Have you ever wanted something so badly but had to wait on God’s timing? I’m there now. And if I’m being honest, it is hard to keep plugging through every day because my heart is just not in the here and now. I know I still have to honor God with my work and attitude, but I have to admit, it can be a daily struggle to plow through.
I know that when He works it out, it will be even better than I could have imagined it to be. But the waiting is so hard. The uncertainty leads to frustration. The “ifs” bring doubts. The days slowly ticking by bring exhaustion.
There has to be a lesson for me in this time. There has to be something amazing on the other side. There has to be something I’m being prepared to face. But, not knowing what those things could be makes the waiting game so much harder. I wish I had a little I Dream of Jeannie power to cross my arms and nod my head and transport to where my heart is.
But I can’t. So I will wait. I will busy myself and prepare for what’s to come. I will not let the unknowns and what-ifs cause doubts and insecurities to seep in. I will not allow Satan to manipulate the situation. I will stand on God’s word and know that Matthew 6:28-30 is God’s promise that He will take care of everything.
For that I am grateful. I am grateful that in the wait I will lean on Him and find truth and comfort in His word. He is making all things new and I am excited for all the pieces to come together.
In the meantime, I will wait. I will rest in knowing what’s ahead. And I will be grateful He is in charge and not me. Because His ways and His timing are always perfect.
