Still Waiting?

Dear Waiters,

We are all waiting for something. What are you waiting for?

Country singer Brad Paisley has a hit song that says he is “Waitin' on a Women.”

My apologies to anyone for whom that may sound sexist. Over the years, as a male, I have left many people waiting on me for a variety of things.

The Danish Christian philosopher Soren Kierkegaard said that each of us is born with ”sealed orders.” That is, each of us is here for a purpose, some direction that God has in mind for us. But that purpose, that direction, is not self-evident to us according to Kierkegaard. Therefore we must search the scriptures, we must be attentive to the leadings of the Holy Spirit, and we must seek the guidance of the church if we are to find what lies within our “sealed orders.”

May your prayers this week lead you to scripture, prayer, and service in the presence of Jesus. In sacred time with Christ, there is opportunity for discloser of your “sealed orders” at a deeper level.

Keep on waiting in faith. For Jesus was, is and will be coming to answer your prayers.

See 1 Corinthians 9:16-23 and Isaiah 40:21-31 for further reflection.

Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
