Living in the Valley of Wait

Living in the Valley of Wait

September 25, 2015

"Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you." Psalm 33:20-22 (ESV)

We were already late.

I could feel tension building in the back of my neck as I stared at the long road ahead and wondered, Will we make it in time?

My son’s basketball game was starting in 30 minutes, and we were still 20 minutes away from the gym.

The team was counting on Carson to show up and play. Carson was counting on me to get him there on time.

Then it happened. Up ahead I could see the stream of cars slowing down. Within seconds we were forced to a snail’s pace and then a complete stop.

Noooo! Not now. Not today!

With a heavy, nervous sigh I glanced at my watch, hoping the time would miraculously come to a standstill like my car. But it didn’t and as the clock ticked, I began to panic.

Minutes seemed like hours as we waited … and waited … and waited. There must be an accident up ahead. Maybe a car broke down. Surely it’s something major to cause all this traffic on a Saturday morning!

Finally, the traffic started moving again. I kept looking ahead waiting to discover the reason for all the road congestion. But nothing materialized, and my panic turned to frustration.

I wanted to see a tangible reason — something to blame — for all that waiting, waiting, waiting. It’s ironic how my life can be that way sometimes.

I’ll be moving along, making progress in my journey, when all of a sudden things come to a standstill. But instead of slowly maneuvering my way through temporary traffic, I find myself parked in the proverbial Valley of Wait.

Not seeing a tangible reason or knowing how long I’ll be there can be frustrating.

Selfishly, I want immediate answers, and I’m quick to ask, "Why Lord? I don’t understand."

It’s in those situations and difficult seasons of life that I need to remember the truth of today’s key verse: "Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you" (Psalm 33:20-22).

As my soul waits in the valley, I am not alone. God is there. Helping me. Shielding me. Protecting me.

As my soul waits in the valley, I can experience His gladness instead of my own frustration. Simply hearing the whispers of His holy Name fills my heart with joy.

As my soul waits in the valley, I can trust in God’s goodness by remembering His faithfulness in seasons past.

As my soul waits in the valley, I have hope despite all that’s around me, because God’s unfailing love rests upon me.

It’s taken me a long time to learn this valuable lesson: I would rather live in the Valley of Wait with Jesus than journey through life on my own.

For my soul can only find true rest in His presence. Where He is … that’s where I want to be.

I may never discover all the reasons why I needed to tarry there, but with God by my side, I’ll know it was meant to be.

Heavenly Father, I love You and I’m so grateful You love me, too. I never want to be apart from Your presence. I want to experience every moment of my life with You, even if that means living in the Valley of Wait. You are everything to me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
Lamentations 3:25, "The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." (ESV)

Isaiah 30:18, "Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him." (ESV)

  1. Thank you

  2. Thank you so much for this. I am stuck in a season of wait. Not knowing what to do, my time is spent reading, listening, writing and reflecting on who the Lord is and what that means for my life. I was so encouraged by your words. Thanks

  3. Thank you so much, in my season of wait, i will trust in the Lord and not on my own understanding

  4. It’s always trying ‘this period of wait’ but I trust that it’s only a matter if time. It’s not so easy to stand.

  5. Thank You- my daughter graduated college in August and has been applying for jobs ever since-She is getting frustrated as am I . This verse hits home- The Lord knows when and where he wants her to be and is protecting her and shielding her until the right position becomes available-
    have reposted on her Facebook page and apologized to her for being so frustrated.

    • I understand your frustration. I was downsized from the job I had and have not been able to find new work.
      I pray and pray and try not to get discouraged. During these times I have found it helps to focus on the Lord’s attributes. Keep meditating on His Word. He will provide the grace to get through. He knows our needs before we ask.

  6. God does ask for our obedience and patience, He rewards those acts of love we give back to Him. Our Father is the only all knowing, which means He is on time every time with all in our lives. We should rejoice in the waiting! For I truly believe He has a wonderful greater plan than when we try to rush it ourselves?

  7. True story: I was in traffic, late for a meeting. The light went yellow, and I was tempted to push on through. I stopped and watched as a dump truck lumbered up the hill on the other side of the intersection. A boulder bounced out of the truck and landed exactly where I would have been without the wait.

    Now when I linger in the valley of wait, I wonder if God is protecting me from falling rocks I don’t see. And I am grateful.

  8. Beautiful, thank you for blessing us! I try to remember this when I find myself “waiting” for even the smallest things – to practice patience, to be mindful that God is working on my behalf. He has never failed us!

  9. Leah dear, your words diagraming the Scriptures were so appropriate for me. In watching a movie with my husband as I saw the heroines struggle I found myself praying for a dimension of my personality and character that I do not like. When used for the Lord in prayer awesome, but when I’ve used it in everyday conversations comes across as feisty. How to balance being a survivor, a victor without causing an uncomfortable concern with others? Without sharing your entire life story ! How to voice gratefulness with humor, grace and joy! I may not be athletic but I have climbed my own Everests to the peak and came down successfully! This week as we observed Yom Kippur, saw and heard first time Dr. Ruth share her story of separation in 1939, from her father at the Nazi’s hands, then her mother and grandmother as she was placed on a Kindertransport from Germany to Switzerland. Never to see any family again. She was 10! Yet Dr Ruth personifies joy! The program ended with her singing a child’s fun song with Bob Chapin, “there are 2 kinds of llamas, papas & mamas, who don’t wear pajamas and that’s why there’s llamas”…a song about animals 2 by 2 and the family of Noah who “waited” on the Lord. Sometimes we forget how the patriarchs of faith had their wait time too!

    Thank you, bless you and how did Carson do with his team?

    • Margaret, I hope Yon Kippur was significantly special for you this year. I was in Israel last week/weekend and flew back to the US the day before Yon Kippur. So wish I could have stayed 2 extra days to experience it in Jerusalem.
      I pray you continue to share your story in the love Christ and the fruit of the Holy Spirit. That is where our joy, peace, kindness and gentleness flows from. Carson’s team won their game that day! Yes, God’s blessing are infinite and His grace is endless.

  10. I needed this so much today. God is giving me guidance through this devotional.
    If anyone reads this today Please pray for me! I am in a “waiting period” I become so discouraged at times. I really have a hard time in trusting in God’s perfect timing and his unconditional love.

    • Hope, I’m praying for you today:
      Heavenly Father, we thank you that each season of waiting is never wasted when we surrender it to You. Remind Hope of Your faithfulness and help her to trust You regardless of the circumstances that surround her today. Replace her discouragement with courageous faith. Replace her sadness or anxiety with Your joy and peace. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

  11. Thank you!! We are in the this valley with my husbands stress test. My husbands peace in this new delay was such a great surprise, I know that came from my Heavenly Father. I don’t like waiting, this is hard lesson. Yet I am drawing from my husband because he is the one hurting so as his wife I have to be calm and suporrtive knowingg he is calm and ok with it I can be to. Waiting is tough!

  12. my valley of wait is my husbands health. and to see the future for my adult children.

  13. odunola osunji says:

    Great message, Although waiting can sometimes be frustrating in all honesty. But when we understand the word God better and know understand what it means when we say we love God. That Love will keep us calm without nervous in d midst of waiting. That sincere trust, believe and decision to Love him in d beginning will torment all d fears,doubt that will come during waiting moment. You know what I beleive “when there is no story to tell like even those who shared all this daily devotional S. There is not glory.” So as a true child of God what you encounter during the waiting moment is to encourage another daughter of the most high. God bless us all. Amen.

  14. Good Morning….i appreciate the story too….but as fellow reader Margret asked…did you guys make it to the game on time & how did it go…..I know when you submit these stories to us your readers they are given to guide us & give us lessons to learn from & help us thru rough patches that many times mirror the readers’ life experiences….but as well…you guys are gracious enough to put your life
    experineces into print for us….which we appreciate…but many times leave us hanging
    as to the end of the story, what happened..or how did the story end….we are as much interested in the story you are sharing w/us as we are in the story ending….@ least i always am…several times you guys don’t tell us how it ends up…we would love to know……thanks…..

    have a great & blessed day…………….kathy wyg

    • Kathy, we made it to the game (only a few minutes late) and Carson’s team won the game. We were so excited and I used the opportunity to share with Carson ( on our ride home) how God makes all things work out – despite life’s many roadblocks – for our good and His glory. I love how our Lord continues to teach us spiritual truths through everyday circumstances.

      Thank you so much for asking and it delights my heart that you and Margret wanted to know the outcome of family’s story. God bless you both!

  15. Gods daughter says:

    Thank u Lord for your words.. Just when we need confirmation, you are there❤️

  16. Terry Talberr says:

    Thank you for this. It was much needed. I have been praying for my daughter that is in the wrong church teaching she does not need her family. I am waiting for God to show me that either I am wrong or that He would take blinders off and so her and her husband the way. I want my grandchild to kmow me and God’s truth not man’s version of what he pieces together foe what he wants. I am waiting on you Lord.

  17. Thank you! The Lord is so gracious to keep reminding of His Word to me to wait. In my current situation, He is giving me only one small step at a time and after each step reaffirming His word to me to then WAIT. I just want my situation to be over ad done with, not relishing in the beauty of the process of the work He is accomplishing. THIS TIME RIGHT NOW is where His best for me is, I need to stop seeking and wishing away this time and the tools of His purposes and instead just thrive and bloom right here, right now, right where He has me.
    Thank you so very much!

  18. Thank you for your words today. My husband is the pastor of a church that just about closed its doors. Yet we felt God calling us there for a reason. We visited every house it seemed in the community. Prayed so hard for wisdom in why we were called to this place. What seemed like a lifetime of waiting God finally came on the scene and has been blessing us emencely!!!!! God is good and always on time.

    • Amen! Kelli, I’m praying for you and your husband this morning – asking God to flourish your church and bring the broken in spirit to your doorsteps, so they can receive God’s mercy, grace and healing.

  19. I needed this and so does my family ! We need to put GOD first in our lives with him all things are possible.If we continue to dwell on the bad things we are letting the Devil win and there is no place for him in my life my home or my families lives or home.

  20. It is amazing how God sends just the right life lesson at just the right time! Isn’t he an awesome God! When things align just perfectly in life some call it coincidence my friend calls it “God showing out.”
    Our son was given a diagnosis of cancer 2 days ago. We are waiting on an appointment to hear recommendations for treatment. The waiting is almost as difficult as the diagnosis. This devotional was just the reminder that I needed today. I shared it with my husband. Thank you Lord for carrying us through the Valley of Wait because we know that we will be stronger and more faithful when you lift us up on the mountain top.

    • Edna, I’m praying for your family today, but especially your precious son as you wait for test results. Believing in God’s healing power to touch and restore every part of his body – from the top of his head to the tips of his toes – in Jesus’ Name. And that every part of his body lines up according to God’s Word that says by the stripes Jesus bore we are healed.

  21. Great words that I really needed to hear as my season of wait keeps extending which has left me frustrated and frankly exhausted. It goes well with yesterday’s’ message from Lysa and her counsel to seek perspective over answers.

  22. Thank you Leah for your encouraging words……..I have been in a waiting season for almost 5 years and I’m getting a little exhausted…….however, I have to think to myself “40 years in the desert or almost 5″………so, I have to literally take one day at a time and sometimes one hour at a time. During my waiting period I have chose to have alone time with God early in the morning reading my Bible, praying and just being still in the quietness so I can hear God speak to me. I also enjoy the incredible song by John Waller “While I Am Waiting”

    I’m waiting, I’m waiting on You Lord
    And I am hopeful, I’m waiting on You Lord
    Though it is painful, but patiently I will wait

    And I will move ahead bold and confident
    Taking every step in obedience

    While I’m waiting I will serve You
    While I’m waiting I will worship
    While I’m waiting I will not faint
    I’ll be running the race even while I wait

    I’m waiting, I’m waiting on You Lord
    And I am peaceful, I’m waiting on You Lord
    Though it’s not easy no, but faithfully I will wait
    Yes, I will wait

    And I will move ahead bold and confident
    Taking every step in obedience

    While I’m waiting I will serve You
    While I’m waiting I will worship
    While I’m waiting I will not faint
    I’ll be running the race even while I wait

    I will move ahead bold and confident
    I’ll be taking every step in obedience, yeah

    While I’m waiting I will serve You
    While I’m waiting I will worship
    While I’m waiting I will not faint

    And I will serve You while I’m waiting
    I will worship while I’m waiting
    I will serve You while I’m waiting
    I will worship while I’m waiting
    I will serve You while I’m waiting
    I will worship while I’m waiting on You Lord

    I will serve You while I’m waiting
    I will worship while I’m waiting
    I will serve You while I’m waiting
    I will worship while I’m waiting

    • Lisa, thank you for sharing the lyrics to this song. There is so much truth in every single line and I’m actually downloading it from iTunes while I’m typing this comment. 🙂 Bless you, Friend.

      • Bless you as well…..I thoroughly enjoy all your devotionals as well as the complete Proverbs 31 staff. You all are amazing writers and also enjoying First 5 🙂

  23. My family is currently in the Valley of Wait. God had been encouraging me to enjoy this time. Thank you for this encouragement.

  24. Leah: Thank you so much for sharing this devotion today! I needed it and I forwarded it to my sister as well. She was most appreciative as she needed it too. Thank you again!

  25. Good morning Leah and thank you so much for these encouraging words!! My family is in a season of wait for so many things right now. Believing in healing from cancer for my precious sister, looking for a home church and awaiting the arrival of 3 precious babies!! God has continued to be faithful in walking with us in this time of concern, change and joy!! We seek Him for all things and rejoice in his comfort and peace!! I am praying that we all grow in him in this season of wait and remember that he loves us so very much!! Blessings to you dear sister in Christ!

  26. When you are in the valley of separation and the 6 month agreement is over and you are still not back home with your family, the wait can be excruciating at times, AND, God is faithful and helps with the waiting by showing you more of Himself and His will for your life. I could use some prayer in this area. I am learning and growing in more ways than I could ever imagine with a new support system that has been life support directed by a God who loves me for who I am.

  27. Thank you for today’s word. I live in a season of wait. For 5 years I hated where God had moved us to with my husband’s job and it caused depression for me. God knew what he was doing. During that 5 years, we were close enough for my Dad to still see my children. He passed 2 years ago. Right after that, we were to transfer to a place that I had prayed to be for almost 11 years. My husband had to go ahead until our home sold. Before we all got to be together, he was transferred to another location. We have been at our new place almost 18months and thought this would be our permanent place. We found out last week, that the account we are at is closing out and we are once again waiting and praying for God to put us where he can use us. Sometimes the waiting can be frustrating but we are looking at it with excitement as we know our Lord has great things in store. Thank you again for your encouraging words.

  28. Joanna Kearns says:

    The biggest struggle I have during the valley of waiting is wanting everything to be fixed right now that includes having all of my own needs met my way my time and at my convience.

  29. Oh, my Word!!! As I prayed this morning, I ask God to give me a word. He gave me the word WAIT.. I am not sure yet why that was His word for me this morning, but I researched all of the verses that have the word WAIT in them, read them, and typed them for my prayer wall. Then I logged on the computer and this was my first email. I got chills. I am not sure what God has in store for me this day, this week…but I know He wants me to learn something special about waiting. Thank you so much for this devotional! Praise God for His Word!!!

  30. Well familiar with the valley of wait. My niece & I have been meeting for prayer regularly, asking God for spiritual revival in our family, her parents, my kids, my 88 yr old Dad etc…..we have been praying together for 6 yrs. we have seen answers in our marriages, in my grand children, but still waiting on more. God is good, all the time God is good.

  31. Raymond cason says:

    This is a great article thanks for sharing. Oh did you make it to the ball game?

  32. Thank you so much for this devotional. I am in the valley of wait. I plan on reading this everyday and asking God what he wants me to learn. THANKS!

  33. Thank you for that word. I am in that valley of waiting but I know thst God is truly changing my heart. God is getting rid of a lot of junk I have been holding on to and when God sends my husband to me it will be his timing. I’m learningg to trust and believe in his word that he has everything in control and has good things planned for me.

  34. Thanks, I really need to learn how to wait in God, and not in my own circumstances, and when I get frustrated to wait, that I will it’s in God’s timing and not mind.

  35. During this time God is assuring me that when no one else shows up to help, God does. I can always trust Him to come through when others fail me.

  36. Thank you, I need to learn to wait on The Lord!

  37. Mae Heininge says:

    Thank for this reminder. It was needed more than I was aware. Sometimes I forget that God brings good in my life in his timing, not mine. He has been so faithful and yet I fail to remember becoming so engrossed in daily tasks. Thank you again.

  38. Loved the message and see the analogy but please tell me, did you make it to the game on time?

  39. I am currently in the season of wait as well.. Waiting on The Lord to bless me with a husband. I feel so defeated and frustrated as I have been praying and waiting for some time now. I know that this season is not in vain… God is not only building me up to be the wife he wants me to be but He is also teaching me how to trust in HIM with all of my heart and soul. Thank you for this devotion, God Bless.

  40. Once again God provides the perfect devotion and information to encourage me. I am an a period of waiting. Trying to find a new job after an unexpected downsizing at the organization it worked at. I have been trying and praying, praying and trying to find a new job. It has been months. God has been drawing me closer to Him during this time. I have found I need to Trust in HIM. The enemy tries to discourage me. I Trust in God. He consistently provides encouraging devotions each day. Take a wild guess what the sermon was about on Sunday?
    TRUST!
    There are couple things that took place that some may say are coincidences. I say they are sweet signs from God that He will provide.
    The week that I lost my job my husband and I went for a walk to discuss our next steps on what we were going to do to get through this. Prior to this happening, we had to have our basement repaired for water damage and the landscaping around the perimeter of the house needed to be removed. Originally we were going to purchase new shrubs. Now that was not an option. We talked about how we could move some perennials around. My husband mentioned he would like to purchase some hostas when things got better. We rounded the corner on the next street and someone at set some ready to plant hostas they had split from their garden by the mailbox with a sign that said FREE HOSTAS!/ I took this as a sign that the Lord would provide and get us through this. (we did plant the hostas and I am reminded each time I look at them how sweet the Lord is). I am still looking for a job. Today the toaster oven died and the same day we got a notice of a credit on our electric bill.
    I love the Lord these may seem like small things but they mean everything to me. I know the Lord will provide the right job at the right time. I draw near to Him and He comforts me. I Love the Lord more than I can say.

  41. michelle estrada says:

    Nice article!!!

  42. I feel like I’ve been living in the Valley of Wait for 5 years while my health has gone up and down. I am learning that I need to learn to step out in faith because I cannot simply sit around waiting for good health.
    I hope to become a woman of greater faith in God and a willingness to act when I hear Gods call.

  43. I need prayers please. My daughter’s father has come back into the picture. She has never met him. I am a single mom. The situation between me and her dad is extremely complex. I need God to intervene in this situation. Some of my godly friends think I should leave him alone, others think I am doing the right thing by trying to have him be in her life. I am not sure and feel torn. One moment I am sure and have peace, then the next I doubt. It is a situation that isn’t a quick fix or an easy or pretty fix. Please pray hard for us.

  44. This so resonated with me…..I needed to know that God has a purpose in this waiting……I just need to trust HIM. Blessings to you for your words of encouragement ….I needed it.

  45. I am waiting for a husband and to be a mother…passions God brought me into this world with. I pray that he will deliver!

  46. The Valley of Waiting serves as a real test of our faith. I know in myself, I would try to “fix” negative situations, but in the end, there would be no spiritual growth. I need to totally rely on the Lord for His perfect timing in fulfilling my heart’s desire. My husband needs the Lord and I have prayed for over 20 years that he would open his heart to Jesus. At first I tried to get him involved with my Christian friends, but he seems resistant to their fellowship. I now just try to be quiet and trust the Lord to use my words and actions to bring him into God’s Kingdom. Waiting is hard, but I feel it has strengthened me and given me a strong desire to be persistent and press on.

  47. Linda Goins says:

    I have been in “the waiting period” for a lengthy time, but God is faithful & I continue to trust Him for i know He has a plan & purpose for my life. Just sometimes it’s hard to understand why He is silent for so long but as I look back i can see how He has been using this time to use every day to strengthen me, grow me in my relationship with Him. Thank you for the words of encouragement in today’s devotional! So timely for me! May God continue to bless you as you reach out to women through this ministry.

  48. We’re in the valley of wait and wondering what Gods going to do or who he is going to use. The company my husband has worked at for the last 8 years can’t make payroll and we haven’t had a paycheck in 3 weeks. We’re really struggling and are behind on bills. Out landlord threatened to evict us today. We have a toddler. I said to the landlord do you not want me to buy diapers and food ? My husband isn’t saved so he doesn’t have faith like I do that God will help us and not allow us to be hungry,without oil ,or food, God is good and I’m waiting

  49. I am in a valley of wait and been there before. This time is different, My on and off again boyfriend is going to propose to me and I am really anxious and scared. I am not sure that this is what GOD has planned for me. We are not equally yoked. He believes in Jesus but does not talk the walk. I am decidcately to life as a disciples for Jesus. Also my family and church family has told me it’s not a good idea. I have prayed and meditated for an answer.

    • Kendra,
      Your note indicates that God has already answered your question. You said “we are not equally yoked”. He said, “Do not be unequally yoked”. The question isn’t what God’s will is, but rather are you going to obey?
      IT is hard because you love this man. Do you want to be married to a man who does not share your desire to serve Jesus? Your decision will determine the validity of your comment to be a dedicated disciple of Jesus.
      Since you have continued this relationship up to this point I am guessing you will accept his marriage proposal, but just in case I am not too late, I will attest to the fact that staying single is far better in the long run than marriage to an uncommitted Christian. If you think he will become one why not wait and see.

  50. Who do I want to become? Ha! Patient ! Much more Patient! Thanks be to my wonderful Teacher!

  51. I have and wait for him. Many days are difficult I find sometimes something that I want seems to take forever but I know it’s all in his time this is awesome passes to remind me that I need to wait and it’s in his time she knows what’s best

  52. When things like that happen to us, and we are delayed or have to wait, I always tell myself that It is for a Reason. God is delaying me to keep me safe from something. It helps me keep things in perspective.

  53. Thank you for this devotional. My military husband of over 20 years has severe PTSD. Our whole family is in a season of wait as he works with doctors to heal. We don’t know if he will ever be able to emotionally connect to the family again. The kids and I are heartbroken for him … For the loss of what we had … Waiting for an unknown, unsure future … I needed this devotional very much today. Thank you. <

  54. Thank you for your devotion. I am living in the valley of wait for a close relative who is an alcoholic and I have been praying for 3 years that God would come into his life and that he would stop drinking. It is a bad situation and I wait and wait for my prayers to be answered. This wait is very stressful, and I get discouraged.

  55. Don’t stop praying Elizabeth X I will pray for you too xxx

  56. You have verbalized the words of my heart. Thank-you. “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus”

  57. My time in The Valley of Wait I believe God is teaching me to be patient & how to trust Him. I feel the wait has been so long that I begin to wonder is it me? Am I the reason things are not changing? I am being obedient in what I know to do.

  58. Syrene Sabulao says:

    Since 2013, I had been switching from company of four (4) to find a happy/healthy working environment. The search and waiting continues and I completely trusts God as He is with this journey. I ended up reading articles from Proverbs 31 Ministry. Highlighting to me : ”Bringing God’s peace, perspective, and purpose to women of today.” This is very refreshing, the write-ups shared of God’s story in every woman who contributes, the same shares the hope and encouragement.

  59. I’m waiting on God to heal my marriage. He told me he’s not in love with me a year ago. I have begged God to help us-help my husband find love for me once again. Nothing is better yet. It has made me seek God with a passion. But my marriage is still not good. Pls if you can pls pray for us.

  60. Rachelle Burrell says:

    I just wanted to thank you, Leah, for this devotion. It was truly God-inspired and was sent to me at just the right time. My husband and I have both been waiting for any employment or a better employment situation to pan out for months now. With this devotion and daily Bible reading was able to understand that this isn’t the “valley of darkness”, but just the “valley of wait” and that God hasn’t abandoned us in our time of need and there is purpose for us just where we are at.

    Thank you so much for Gods Word this morning. It touched me right where I needed it most. It seems my life has be nothing but a waiting game but I know in my head that is not true. I am just one of those people that is too impatient! But, your devotional really helped me to center on what God is doing in me…and give the future back to God. My stress level just went down 50 points! Thanks!!!
