This Is A Temporary Situation

“Why would you ever complain,
O Jacob, or, whine, Israel, saying,
“GOD has lost track of me.
He doesn’t care what happens to me”?
Don’t you know anything?
Haven’t you been listening?
GOD doesn’t come and go.
God lasts.
He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn’t get tired out,
doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon GOD get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
they walk and don’t lag behind.”
Isaiah 40:27-31 MSG

Don’t you ever ask too…. “Why God, when God, where God, how God?!?!”

Because I gotta know this is just a temporary situation now.

All these things here are TEMPORARY but You last. You are forever. You are good. You are my portion. You are my strength. You are my deliverer. You are my defender. You are my advocate. You are my healer. You are my help. You are my hope. You are my peace.

You are taking me places. As I close my eyes, I begin to open up my heart. More and more. Transition… it’s never really simple. I am seeing that nonstop. It’s fast and slow all at one, and not many will understand that suddenly perspective. But I am beginning to understand.







Christina…. do you get it now?

I think I get it. You will keep me throughout the transitioning. I wanna be ready.

Whenever I am feeling the weight of my current situation I have to remind myself that this is all a transition into my next season.  Winter can’t last forever.  The transition is happening.  Even though I may not be able to see things on the surface the way that I want to and at the pace that I want it, I know that God is doing something underneath it all.  He is working a strong foundation for me to have the best success in my future.  Those are the things that always take the most time to produce the richest and finest results.

This is a temporary situation that I am in right now. And although it may not “feel” so great, I know that He is working on my behalf for my future.  That is why, what I do now in my today is that much more critical to be in step and in alignment with those plans.

It makes the scripture that much more alive in my life because I get tired.  Like any human. I get tired of waiting and working the extra miles in until I do finally arrive.  My mentor spoke some words of life into me this morning only to remind me –it is just for a small season.  A temporary season.  You are almost at that place where the way has already been paved for you.  The depth that you are creating now is working behind these scenes so that when the curtain is opened it will be the most amazing that I have experienced.

“But those who wait upon GOD get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
they walk and don’t lag behind.”

It has been costing me a lot to wait during this transition. But I cant get tired.  As hard as it has been for me, more that I can ever express. I know I am going to soar someday. ❤
