Tuesdays Are For Inspiration

For those who have to wait:

I give myself to the one 
who has the courage to find me and free me.

Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
You guard all that is mine.
Psalm 16:5 NLT

Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.
A.W. Tozer

We must be willing to get rid of the life we planned,
so we can have the life that's waiting for us.

God is not a man, that He should lie,
Or a son of man, that He should change His mind.
Has He said, and will He not do it?
Or has He spoke, and will He not fulfill it?
Numbers 23:19

Most people will wait their whole life waiting for adventure to call, but waiting is a difficult thing for us human beings. And so on the day our phone finally rings, it's too late because we give up long before that day. Except you, Walt, who are among a very small number of people who don't give up. You wait. And when it calls, you say... "yes".
-Eva Dobbley ("Adventure Now")

Actually, if you were a fan of that last quote, check out a much better blog HERE by Lydia.
Be inspired. Waiting has this horrible way of being what we needed all along.
