Raise your hand if you like waiting.
(insert crickets) Yeah…
I don’t like waiting.
I also don’t like not knowing. I admit I’m a little nosy inquisitive. I like to know things!
And yet here I am: waiting and not knowing.
I claim I want to grow in my relationship with God and yet sometimes I forget that a part of any good relationship is trust.
Trust…Yuck! (Read about my trust issues in my first blog post “Icebreaker from Hell“.)
Do I trust God to do what He said? What He promised?
I do trust Him. I do!
But if I’m being honest, not knowing WHEN He’ll do it seems to be a problem for me.
And if that’s an issue, then I’m not trusting.
When we lack trust we attempt to take things into our hands and our false starts and faulty attempts are to no avail.
We get into get rich quick schemes, wrong relationships, and jobs we later find out we despise, all because we do not like to wait.
But what if we waited with grace?
What if we were able to wait without a care in the world because we just knew full well that we are on the right path and that at the proper time all things will be revealed?
What if we waited with joy and peace, completely unafraid at what our adverse circumstances were saying because we allowed our hearts to be joyFULL and our minds to have peace that surpasses our limited understanding?
What if we waited with grace?
How would our season of waiting change if we waited gracefully, in comparison to worrying, stressing, getting anxious, impatient and being doubtful?
I think our lives would look so much better with a lot more grace, don’t you think?
Commit and be intentional today; set your mind to wait with grace. God’s got you!
It’s coming. Don’t worry.
