on this eve

On this eve of waiting and wondering, i have this peace that whatever comes tomorrow, He is in it and so it will be good.  That, of course, doesn't mean the answer will be 'yes, you get the interview', but it does mean that what comes will be what gives Him most glory and is best for me ultimately.
I thought of that verse today that says, "Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength", and while there are many applications to that verse, one thing God brought to light was simply how tiring it is when you don't wait for Him.  I think of an image of pushing with all my might against the thick, iron gate of tomorrow (which i am, of course powerless to even budge) and how much energy i waste in doing that.  Then i think of setting up camp beside the gate, building a fire for warmth and eating and taking rest - waiting on the Lord -who already dwell sin tomorrow as He dwells in today, and how renewed and refreshed i feel from doing that.  IT's so silly to think how we can read God telling us "with out Me you can do nothing!" and somehow hearing that as ,'without me, you can't do some really big, challenging things, but for most other things you should be fine.'  Tomorrow and each day after Father, 'increase our faith.'
