Isaiah 64:4 KJV
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
Waiting is not usually a pleasant experience, but a necessary part of life. A life without anything to look forward to is a miserable one indeed. God gives us hope with His promises, both here and in the hereafter. “God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer).
