Why am I shocked when God is God? I pray and ask for His affirmation in my life and then I act stunned that He responds as God.
Am I confusing you? Hang on, I have a point or three. God has a plan for my life and I know that . I ask Him for direction and when He makes the next step clear, I’m stunned. And then I want more.
I want God to show me His whole plan. I want to know EXACTLY how this whole thing will play out, but that’s not the way He works. I have to wait for the whole plan.
It’s in the waiting that I seek His will.
It’s in the waiting that He builds me up and prepares for the path that He has for me.
It’s in the waiting that I find His strength to take the next step that He will show me – when it’s time.
What about you? Are you waiting for that next step?
Ummm, yes! Think that He has me on permanent WAIT. Not really, but sometimes it seems permanent. Over and over in the past year, His words to me have been “Wait and trust.” So, I’m waiting and trusting!
Love your new look.
Right there beside you on the WAIT!
Oh the waiting.. so hard. God has me on a journey…not a fast one,one that takes a while and a lot of work. Many times I ask why…I get discourage and try to stop, but God finds a way to push me on to continue…I want to see what is at the end of the journey…will I really get to teach if I get my doctorate? will I get a job that will repay the thousands of dollars in student loan before I retire (I am a grandmother several times over for goodness sake, not a spring chicken here!)… this journey has been so much about trusting Him and knowing He has a plan for me, even at this age….but the waiting…..
Love the new look of your website!!
