Lenten Midweek 4

“Good things come to those who wait.” We may have heard this old adage before and maybe even tried to convince ourselves it rings true for our lives.  Whether or not “good things” actually came to be in whatever situation of waiting, we are drawn today in light of Joseph to bring that phrase in the context of the Lord.  Joseph was made to wait.  He waited in prison while being falsely accused and seemingly forgotten.  It seemed like no “good things” would come out of the situation.  Yet he did not just wait in idleness and despair; he waited in faith and with hope and trust in the Lord.  Good things, greater eternal things, come to us as well when the foundation of our faithful waiting is found in Jesus.
