You may think by now I would have learned how to wait on the Lord and trust Him better.  I believe the Lord is showing me that I need to do much better.  How do I know this?  I have found myself in many situations lately where I have to wait on a person and trust that the Lord will take care of everything while I have to wait.  Well guess what??  It is really, really hard to wait and not try to do something on my own — ya know take the situation into my own hands.  Then I have to go and read this verse again:

You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.  (2 Chronicles 20:17)

The good news is that I am getting much better at “being still” and “waiting” and “trusting” …. if it be on the Lord or on a person … oh and the most important part is that the result of waiting and not taking matters into my own hands is the outcome is sooooo much better than what I thought I could do on my own!   Ha!  I didn’t do it on purpose, but I have definitely at times taken things into my own hands and not understand why it wasn’t working out.  Duh!

Thankful that I am still learning to wait on Him!  He is Jehovah-Jireh — the One who sees and provides!!
