coming into the world as things get worse before His return. But this is a good reminder that He will come for a Beautiful Bride and we can await in joy! 🙂
