My Heart Waits With Bated Breath

Psalm 84

Blessed are those who dwell in Your house

Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,

Whose heart is set on pilgrimage

For the Lord is a sun and shield

For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.

The Lord will give grace and glory

No good thing will He withhold

From those who walk uprightly

O Lord of hosts,

Blessed is the man who trusts in You!


My heart is set on You.  I’m on a journey, a pilgrimage to go deeper with You.  I want to dig and grow deep roots in You alone.  You are the home my heart longs for and desires.  My heart waits with bated breath for You.  Trusting in Your goodness.  My exhale comes in knowing You.  So intimately close with You that any separation causes an “ouch.”  Learning to trust You and see that You are not withholding any good thing.  Trusting Your plans and timing even when while I wrestle.  Bringing it all to You.

Am I there? Have I suddenly learned to trust? Am I now an amazingly patient person who loves to wait?  Has the wrestle and struggle with hope stopped? No, but I’m pressing in and asking Him more and more to teach me.  Seeing that trust, hope, and wait all go together.  So, I read. I meditate. I soak up time with Him.  All to get to know His heart, His character, His nature, Him even better.  I’m exhaling in the bits that I do know and letting go to let Him work.  Getting out of the way so that time and God can do the work.

  1. I loved this post. I wish I could express myself as beautifully as you just did. It really is hard to let go and just trust that God will take care of everything. That is one thing that I am currently working on as I grow in faith, I feel like I;m moving slowly but I know that eventually I will get there.
