“it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. (Lamentations 3:26 NIV)”
It is good to wait quietly.
Quietly here means “in silence”.
There is a time to stop wondering, worrying, analyzing and overthinking where you are or where you are supposed to be and just be quiet for a while.
God knows what is going on. He knows what will happen. He loves you.
The verse before this one is quoted all the time:
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” (Lamentations 3:22-24 NIV)
Sometimes you need a break from yourself and allow hope to break though.
Instead of overthinking your life today, stop. Silence your mind and open your heart to hope.
New mercies are coming your way.
