As I Wait #828Blessings

Have you ever been at a place in your life where you felt like you may be in a holding pattern?  Where you seem to be circling around the same situations, circumstances or issues as if you had no direction?  I have.  It was in those times I had to learn that even as I wait God is still working things out for my good.

Shortly after my Hubby and I moved to Hawaii I started to feel stagnant.  I had no church home, no family nearby and it felt like no direction for my life beyond being a Mommy and Wife.  I started to feel depressed and impatient.  What was my purpose?  I loved my family and my life but I wanted and needed something for myself.  I had lost who I was in the midst of having babies (all less that 2 years apart) and moving around at the requests of the Military.

I used to be Little Miss Corporate, always social and always busy.  I had goals and I was on my way to achieving them.  Yet now I felt as if my goals in life and even in faith had somehow been placed on hold.  Was it a part of God’s design or had I lost focus somewhere?  It was in these moments of doubt of myself and who I was supposed to be that I heard God’s voice telling me to simply wait.  He knew my path and the desires he had for me.  Yet my question was what was I to do as I wait?

I began to pray, study and seek answers.  I knew that yes there were times when God can cause you to be in a holding period simply for the sake of learning or overcoming something that you need in order to move forward.  Where was my lesson?  What did I need to overcome?  As I prayed and listened for God’s answers more than I presented my own questions I realized that there were things in my ‘busy’ life that were more hindrances than helpful.  That always busy person was never present in the moment.  She would be somewhere but her mind would already be moving on to the next event, next place, next person.

How could I desire to be a witness to anyone if I couldn’t even foci on them long enough to understand where they were?  This is when I found the peace in the waiting.  Instead of worrying about what I was to do as I wait I began to instead focus on what to learn and take away from that time.  Then when God did decide to release me for my forward move I would be ready, wiser and stronger in my faith and who I truly was.

Psalm 27:14 (KJV)

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
