Have you ever wondered what’s next? When am I going to reach this goal?
I have! For years, I’ve asked God about various aspects of my life. Some I have waited for patiently and others, well I’ve shown God my attitude. Needless to say I’ve been impatient and even angry at times. God wants us to be truthful with Him and tell Him how we feel.
We are told in Ecclesiastes “For everything there is a season.” Still I wonder when that season will come. Why have I been in the desert so long? When will God show me the direction and answers I’ve been waiting for?
Waiting is not easy. I understand why the Israelites grew frustrated after 40 years in the desert. I often wonder how Joseph endured while he was in prison those seven years.
Still I know that the answer comes down to one answer, with God’s help I will wait. That’s the same way that I’ve made it through. It’s not been easy, but I have to trust that He knows best. As my pastor says, He sees the upper story when I only see the lower story.
That doesn’t make it any easier, but I’ll trust that He knows what’s best. So while I wait, I’ll continue to lean on Him.
