This too shall pass.. [wait it out]

[Psalm 51:6] Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
   you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

[Psalm 51:10] Create in me a pure heart, O God,
   and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

[Psalm 51:12] Restore to me the joy of your salvation
   and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Search me God...
shine a light on all the dark corners of my heart.
Use this week to refine and cleanse me.

[Psalm 27:1] The LORD is my light and my salvation,
   whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life,
   of whom shall I be afraid?

[Psalm 27:13 & 14]I remain confident of this:
   I will see the goodness of the LORD
   in the land of the living. 
   Wait for the LORD;
   be strong and take heart
   and wait for the LORD.

I love this verse, today I was reading Psalm 27 for part of the 21 Day Fast Scripture reading. I totally forgot that these verses were in there. Last spring I was part of a ladies Bible study with a group of friends. We were going through the Fruits of the Spirit. Obviously this was a verse I had found about "goodness" and it meant so much to me. Then after awhile I forgot about it.
After searching through some comentaries I figured out the meaning of this verse.
To break it down, the author was realizing that he would see God's goodness on this side of heaven. That no matter what he was going through,
God's goodness, love & faithfulness WOULD.NOT.FAIL.
God's goodness, love & faithfulness WOULD.NOT.FALL. under his struggles, problems, frustratiosn & trials. His struggles, problems, frustrations & trials would FALL under God's goodness, love & faithfulness. God's goodness, love & faithfulness will far OUTLAST his struggles, problems, frustrations & trials.
Oh how encouraging this is. I needed this reminder.
Wait on the the Lord, be strong, take heart & wait on the Lord.
This too shall pass.

every person He puts into our lives,
