What are you wanting in your life right now?
Do you have a plan to get it, or maybe you’re trying to come up with one?
Are you becoming frustrated waiting for that next thing to come about?
Can you look back at all the miracles that God has brought about so far?
Do you believe your plans made those happen, and so you’re going to try that approach again?
Here are some words and their definitions for you today:
WAIT- stay where one is, or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens.
PATIENT- able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering, without becoming annoyed or anxious.
IMPATIENT- having or showing a tendency to be quickly provoked or irritated.
What I find so interesting about the human condition, what we strive for we tend to do the opposite expecting to get the desired outcome. Let’s talk about this for a minute; we all want peace right, but because the mind is so anxious, the brain immediately kicks into all gears finding ways to solve each situation, and some that haven’t happened yet, to obtain peace!
We are sabotaging ourselves my friends. Why is it we think our anxiety will lead us to the answer?We are allowing our anxious thoughts to determine our next action and that will never ever lead to the peaceful outcome we so desire. There is a reason God says in Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. ”
We cannot find the complete peace we want in our own works. It is only the Holy Spirit can do that, but we must make that sacrifice to hand it over, regardless of what is happening around us, or to us. I know, for me, focusing on gratitude and all I have been given, takes me to a calm place, and that is where I find God, every single time. Being in His presence removes all fear. You can have that too, try it!
