When You Get Weary Of Waiting
Maybe you're waiting for a spouse
Maybe you're waiting for a positive pregnancy test
Maybe it's a home
Maybe it's a car
Whatever it is the waiting season can be very hard. Gosh it's so hard. I've been waiting on something for almost eight years. It's hard not to envy or doubt when you see other people living your dream or when you see an answered prayer that's similar to yours.
"But God what about me?"
Did He forget about me...about us? Do our requests not matter? Is it me, am I the problem?
Friends I don't know what your situation is but if you find yourself in a similar position as I am I want you to know that we serve a God who knows what's best even when we don't feel like it's the best.
There is a purpose in your waiting. There could be so many reasons why you're waiting. Maybe the timing just isn't right. I know for me, waiting has increased my faith like never before. Years have passed by and I've gotten to a point where I am completely dependent on God. At this point, there's no other way. Only He can do/fulfill my request. It's completely out of my hands and in His.
There are times when I doubt like can God really do this? It seems impossible at this point. Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to deaf ears like either He doesn't hear me or He's completely ignoring me.
Don't run from Him. Cling to Him. There have been many nights of weeping and repetition of prayers especially when I feel like throwing in the towel many times the best thing I can say " Lord I believe I know you can do it but I doubt please help me in my unbelief. Help me to wait on You. Help me to know that regardless if You answer my prayer or not that You are enough"
It's okay to be sad sometimes. It's okay to cry. A lot of people make it seem like the waiting process is smooth sailing or it's so easy to put on a smile but most times that's just not the case. While it is okay to feel feelings especially when you're feeling sad try not to act on them. Don't turn your back on God.
He's there, He cares.
Whatever your answer may be whether that's a yes, no, or keep waiting know that He is enough.
