WAITING IS SOMETIMES VERY HARD ~
The Bible speaks of seasons in our lives and how change will happen. We are taught in school to wait our turn and be patient. We grow up to finding waiting on other things in life is often hard too. Waiting and growing in God is important.
Matthew 7:7-12 New International Version (NIV)Ask, Seek, Knock7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
HELP IS ON THE WAY ~
God will answer as we pray, seek him and knock.
It is important to understand that not everything is happens the way we think it will. I look back at my own life and see how circumstances changed things I thought would happen. I don't live where I thought I would live or even the same town. My kids grew up in a different place than my husband and I had planned. Yet, if it didn't happen this way, I might not be writing you today. I grew bitter in my younger years and wanted to give up on God. I stopped seeking him, because I was hurt, broken and done with people. God knew my heart and gently pulled on me. One day, I saw how my way wasn't working for my family and friends. I had to let go of the anger and bitterness inside of me. It was killing me from the inside out.
When I made the decision to let go of something negative things, it wasn't over night. It took time and I ask God for help. I knew I was lost inside and I needed to find my way out of myself. Crazy hard and lots of tears but here I am today writing you about the faithfulness of God. God directs us through storms like a lighthouse does the ship. God wants us to see clearly and understand that his plan works. No you might never understand the why of something, but you must trust in the process of change.
God hears your hearts desire and promises to help you. I don't know what that is today for you, but I am praying that God answers quickly for you. I believe in miracles and I've seen them in front of my eyes. Never stop asking, seeking or knocking. Never stop believing and pressing forward. Purpose in your mind that it is not an option to stop talking to God or living his plan. Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future if yours! I am believing with you and holding on for your hearts desire too.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
