While I'm waiting...

While I’m Waiting
John Waller

"The explanation for this song is simple, I was waiting on God and I was hurting when I wrote the lyrics. I’m sure there are few people who can’t relate to this song, but the important thing to remember while we’re waiting on God is to not just wait but to actively wait. Serve, worship and be faithful with what you have, where you are… “even while (you) wait.”

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait
I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait

I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You, Lord.

This song is so great! I first heard it while watching the new Sherwood Pictures film, Fireproof. It plays in the background while Fire Captain Caleb Holt continues to seek God and even as his wife continues to reject his attempts to love her.

It encourages me today to keep worshiping and serving while I wait on an answer from God concerning an important relationship that's currently in need of healing. God knows. He cares. He's working. I'm waiting...and worshiping.
