Who likes to wait? Whether it’s for something trivial like a seat at a restaurant, or something more serious like the examples above, waiting is never an easy process.
To wait is especially difficult amidst this technological boom of our current generation. Advances in technology enable most aspects of life to run quickly, conveniently, according to our every whim. We connect with friends by the touch of a button. We use our phone not only to make phone calls, but also as a GPS, a camera, a computer and a boom box all rolled into one. We shop online, read books on tablets, deposit money into ATM machines, and drive cars with keyless entries. In a world like this, why would anyone ever need to wait for anything?
Yet life does bid us to wait. Sometimes it forces us, in fact, to wait for things that seem unbearable to wait for. So we grow weary. Sometimes we grow angry. Maybe, if we are honest, we can even become angry at God. “Where are you while I wait?” we question as we look above. “Can He hear me, or am I actually alone?” we wonder in the quiet of our prayers.
This concerned, active and powerful God promises us that good things come to those who wait on Him.
So, I am applauding everyone for a successful de-cluttering session and encouraging someone to wait patiently on God for a new beginning.
Many times when the word “de-clutter” comes up, we’re probably thinking about how to find time to clean up some messy space we’ve been ignoring for a while or probably getting rid of stuff not useful to us anymore, to create breathable space. But today, let’s apply that term to our personal life – emotionally – let’s do some de-cluttering with our mindset.
When we de-clutter issues of the mind, we are getting rid of emotional disarray, mess, confusion, chaos, derangement, disorder and untidiness! Oh goodness! can you imagine carrying all that heap of bereavement into a new year!
In the process, our heart might be bruised, but it will recover and become capable of seeing beauty of life once more. And it’s all because something even better is about to arrive.
When there’s confusion and disorder, It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.
If I could take responsibility for the path I had chosen for myself, and all the consequences that accompanied that choice, even you could do it! And it gave me the simple but powerful satisfaction of extending a kindness to another person in a tough spot. I believe you could too, ‘Let’s talk about it!
May God help us all!
Ever wonder why we keep going around and around in circle?
Making the same mistakes over and over again?
Aha! Confusion and uncertainty ARE part of the process of growth. But they are not things unto themselves.
They are tools, used of God unto a purpose.
What is that purpose? That we might stop leaning upon our own understanding and perception, and trust God.
That the walk of faith is a walk in total darkness, but in total certainty about God. And the way we can enter into this walk is to be stripped of our faith and reliance upon our own understanding.
Rather than in our own understanding, we must, by
faith, place all our confidence in God Himself.
To move forward in life, First, we all need this clarity
May God help us all!
