“Wait for the Lord whose day is near. Wait for the Lord, keep watch take heart.” This Taize chorus has been running through my head lately. I passed my hospital’s waiting room as I came into work today. I said a little prayer for all the people there. I pray for the patients that are waiting to be seen. I pray for the families that are waiting on news, any news. I pray for the nurses that are waiting for orders. I pray for the docs who are waiting on results. Waiting is hard. Maybe that’s why the Taize chorus rings so often in my heart. Keep watch. Take Heart.
2 Peter 3:13-15a
But, in accordance with his promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness is at home.
Therefore, beloved, while you are waiting for these things, strive to be found by him at peace, without spot or blemish; and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation.
