Is it ever easy to Wait? For Anything?
I think not.
I’m a Let’s-Get-Moving-And-Do-It-Now kinda gal, and My God is a – “Hmmmm, it needs just a little more time” kinda Father.
Requires much patience on my part – and serious trust. Not my strong suits.
I’m ready to jump out of the boat and fly across the water. He knows I need more time in the boat – cuz He knows that the slightest bump or roar of a wave – and I’ll be sinking in the water crying out for Him…
He knows me so well.
And I’m learning to appreciate – to savor – His Purpose & Timing in my life. I don’t always enjoy the waiting – but when He reveals “Now is the time” – oh what beauty and joy it brings.
God has been showing Himself to me this way – this year – more and more – through all the trials & storms in my life and in my family’s lives.
It doesn’t take the pain away.
It doesn’t erase the hurt.
But in fact, it does reassure me of just how trustworthy our great God is. And how much He loves us – so much that he allows us to wait (even restless in His hands) to show a greater Purpose in His perfect Timing.
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. ~ Jeremiah 29:11 (Amplified)
