While I'm Waiting

I heard this song today on Spirit FM (yes, I listen to it at school:). It's from the movie, Fireproof. During the song on the radio, there is talking from the movie, so I couldn't concentrate fully on the words. I looked up the song, it spoke straight to my heart and I just wanted to document it here to have for one of those days when I just don't think I can go on. Without saying too much more, Trenton and I have yet again been going through unbearable pain that we never wanted to experience again. I hope we can be patient and continue to serve God, while we wait...There are so many things in our lives right now that are causing a mixture of feelings. I feel like God is laying so many things in place for our future and it's hard to be patient at times. I find myself nervous, excited, anxious, scared, etc. But mostly, I just need to remember to be grateful and thankful for God's love and plan.

8. While I’m Waiting
Psalm 5:3, 27:14, 33:20, 37:7, 38:15, 40:1, Isaiah 30:18, Lamentations 3:24
John Waller

"The explanation for this song is simple, I was waiting on God and I was hurting when I wrote the lyrics. I probably wouldn’t have written
a song if my friend, Mike, hadn’t encouraged me to document what I was going through during that time. I’m sure there are few people
who can’t relate to this song, but the important thing to remember while we’re waiting on God is to not just wait but to actively wait.
Serve, worship and be faithful with what you have, where you are… “even while (you) wait.”

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
