Waiting...

So, how do you feel about waiting?


We all know I'm rather...um...impatient when it comes to waiting.


(Don't skip out once you realize this is a "Jesus Post"! It won't hurt you to read, hehe!)


Reading this was a fresh reminder of not only true trust but the importance of waiting on God.


I had alternative posting plans this AM but after reading my devotional, I'm skipping the plan and posting this gem.


I've posted before on awesome, easy devotionals.

Straight from Joyce Meyers: Promises For Your Everyday Life


Waiting Expectantly


"Have you been praying about a situation in your life and found yourself waiting for a breakthrough? Are you wondering why the answer hasn't come yet? Do you feel as though victory is passing you by?

Sometimes when we pray long and hard about a situation in our life without receiving any answers, we just learn to live with it. We go on about our business, wondering if or when God will send the answer. But God does hear those prayers, and He's working out the answers even though we may not know all the details. Our situation can change suddenly, quickly, without warning!

Until then we can either wait passively or expectantly. A passive person gives up, but the expectant person, on the other hand, is hopeful, believing the answer is just around the corner, due to arrive any minute. His belief is not a passive thing. His heart is full of hope, expecting his problem to be solved at any moment. He wakes up every morning expecting to find his answer. He may wait and wait, but he'll keep asking until suddenly, God turns everything around.

Prayer Starter: God, I want to wait expectantly, not passively. I'll keep asking You for my breakthrough, knowing full well that You'll bring it at the right time."

And that my friends, is just my prayer.


It's pretty comfortable to pray about something over and over and eventually stop.


We tend to lose hope when the answer is no or the answer doesn't come immediately.


I know God has some incredible plans for all of us, let's learn to wait expectantly and HOPEFULLY regardless of how long it takes.


I encourage you to write down your prayer list.


Never prayed before?


It's okay!


Just talk in your head what is heavy on your heart.


He's listening whether you know it or not.


Wishing you an expectant day!
