Waiting requires a lot of patience. And not only does it require a lot of patience, but it will also take a lot of your time.
First, you will have to commit to putting in the time, which could lead to a beautiful outcome.
Waiting With Hope:
We visited a berry bush, but with no sign of birds. And furthermore, the ground beneath the tree was clean. So clearly the cleanliness signifies an absence of birds. But still, we sat waiting, as well as hoping, that perhaps our next visit will be more successful.
Finally success, you visit the bush and birds are feasting on the berries. In addition, they’re sparring with one another, and seem very happy to have found the berries. In spite of how long they took to find the berries, it is evident that they will be around for a while. And as long as the berries last.
Waiting For The Return Of Jehovah:
Besides waiting for your and my earthly joys, we should be patiently waiting for the return of Jesus Christ.
Just like you and I kept watch day after day for the birds, the same should be done in regard to waiting for Jesus.
Be Patient and Persevering
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. James 5:7
What To Do While Wating For The Return Of Jesus:
While waiting and watching for Jesus to return, it should be noted that all hearts should be cleansed and filled with His love. Not only should each of our hearts be filled with love, but the love should be constantly poured out to all humanity.
Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the Lord; But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; All those who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:34-36
