The Waiting


I trust God.  

I know whatever He has planned for me will be amazing!  Whether it's what I'd hoped for or something better, I know He won't let me down.  Some days I just wish the waiting period wasn't so difficult.  I know it's going to be worth the endurance, but there are moments when some dreams seem so far away and times when I question if they will even come to pass.

Being okay with God's answers when we can't see the outcome isn't always easy.  God is very aware that we struggle with this.  Romans 12:12 says "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."  He asks us to focus on the blessing in our lives and find the good in every circumstance.  In even the worst scenario you can find something good if you look.  He asks us to be patient as we wait for what's to come and continue to speak with Him through prayer.  He can ease our worries and remove our fears if we ask for His help and give Him the honor, thanks, and praise He so deserves!

Will we get frustrated and anxious?  Sure.  We're human.  

Can God help us through those times?  Absolutely!  He can help us redirect our focus onto what's good, seek what we can learn from what we're going through, and keep faith in what He can and will do in our lives!
