I WAIT ~
I have hearts desires of life
Psalm 37:4 New International Version (NIV)Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
I WAIT ~
Notice in the scripture above, it say take delight in the Lord. I believe that means to trust the Lord and know his ways are on time. That's just my point but waiting can be hard. How about that one prayer you have prayed for years and still waiting? I often say I trust the Lord with all my heart and yet get a little frustrated in the waiting time of life. Let's be real today and know that we do trust God, but we want our answers quicker.
I have waited on things that didn't happen. I have prayed prayers and that didn't get answered the way I thought. Down the road of life, I find why those prayers wasn't answered my way. I am not perfect and I make my own mistakes of life. I have waited on some people to forgive me over something that wasn't my fault and their words haunt my life at times. I will never forget you and that's hard to live with. Yet, I go back to Psalm 37:4 I Must take delight in the Lord and he will guide my life and hear my heart. No I don't think I will ever hear those words, but I have learned I don't need to hear them. I hear the Lord and he says I am forgiven of all my sins. All is a big word and only three letters. I wrote this today because I believe someone needs to let words of others go that are negative.
Freedom comes in waiting too. Freedom of knowing who you are in life and that you life makes difference. Look around you, you are waiting on someone else while looking into a mirror of hope. God directs our paths as we make decisions. Making good ones matter and there is someone watching your life today and you may not know that. Someone could be a child or someone could be an adult. Maybe it's that person in the store and they over hear a conversation of hope from your lips to someone.
I was in a store and my granddaughters was picking out a gift each for toys for tots. Willow said, "Grammie I really want this toy". I said, "but we are hear for another child in need for Christmas and this might be their only toy". I think we should give it to that person and who knows what you will get for Christmas. We are blessings others today, okay? Willow said Ok and the lady down the isle said to her friend, "I love hearing what she just said and she smiled at me". My example out in a store and not realizing someone heard me.
My prayers are with you, your family and friends. I continue to hear and taking one day at a time. I am going onto 6 days of hurting eyes but so grateful they are better. I value your prayers too. God is good all the time and all the time, God is good. Things might take us down rough roads of life, but later in life, it makes some kind of sense. Don't give up believing in miracles or holding on to the prayer of your heart. God does give desires of our hearts, but our decisions make a difference too. Purpose this a good day and remember to share Jesus as your day continues.
