Playing the waiting game for the perfect shot
Ever think hard about something and find yourself praying on it and suddenly you come across a bible verse that either you saw online or if you attend service on Sunday the sermon happens to pertain to exactly what it is you were praying about in the first place?
That happens to me constantly. It happened again to me today, thinking about something that’s been on my mind for a long time and suddenly I come across this on my phone, Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Christianity is my base, and I am very spiritual. I find myself consistently on this life’s journey, always trying my best, often falling, often failing, being very human, full of mistakes, and simultaneously always aware God has my back though sometimes it’s really hard trusting fully in an entity you cannot see, hear, touch, and yet with all your heart you have to have unfailing faith, which is no easy task.
I’m betting it’s the same for most of you. It’s a tough road living in this world, and trying hard not to be ‘of this world.’
Everyday is a struggle to get it right, but the most important thing for me is to keep on trying each day, doing my best to follow the path. I’m certain it’s hard for us all sometimes.
The one thing that I can say is that I do surrender to his will each and everyday, with the hope he will indeed lead me to where I am supposed to be, which is quite possible where I already am.
A great friend of mine once told me to ‘surrender fully to Gods will and watch what happens to your life.’
From where I started to where I currently am is nothing short of amazing. I’ve seen his work first hand but there is something telling me there is more to come, and I am ready.
‘Trust in the lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.’
I’m in, 110%, but being a Type-A, it’s really hard not leading from the front and sitting back waiting. I think I’ll ask for some patience as well within my prayers. Ha.
Have a great day, folks.
