Until We Get There

“And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.”
Hebrews 6:15

And so…. no matter what we try to do we still have to wait. We wait in traffic, on lines… We wait for results….we wait for the days to pass for special events.  Or for some of us we wait for huge things. Well until we get there what do we actually do right?

I feel like I am always rushing most days. No matter how many books or teachings I hear on this I am always rushing for things to move in its right place.  I told myself this morning….”RELAX, Christina —you don’t always have to rush.”  Until we get there I can do a lot of other things to help me ease the wait.

I can imagine that many of us are waiting for huge things such as a spouse, children, a property purchase, a business or ministry to launch, a great new work position, for the weight to come off or even a change in existing relationships or things.

There we go waiting again.  Every day is a wait.  But every day there is something happening.  Just like Abraham waited for his promise and got his, so did others.

So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, “Because I asked the Lord for him.”
1 Samuel 1:20

So after waiting patiently and in the course of time we will get to experience the suddenly and the immediately.  Your promise has arrived. What you asked for, you got.  What you have been believing God for, is here.  Your prayer request has been granted.  The door has finally been opened for you and it is your time to emerge.

Until we get there we need to trust God.  Until we get there we need to believe that His precious promises are YES and AMEN.  Until we get there we should prepare anyway for the day to arrive with the answer.  So that way–when the suddenly and immediately happens we are more than well equipped.

Dear God –thank you for being the owner of our days.  Thank you for making all things beautiful in its time just as Your Word declares.  We know that there is a time for everything and I pray today that until we get to our destination that you give us a heart of peace.  I pray that we will continue in joy, love and harmony through out each day.  May we stop rushing our day and special time to arrive.  Let us find ways to appreciate and overflow with abundant gratitude for what You have given us while we are waiting. There is nothing like having such a relationship with You that we would have never known without the days like this.  This course You have ordained for us is settled and it is perfect.  I trust You in that– so when my destination is clear I can be well adapt and equipped for what You promised. Amen and amen…

With Love,
