Waiting on God takes the fruit of patience.

I believe in the philosophy that you take pictures for your own enjoyment and if others enjoy them, that’s icing on the cake. This is my favorite picture from this photo shoot, but when I posted it on Facebook, only one other person liked it…and that’s okay.
You see, I keep waiting for this goose to land. What’s called “negative space,” the space of “nothingness” in front of this goose, anticipates its arrival. It was a millisecond later that this guy displaced a fair amount of water and swam next to his bride. Or, was it the other way around?
There might be times in our lives that we feel like we’re waiting to land. We haven’t arrived at our destination and it feels like we’re suspended indefinitely in space.
And we hear God’s call to be patient.
“We ask him to strengthen you by his glorious might with all the power you need to patiently endure everything with joy.”
Colossians 1:11 God’s Word to the Nations
“To patiently endure everything with joy” might seem over demanding. Paul doesn’t know the struggles that you and I endure. How can he ask us to endure this mess with joy?
I want to land!
We will land, but it will not be here on this spinning planet. We will land with our true Love, Jesus Christ. He has guaranteed our safe landing through his cross and resurrection.
Until then we wait.
