I keep hearing this phrase so I thought I’d write about it. Mostly because I desperately need the reminder each day.
Nothing in life has come as a quick fix. But I’m so prone to still crave and want it to be that way.
I saw a memory of Facebook last week. One that reminded of the battle we he with eczema when my oldest was little. Oh how I prayed for God just to take it away. I was discouraged. I had tried everything.
The older he’s gotten the better his skin has gotten.
But I remembered how painful it was not having a solution for him. But I can’t remember how it got better. It got better slowly. There was no miracle prayer that fixed it but slowly it’s gotten better. Prayer is important, sometimes it is a miracle healing and sometimes it’s a strengthening for endurance.
This doesn’t apply to everything but if you are in a season of waiting.
Waiting on an answer.
Waiting for a cure.
Waiting on a positive pregnancy test.
Waiting for someone to come to Christ.
For your sake and mine I wish we didn’t have to wait. But in the waiting there is preparation to be had. We don’t have to wait sitting on our hands. But as we wait we can trust and move one day at a time. Do one thing at a time.
And slowly the waiting will be over and the new will come and you’ll be looking around wondering, how did we get here?
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
Psalms 27:14 NIV
