Yesterday someone was asking me about Purpose Box, and as I spent time answering, some words came out of my mouth that surprised even me:
How many times have I needed to hear that? How many times has something just not been right at that moment? God knows the moments. He knows the inner desires of our hearts. He knows when the time is right–for anything and nothing.
So many times I have wanted something right now, when what God had for me was so much better. When will I learn to give it to Him and trust? When will I learn to let Him lead? Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders…
“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” –Isaiah 40:31
We are like children, and we all are God's children's. We want what we want, but everything is in His timing. So I pray for patience and give it over to God, just to snatch it back eventually, as we all do. Thank you God for your perfect timing, even though it sometimes makes me crazy!
