Ps 27:14, "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD."

The first time I came accross this verse, I remember that I was in tears.  I had been at a cross road in my life and my family was in trouble.  I don't believe I was yet baptised as a Christian.   In that momment, I opened my bible and that was the verse that jumped at me from the bottom of Ps. 27.  It was as though the Lord was comforting me and saying "don't cry my child, I'm here, just wait and I'll take care of it."  Now here I am, approximately Nine (9) years later, and he has surely taken care of it and alot of other things that came to pass. 
 
This verse is dear to me.  "Wait on the Lord." So many times we don't wait, instead, we wonder and worry.  Two bad "W" words.  "Be of good courage."  That means that we should not fear.  We should know that God will take care of whatever it is. "He shall strengthen thine heart."  Isn't that beautiful?  God shall strengthen our heart, even when our hearts are weak with pain.  He will strengthen us.  And the compelling end of the verse, commanding and giving instruction "Wait, I say, on the Lord."  That last portion needs no explaination.
 
Promise: "He shall strengthen thine heart."
 
As I usally say:
 
Think on these things (and don't forget to pass it on).
