CONTENT IN THE WAITING
To be honest, I stuggle to be content. I am a dreamer and love new adventures. I see everyone else doing things I want to and find myself asking God, "When is it my turn?" Sometimes those longings for things that I want to do and have are so deep and real, they actually make my heart ache. My desire for adventure, travel, relashonship is so deep that my heart aches when I think about waiting.
But (I am thankful that there is a but and promise interjected here) God has great things for me in the future AND now. I trust and believe He sees my longings and desires and has the most wonderful plans (Jeremiah 29:11) for me that I wouldn't even believe (Ephesians 3:20). But He has great things for me NOW too. I don't want to miss out on what He has for me in this season.
I love thinking about what God is doing. Maybe He is preparing and growing me for one of the things I so deeply want. Maybe I need this time to be with Him without more distractions. It is so beautiful to think about how God is working in my life because I know He loves me so much and is writing the most beautiful story. I trust that He knows what He is doing and I love that I can leave my life in His strong hands, knowing I am so safe. I love that I can give Him my deepest longings and desires, knowing that He gave them to me and will work it all out.
If you are in the season of wait like I am, let's be content, leaving our dreams and lives in God's hands. You are so safe in His arms. Let us praise Him and thank Him loudly. Let us dance and talk to Him. Let us seek Him so earnestly, hungry for more of Him. Let us grow so close to Him and love those around us so greatly.
Can you imagine it? Us just dancing and laughing in God's arms because we are secure in Him? We know we are safe. Let's not waste our waiting time. Let's give it all we got and wildly praise God in the meantime. He is so good in all seasons!

Lord, thank You that you love me so much and have the most beautiful and greatest plans for me. Thank You that I can leave my life and desires in Your hand, trusting You with everything. Please help me to believe that truth. Help me to seek You with all my heart and praise loudly and pray boldly. Please help me to dance, laugh, smile and love in the waiting even when it hurts. Have Your way Lord. I am all Yours!
Love, Your Child
