I've been wondering about the future lately.
Been thinking about what I have to do to get from here to there.
I feel like my dreams are so unattainable and far fetched that I will never be able to achieve them.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who struggles with this.
I love my life, my husband and kids, my home, etc...
It's not that I'm ungrateful.
It's just that I know there is MORE for me to do, be, see, etc...
And I wonder how long it is gonna take.
Do you ever find yourself asking God that question?
"God, I know you have called me to such and such but I'm not seeing any signs of such and such happening right now so how can I move things along a bit? Or can you just drop such and such right into my lap this very second so I don't have to wait anymore?" :)
Can a girl get an Amen?
I'm just being real.
This waiting period of my life has felt like it's been going on for the past 3 years.
The more progress I make in the natural, the less clearly I'm able to see how the heck this miracle of a dream is going to happen.
But God is so hilarious sometimes.
I mean, He really has me laughing over this one. (Sarcasm intended).
I can hear Him now.
"Daughter, you are so adorable in your frantic efforts to make this giant dream come to pass on your own. I can see how badly you want it. I want so badly to give it to you. There's just one catch: you have to let ME do all the work."
This comforts me and challenges me.
It really is such a huge concept to grasp that I can spin my wheels getting everything perfect for my dreams to come true but really God's just waiting on me.
So He can finish what He started.
His word even says it as clear as day:
