Maybe you feel like you’re trying to run towards that finish line, to run through the red ribbon and feel accomplished. But you’re not running- that’s how you feel anyway, you’re walking, really slowly like snail slow. You’ve passed that same old building so many times, tempted to stay there and wait for a while everytime you pass it. Are you going round in circles, but just not hitting that finish line? Are you trying and trying and trying SO hard but nothing is happening, you’re not going anywhere.
We all feel that way sometimes. We try to take the next step or just try to do something that we think will be perfect for us. We all do it.
Maybe you’re not going anywhere because you’re taking it into your own hands and not considering what your plan is really supposed to be. Maybe You havent prayed about it, maybe you have but you’re not getting the urge, that overwhelming feeling where you know He’s telling you yes. Where he’s saying yes you’re ready. Go on. What are you waiting for? It’s hard. It really is. When you want something so much but He knows it’s not for you. It’s hard just dropping all that work and time you spent on that goal. Sometimes i think it’s selfish that God would do that, that He wouldn’t just change the plan for you.” If only” you’re probably thinking. But then I remember that His plan is so much better than mine.
He tells you that your life has been set in stone before you were even born. Before you were even in your mothers womb. He has crafted you so perfectly, handpicked the goals and ambitions that you are going to reach and designed your incredible purpose. He knows what’s right for you and what’s wrong. Maybe you’re trying to follow your own plan and it’s just not working out. Pray about it. Pray again. Keep praying.If you’re not getting that feeling, or that voice or however he speaks to you, maybe that goal really isn’t in His plan, even when you really thought it was. Maybe you do need to drop it. But don’t be afraid to.
Know that your disappointment is okay. Know that His plan is greater and so incredibly beautiful. Have faith that He knows you so well and knows that you are capable of so much. He will stop sending you in circles, you will eventually see that old building for the last time, and you will get to that finish line and break through the ribbon. Trust in Him.
“You may not always end up where you thought you were going, but you will always end up where you are meant to be.”
