“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” – Psalm 27:14
Don’t you just love how God speaks to you in a pre-planned way? This verse is from my desktop tear-away calendar. I always look forward to seeing what it says each day; to see how God is talking to me; to see what He’s going to tell me each day.
Today, He’s telling me to be patient. There are some things in my life that I expected to be a lot easier than they have been, and to happen a lot faster than they have. Things that seem to come so much more quickly for others than for Marc and me. And it’s so frustrating and disheartening, most of the time. It’s hard to watch and see.
So, today, God is telling me (AGAIN) that I need to wait for Him. It doesn’t matter that I think I’m ready. God’s not ready. Rather, God’s plans are perhaps at a different pace from the plans I have all mapped out in my head. Isn’t that usually the case, though? =.) More than that, I KNOW, without ANY doubt, that God’s timing is absolutely perfect. Above all else, God’s plan for my life is perfect.
I just have to wait for the Lord. =.)
