God is telling me to wait, and I hate it.
There are so many things I want to do right now, but I can sense God telling me everyday that it’s not the right time for any of these things.
I’ve always struggled with this. For my entire life, I’ve grabbed the reins, taken control, and tried to do things my way. I’ve made a mess of things more times than I can count in the process.
Here’s something I need to be reminded of daily, and maybe you do too: God wants us to be happy. He wants all of our dreams to come true. He is constantly working on our behalf, BUT “hurry up” is not part of His plan. I guarantee it.
If we want to work with Him, and if we want our hopes and dreams to become reality, we have to accept His time frame. We can’t force our will and expect things to work out.
Letting go of the impatience and desire to have our own way is HARD, but there is beauty in the waiting. There is beauty and joy in letting go and having faith that things will work out the way they’re supposed to, even if it’s not RIGHT NOW.
So for now, I will go to work. I will be thankful for my old, wood paneled house. I will jump for joy when someone orders a single tee shirt from my website. I will wait and trust that great things are coming, and I hope you will too.
