Waiting Room

Grandma Paulson at Age 90

Waiting Room

My mom died of multi-infarct dementia. Awful disease.

In her last few months, she described her living area as a Waiting Room. She would ask: “How long do I have to stay in the waiting room?”

That is similar to our situation, except that we have lots to do while we wait.

We have God-given work to do. We should be seeking God with our whole hearts. We are to be growing in the love and knowledge of God.

But, in addition, we should be expectantly waiting for Christ. We should be living in the hope of the glory of God.

Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)

We exult in hope of the glory of God. (Romans 5:2)


Lord, please help us walk in a manner worthy of You while we wait. Help us focus on You, the hope of glory.
