Sit tight, God’s got this!

Be Patient

Brothers and sisters, be patient until the Lord comes again. A farmer patiently waits for his valuable crop to grow from the earth and for it to receive the autumn and spring rains. You, too, must be patient. Do not give up hope, because the Lord is coming soon. Brothers and sisters, do not complain against each other or you will be judged guilty. And the Judge is ready to come! 10 Brothers and sisters, follow the example of the prophets who spoke for the Lord. They suffered many hard things, but they were patient. 11 We say they are happy because they did not give up. You have heard about Job’s patience, and you know the Lord’s purpose for him in the end. You know the Lord is full of mercy and is kind.

Being patient, that’s totally not my forte. I like to do things. To run towards the wind like a bull in a china shop and demolish anything that is in my path. Yet sometimes we are called to be patient. To sit tight. To wait. Sometimes that is the hardest thing. Sometimes it is actually easier when things don’t go your way or they do because at least you see the path and you can keep the hope but when you are called to wait it can get so easy to be restless.

Constantly I am reminded by this beautiful quote that says “In every season you are still God”. I love that. In every season whether full of fire or in the pit of the valley, my God is constant- he stays the same. There is a time for you to come to faith, there is a time for you to plant and a time to reap and sometimes waiting is the best thing ever. Allow the lord of love to hold your heart tight. To shape and mould you into the beautiful person you are created to be, Never be disappointed by what comes for there is a reason for everything. Never get angry at God for he knows what he is doing. Never Ever Give Up! He knows the timing of your friends salvation, when you will meet that ideal partner or whatever the thing you are waiting for is. For the king of peace will grant (me) the ability to see (my) life in abundance, abounding in every good thing. The miracle is on its way for (I) believe in a God of the miraculous.

I love this song, give it a listen if you get a chance: Steady Heart

I can’t see
What’s in front of me
Still I will trust You
Still I will trust You

Steady heart that keeps on going
Steady love that keeps on holding
Lead me on
Steady grace that keeps forgiving
Steady faith that keeps believing
Lead me on

Though the sky is dark
And the wind is wild
You’ll never leave me
You’ll never leave me

Though the night is long
There is a coming dawn
The light is breaking
The light is breaking

Steady heart that keeps on going
Steady love that keeps on holding
Lead me on
Steady grace that keeps forgiving
Steady faith that keeps believing
Lead me on

And as the dawn breaks
And the clouds clear
In an open space
Together we will run

All my love x
