Wating for the Shoe to Drop

Are you tired of waiting for the next thing to happen? 

Me too.

This year has been one of waiting. We wait for Covid-19 to end. We wait for summer to be over. We wait for the election to get here. We'll maybe be done with all the politic rhetoric. We wait for riots and looting to end. 

On a personal note, perhaps we wait for a loved one to call. Or get well. Or visit.

Where's the other shoe? We need two to walk through the ordeals we face.  But alas. We only have one shoe. We're waiting for the other one to drop.

What will it bring with it when it drops? More of the same?

In this day of waiting, it's easy to become discouraged and feel hopeless.

There are Scriptures about waiting.  How about this one? 

Psalms 27:13-14. I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord. NIV

God has over twenty Scriptures about waiting for Him. He knows it's difficult, but He likes us to walk in patience.

He patiently waits for us to know Him. To trust Him. To love Him. Why shouldn't we wait for Him?

Scriptures are encouraging while we face bad times and wait for them to change. Maybe they'll get better, or maybe they'll get worse. Either way, I want two shoes to walk through these days.

Trouble with Amazon

I usually tell people to go to Amazon and type in Gay N. Lewis and they will find my books.

They haven't been there lately.

You'll see gay novels and info about the gay community.

But what happened to my books?  They are scattered around on Amazon, but they don't appear altogether. I just  found out you must use quotation marks around my name. Type in "Gay N. Lewis" I hope the additional quotation marks do the job.

You can find them on B&N.  Try the Barnes and Noble site. I want you to chuckle with Sarah's antics. We all need that, right?

I'm on other online booksellers also.

Hope for the Weary

Are you tired of hoping circumstances will get better? Want Ole Corona Covid -19 to go away?  Wish your kids would get a grip and get off drugs? Are you exhausted from job hunting? Maybe you're bone weary as you endure a sour relationship.

Don't you wish you had someone to turn to? 

Friends will help. They may offer a phrase that hits the spot and makes you feel better. 

Reading your Bible is a great comfort. When you are weary, look up the word or related words in the concordance and see what the Word says about exhaustion and weariness.

Elijah, with God's help, performed mighty miracles, but afterward, he was worn out. He feared for his life and ran until he could run no more. He prostrated himself under a tree and asked God to let him die.

An angel came along and said, "here old boy, eat this and take a nap."

In other words, God knew he needed physical, mental and emotional rest. Food and sleep made him feel better and his hope returned.

Hope and faith are the glues that keep us together. We must not give them up. Never give them up!  

Eat and rest. It's good for you. Think of your blessings. That helps too.

Always remind yourself there's a better day coming.

Hope is faith on steroids.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what de do not see. Heb: 11:1 NIV.
