And so we wait…
I’m in a season of waiting right now, and it isn’t easy. As humans, we live for instant gratification. We want what we want, and we want it now. Unfortunately, that’s not how life works. And as a believer, I know that’s not how God works.
Trusting in His Will is hard sometimes. I wish I was a good and faithful servant, accepting of the fact that my timing and God’s timing aren’t always in sync. But the truth is, I’m just not always that way. There’s this thing that I want more than anything in the world right now. And the longer I go without getting it, the more doubtful and frustrated I become. But the more I try to control, the less control I have. I can waste all this time and energy trying to make it come to be, but in the end, my efforts won’t matter.
In my heart, I know it’s all in His timing. But that still doesn’t take away the pain in the waiting.
So what do you do? What can I do? All I know is to just stay faithful. As faithful as I can, at least. I use this period of waiting as a testimony to the blessings he will one day bring. But here’s the thing—his blessings might look different than the blessings I expect. Let me say that again. His Will for my life might not match my expectations.
But if we trust in him, we know that his sovereign Will will far exceed any of our human desires. So I’ll wait. And I’ll wait some more. And I’ll trust in his word that He promises me good, so long as I remain obedient and faithful.
