Today I read:
Oh restless heart—beating against prison bars of your circumstances and longing for a wider realm of usefulness--allow God to direct all of your days. Patience and trust, even in the monotony of your daily routine, will be the best preparation to courageously handle the stress and strain of a greater opportunity which God may someday send—taken from the devotional: Streams in the Desert.
Do you ever hear the Lord say, “Wait. Wait. Wait.” ? And you somehow know that you are lingering in some of His discipline for you? It is h.a.r.d. You might feel pensive and even confused. Yet the answer to the struggle seems simply, “Wait............... I am coming.” And He does.
In His responsive kindness I am transformed into a deep well of gratefulness like so many before me. Thankfulness takes it’s seat in me. He connects my intellect to Himself and I imagine He as much as says,
“Here it is, child!-- See, I understand you and your hidden heart beats.”
“Here it is!-- a bright flag to draw eyes upward and trust onward into this holy mist”.
“Here it is! –the “soul-surrounding” that anchors you to Me.”
“And here is it! –your deepest of life’s delights—connection with Me.”
“Here it is! –an invitation for hopefulness, and invitation to “see”.
“Here it is! –a chair in my presence and a cup of my peace in your hand.”
And it’s as if He says, “Isn't it great that you, my child, can do nothing outside of me? (John 15:5) We will always do your greatest work together?”
If you are waiting in the midst of something hard, rest assured............. He is coming to you ♥ ♥ ♥
