Day 15: Until


What are you WAITING to happen

~that is all that you can think about

~that is robbing you of your moments

UNTIL

you get what you want when you want it?

It may be something that you are

praying for that

GOD

tells you to pray about.

It may be

PEACE

It may be

FORGIVENESS

It may be

JOY.

You know that

IN HIM

these are yours right at this moment,

yet you are waiting for that

something to happen first

before you can live & embrace all that

GOD

has for you

IN HIM

because you are waiting for your

"UNTIL"

to happen first.

Hmm..

I have many

"UNTILS"

that become all consuming

when they are what I am fixating my time & energy on~

leaving no room for what

GOD

has for me now.

DO YOU HAVE AN "UNTIL" THAT IS ROBBING YOU OF HIS JOY? What if we

FASTED

from our

"UNTILS"

and instead~

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, & faithful in prayer” (Romans 12:12), .

Just because you & I

are allowed to enjoy all the fruit that is ours

IN JESUS

as we sit back and enjoy the ride~

even though it may feel uncomfortable

or be a wee bit bumpy right now

as we are waiting for

UNTIL

what we want to happen when we want it to happen.

But what if

the waiting is the answer because

GOD

is doing something so dynamic in the wait?

Isaiah 64:8 tells us that

GOD is the POTTER & we are the clay~

the work of HIS hands.

I picture myself on the potter’s wheel &

GOD has just made me a cup.

I like being a cup, but then I

I feel like I get smashed

as

HE

starts forming me into something else.

When I fight the process, it hurts.

I have to laugh now, even when it does hurt,

because it is just part of

GOD's

refining process.

It is really about

GOD'S plan~not yours or mine.

It is about GOD'S timeline~not yours. or mine.

HIS plan looks & feels different than ours,

yet is the right one, so why not trust Him in the process~

since

HE

has an answer for every stumbling block in the process,

You can live today in freedom, even while dealing with the unresolved issues of your life.

So Let's

FAST

from fixating on our

UNTILS

by

fixating on

JESUS

in the here & now

because

HE IS KNOW

& not

UNTIL.
