Blessings In Wait - Message Minute


**Mistake Notification**  Yes, I did rush things a bit when I mistakenly said, "My four YEAR old daughter!"  Lol, I'm rushing a little too much aren't I?  I hope you enjoyed the laugh!

Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ bringing you a message minute.  

I’m joined by a special guest this morning, my 4 day old daughter, Clara.  Clara, say something to the listeners, …..  Alright, maybe we’re rushing things a little bit.  Speaking of rushing, here’s something I wrote to encourage you just moments before Clara was born.  


I quote:  “I’m waiting in the hospital, in mere minutes we'll finally know all about our fourth child by seeing him/her face to face.  Yet I’m in no hurry.  It drives some crazy when we wait to find out the sex of the baby. If I had a nickel for every person that said, "Oh, I just can't wait"..... as if it wasn't really up to them.

Hurrying, rushing, peeking, pushing, these actions caused by impatience just wear us and others around out.  

Patiently waiting is on the Lord’s good timing is something we desperately need to learn, because we are blessed by it!  

"But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength.  - Isaiah 40:31
