These birds sit on the wall in our family room. I wonder if they ever tire of the view. Apparently not because they have never told me so! It's interesting sometimes what people will say to us, and what they might leave out. Everyday my daughter comes in the door at 4:02, and I ask her the same question, "How are you, what happened in school" etc. Her reply is usually, " Nothing." But when my husband comes in, the real story comes out!

"For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him."  {Isaiah 64:4}

We are a generation of people that hate to wait. We want the Doctor to take us immediately when we walk in their door. We want our food to be prepared swiftly when we eat out. We get mad if we have to wait in line at a store. Why are we in such a rush?{ Just to let you know, New Yorkers are really bad at waiting.} Seriously, what are we going to miss? Why are we a generation that is anxious?

God tells us if we wait for Him, He will act on our behalf. I can't speak for you but I think His way have got to be 100 times better than my way. I tend to go around in circles but God, He cuts to chase.
He is direct, accurate, and loving all at the same time. He's not so concerned about hurting our feelings as He is about  us hurting our lives. His ways and good and right not at all easy to swallow, but always in our best interest. Dying to ourselves, our plans, and desires isn't easy, it's necessary, and from this is life everlasting. If you want to see God move, put Him first, and watch Him do the incredible!
