One of the most exasperating, frustrating, and painful thing anyone could ever do
Waiting is difficult
I am yet to encounter one human being who delights in waiting to get what they soooo passionately desire
But it is in waiting that God prepares us
It is in waiting that lessons are learnt
It is in waiting that God molds and shapes us
It is in waiting that we get closer to God
From waiting for the right spouse, to the child that you so desire, through to that dream job, to that spouse/child who has gone astray to come back to themselves,
To that promotion which always seem to pass you by.
To that ailment that has plagued you for years
To that pain in your heart from a betrayal or loss
And draaab, nothing happens
Then more waiting …
And much… much… more….waiting
It is never easy
From a few hours to a few days,….
To a few weeks, to a few years and then sometimes
To a few decades
The clock is ticking
And you begin to ask yourself
“Does God love me?
Does He care what happens to me?
Does He even exist?
What have I done?
Why would He do this to me?
He can do this in a heartbeat, So why is He making me wait?
Why not you?
Who should it be?
It’s you because He knows what you are capable of handling
“He has plans for you…..plans to prosper you
And not to harm you
To give you a future and an EXPECTED END” (Jeremiah 29:11)
This is Good News
Worship whilst waiting
Pray, whilst waiting
Sing praises, whilst waiting
Encourage yourself in the Lord like David did
Count your blessings and name them one by one
Help that friend who needs help
Get busy in the house of God
Live a righteous life
Stay focused on God, not turning to the left or to the right
Prepare for the miracle
God has got your back
The whole of Heaven is working on your case
And soon, you will rejoice
And laugh, and laugh
And it will seem like it was only yesterday
Wipe your tears
Stand up straight
Hold your Head up high
Very soon, in just a little while it will all be over
And you will understand why you had to wait
God has got a lot invested in you
Don’t give up just yet
Wait…Wait… It is coming
And God will make it your worthwhile.
