Wait for Me.  

 I don’t want to wait, Lord.  I want to know now.  Please make this stop.  Please just help me now.

Trust Me.

Okay, well it would be a whole lot easier to do that if you would just tell me what exactly I’m trusting you about.

“Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:  Who created all these?”  (Isaiah 40:26)

Yes, yes, you did.  You created everything.  Thank you for doing so.  But I’m kinda still feeling a little hung out to dry here, so could we bring this back into focus?  I’m floundering here.

“Oh, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to love Him, and to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul…” (Deu 10:12)

You’re right.  I’m sorry.  This is just really hard.  I’m feeling helpless.  Really, really, helpless.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.”  (2 Cor 12:9)

Right. 

“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”  (Rom 8:28).

Okay but…

“Cast all your anxiety on the Lord because he cares for you”  (1 Peter 5:7). 
“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love”  (Zephaniah 3:17).
“For God is greater than our hearts and He knows everything”  (1 John 3:20b).
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.  Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires”  (2 Peter 1:304).

So wait for Me, daughter.
Trust Me.

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”  (Jeremiah 29:11).

Okay.

Yes, Lord.

You win.

I will wait. 
I will trust. 
I will follow.

“Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you;  your name and renown are the desire of our hearts” (Isaiah 26:8).

Yes, Lord.  Yes, Lord.  Yes, Lord.

One thought on “

  1. Hello. This is what I have been trying to remind myself lately, and it seems like it may be somewhat applicable to where you are as well. (Special thanks to Beth Moore for reminding me)
    God will not fulfill your destiny without you. I know that “destiny” my make you want to throw up a little bit, but bear with me. If you are seeking God, no one else is going to get your job, marry your husband, have your kids (or not have them), or get the degree you should have gotten. Seek Christ and all of those things will be added unto you. Just becuase you may feel inactive or like a sitting duck just waiting, doesn’t mean God is. He is actively preparing you…and the world around you. It may not be what feels best for you right now, but you can trust that it’s what’s best for Him. Otherwise he would have moved you already. Sit tight, my friend. I think that a lot of times His glory feels a lot like exile to us. (Try to enjoy it a little too because, believe it or not, you will llikely ook back on these times fondly. Make some fun memories that you won’t believe when you say them again later…like your birthday night…but skip the hitchhiking and other ridiculousness that could have gotten you killed).
    Sorry for the comment novel. I love you.
