God is bringing about a metamorphosis in our lives. He wants to change us from the inside out. Song of Solomon 4:16 Haggai 1:5-7 Gen. 28:10-16 Gen. 32:22-31 Eph. 4:21-24 Phil. 1:9-11 1 Chr. 12:32 Ecc. 3:1 Mt. 6:19-21 2 Cor. 4:18 Mt. 6:33 Mt. 22:37 Eph. 5:10 1 Cor. 15:58

Waiting on God is an act of expectation and anticipation. Matthew 11:28-30 NIV Psalms 23:1-6 ESV Isaiah 40:29-31 ESV ------ THE PULLEY - George Herbert - (1593-1633) When God at first made man, Having a glass of blessings standing by, "Let us," said he, "pour on him all we can. Let the world's riches,which disperséd lie, Contract into a span." So strength first made a way; Then beauty flowed, then wisdom, honor, pleasure. When almost all was out, God made a stay, Perceiving that, alone of all his treasure, Rest in the bottom lay. "For if I should," said he, "Bestow this jewel also on my creature, He would adore my gifts instead of me, And rest in Nature, not the God of Nature; So both should losers be. "Yet let him keep the rest, But keep them with repining restlessness. Let him be rich and weary, that at least, If goodness lead him not, yet weariness May toss him to my breast."
