Waiting on the Lord...

Sometimes I sit back and wonder if God works the same way with everyone else, or if it really is just us.  For the longest time we had our house on the market and we were just waiting for God to open or close doors.  For the time being we chose to take the house off the market, give it a break for the winter and see how we felt in the spring.  I really felt a sigh of relief...we were finished waiting for a while.  
Last week we got a phone call, that I was very thankful for, but the waiting and wondering began again.  I have no idea how things will pan out, but one thing I do know is that we are not done waiting.  I realized this morning that I have talked to him more in the past week than I did when things were quiet, and nothing was going on.  
Why is it that I put Him on the back burner when this are calm and quiet?  I'm sure thankful He doesn't bless based off of whether we respond perfectly or not or I would be living in a hole.  I'm thankful today that God is patient and merciful, regardless as to what I deserve.

Isaiah 40:31

31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

God is able to teach us much when we are willing to wait on Him and not go barging ahead in our own strength!
