I don’t know about you dear reader, but for me, waiting always seems easier if I know what I’m waiting for. If I know what to search my horizon for each day, then I can wait with a least some composure and patience.
How about you?
I mean, think about it. Isn’t waiting a little easier if you can scan the horizon of your life for something specific?
My most difficult waiting happens when I am waiting “in the dark.”
When my waiting is just for “the next thing.” Whatever that is? Then my waiting tends to become restless.
I begin to pace in my restricted place.
I sense change coming, but I’m not sure what kind of change.
I wonder, “Will I like this? Can I handle it? Will this thing I’m waiting for, make my life better, or swamp my boat?”
I don’t know, maybe I’m the only one who feels this way.
Bet this kind of restless-waiting is as common as dirt.
Thanks to you Habakkuk, your statement for today really helps. Especially the part where God says:
⦁ The things He plans won’t happen right away
⦁ Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches for fulfillment
⦁ Don’t despair… be patient… They won’t be overdue a single day!
I may not know what is in tomorrow, but I know who holds all my tomorrow’s in His plan.
That calms my restlessness.
The DREAM~MAKER’S Promise:
For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But in the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV
A Caterpillar’s Prayer:
Everywhere I look, everything I read, everyone I listen to, seems to be saying the same thing: Delay is not denial. God, why don’t I learn? Why don’t I change? In my head, I know that waiting on You and Your plan is the smartest thing anyone can do… so why is it, that doing the “smart” thing… hurts. so. darn. much?
