Waiting … not one of my better attributes, but I’m learning. We’re waiting for a buyer for our home; we’re waiting to get on with life in Lake Havasu; we’re waiting to pack everything up and be on our way; we waiting to be together with our boys in Havasu. But God has a plan and His timing is not necessarily my timing … He sees the big picture … I see today, tomorrow and maybe next month.
Always before I’ve become really driven to get done what I want done when I want it done and how I want it done. But in my latter years of increased wisdom (!) I’m trying very hard to step back, take a breath, and look on the bright side … God has a special plan for us and He’s working it out for our benefit and I should not try to rush Him or coerce Him or change His plan in any way.
Perhaps He is waiting for exactly the right house to become available for us to rent when we arrive. Perhaps He is priming my husband’s company to be ready to allow him to work from home so he can continue in his position yet still be available to oversee our new venture. Perhaps He is putting the final touches on the situation for our new venture to succeed.
I know my ways and my thoughts are not God’s ways and His thoughts and I’ve determined that I’m going to let God be God and me be me and don’t get the two mixed up. He is smarter than I am; He sees more than I see; He has plans for me and my family that I know nothing about and I don’t want to upset His plans. How dumb that would be. The best place we can all be is exactly where God wants us to be at the moment.
And on that note, I’m going to relax and let Him be the boss and I’ll do all that I can do and then just look forward to seeing the result of what He is doing today … and tomorrow … and on and on.
My, that’s much easier than me just worrying and fretting over everything … and it doesn’t accomplish anything anyway.
Blessings and sweet dreams,
