Day 45: Stuck in the Middle


Have you ever prayed for patience?

Well watch out

because

Impatience

will come running through the door

trying to

steal the

peace that transcends all understanding.

Impatience~

"Intolerance of anything that thwarts, delays, or hinders.

Eager desire for relief or change; restlessness."

Wait

breeds

Impatience

when you are

Stuck in the Middle of Wait~

Stuck in the waiting room.

Have you been there?

You know the doctor is there

You know you are on time.

You know that they could move a wee bit faster,

but you wait

because you are not in control.

Stuck in the Middle of Wait~

Awaiting a diagnosis

Awaiting surgery

Awaiting an answer

Awaiting for ____________.

What are you waiting for?

How are you when you are stuck in the middle of wait?

Waiting is waiting

no matter how big or small your wait is

but

it is more about how you are

when you are

Stuck in the Middle of Wait

just

Waiting~

wanting to move forward while nothing is happening.

Wait~

"to stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens."

But

what if

God’s plan is the

Wait~

when you have no choice but to look up?

Today we remember the

Biggest Wait~

Jesus is in the tomb.

Quietness fills the land as

their Jesus

our Jesus

is taken off from the cross

&

put in the tomb.

Questions arise~

If He is our Messiah, where is He now?

What do we do now?

Stuck in the Middle

with nothing that you can do.

Stuck in the Middle of Wait~

paralyzed

because there is nothing to do

but to

Trust God~

~What He said

~What would He do

&

~When He would do it.

But

they forgot

that

Jesus did say

after three days He will rise. Mark 9:31

How quickly I forget.

How about you when you are

Stuck in the Middle of Wait?

Do you forget what God has said?

Do you forgot what Jesus has done?

Do you forget that

Jesus is with you

to walk with you,

especially when you are

Stuck in the Middle of Wait?

Waiting

~for something to happen

~anticipating the something that is going to happen

~or fearful of the what may happen.

Are you stuck in the middle of wait?

But

Where is Jesus?

He is there

In the tomb

Just waiting for God’s perfect timing

When God’s power will

raise Him~

the same power that is within us.

Jesus hasn’t gone anywhere that He wasn’t supposed to go.

He was just following His Father’s will

so we could follow our Father’s will

even when we are

Stuck in the Middle

because

Jesus did rise in three days

&

we will rise above whatever keeps us

Stuck in the Middle.

Jesus was

Stuck in the Middle

on the

middle cross

in-between

two criminals

while He was

in the middle of wait

when

a conversation took place.~

The criminal looked to Jesus and said,

"Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!"

And Jesus responded,

"Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise." Luke 23:42-43

I bet the criminal was glad that it was

Jesus who was

Stuck in the Middle

because now he would

Wait

with

Peace

Joy

&

Hope~

no longer stuck

because

he trusted the

One in the middle.

It is in our

Trusting God

in the Middle of Wait

when we are able to

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

because

it isn’t about what you are waiting for.

It is about

experiencing the

Peace of God

in the midst of the wait

whatever your wait may be.

We have to remain

stuck to God

because that is where we will experience

His Peace

His Joy and

His love

that covers all the fears and anxiety found

in the waiting room.

So let's lose another stubborn pound and

Fast

from

Impatience

when you are

Stuck in the Middle of Wait

by

Looking to the

One

Who patiently waited

three days in the tomb

so that

He would rise

in

God’s perfect timing

because

He always does

what He says He will do~

&

you then you can

Be joyful always

as you

Pray continuously

and as you

Give thanks in all circumstances

"While I'm Waiting"~

for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
