Day 266; Footnotes on Waiting, Waiting, Waiting…Still Waiting

Didn’t show.

I sat here all day, waiting. There was no delivery of parts at any point during the day. The only thing the mail carrier left in my mailbox was a post card from someone wanting to buy my house. It was funny the way they had my name written up on the card all twisted around. I have no intention of selling so those are a minor annoyance that usually don’t even make it inside if I take the side step to the outside trash.

When my son got in from work I told him nothing showed. When he checked the tracking he told me it should be here tomorrow. Both deliveries. Fine. I’ll get up, get dressed and make my grocery list. If they haven’t arrived by the time I’m ready to run my errands, I’ll bring the dogs inside and they can drop the packages off inside the fence. My son said that the packages will be heavy so at least one if not both trucks will need to pull down the drive unless they have hand trucks.

We spend a lot of time waiting. We wait in lines shopping. We wait at traffic signals. We wait at restaurants. We wait for packages. We wait for phone calls, for meetings to begin, for meetings to end, for the work day to end. The list is infinite.

Currently we are waiting on this pandemic situation to end. Waiting for the world to return to some form of normalcy and calm. We are waiting for the conspiracies, the false information, the threats to stop and truth to overcome. We are waiting for a world seemingly gone mad to calm down.

There are those of us who are waiting for our life to return to a position of what we remember. Whether it is with a job, health, finances, social, overcoming grief, break up. We wait, and we work on helping resolve the issues. By sending out resumes, filling out applications, exercise, eating better, finding ways to safely be with others.

Ever so often, someone will come along and tell the world that the end of times will be on such and such a day. Look to the sky for the return of the King. They have translated secret passages, they have worked it out mathematically, they have sleuthed it out some how. Then, when it doesn’t happen, hasn’t happened, they start back peddling. Some have come back later and said, I was mistaken, I didn’t do this or that or the other thing correctly. The new date when the world will end is definitely without doubt, such and such. I had someone years ago tell me that Christ had already returned and we were in the midst of the tribulation. This was twenty or so years ago and since the Tribulation period will only last seven years, I think they were incorrect.

Jesus the Christ Himself said, no one knows but the Father when the time will be for His return. Not  the angels, not even Jesus Himself, only the Father. So for man to say he knows by this or that or some other manner, is foolishness.

 We don’t know when He will return. What do we do in the mean time, while we wait? This is just one site, use your favorite search engine for more information on what to be doing while waiting. Ask fellow Believers. Ask those you know who know the Bible, and live the Word spiritually and not in earthly, twisted ways. Listen to God’s Word, not man’s. We should live to please God, not man.

We wait. We watch. We live our lives in a way that is firm in Belief, strong in conviction, built on love. Love, for all. Sharing with all. Waiting, with a heart built on the faith and hope of what is to come. Not running out and stocking up on supplies. Not gathering ammunition for stock piled weapons. Not barricading doors of a secure fortress. We wait. We watch. We share what we know. The love of Christ. The love for all. He came for us all once, He will return for us all when the time is right.

    Yes, waiting for things to, maybe not go back to how they used to be….I’d like them to be better than they used to be. 🙂

    I am not waiting for thing to go back like they use to be. History has proved our way of life keep evolving, changes a lot slowly unless a dramatic event such as Covid happens. Then we get thrown for a loop and try hard to keep our selves steady wishing for the comfortable to come back. I don’t think that comfort is coming back…I do believe the Lord is coming back, but have no clue as to when. I expect it every day and at the end of the day I look for it happen tomorrow. blessing.

  3. I can relate to the waiting. I sent a piece of mail overseas almost three months ago. Still waiting for it to arrive.
