Day 12: Now Is The Time


The world is starting to open up,

yet it is not.

Vaccines for some & some still WAITING.

Masks have become part of the uniform of life.

Weariness is setting in

as many are going through the motions

hoping that one day life will go back to

normal

and the WEIGHT of the WAIT will be over.

But will it really~

as isn't life on big WAIT.

You get what you want and then you want something else.

You don't get what you want and are WAITING for it

and then when you get it you start WAITING again.

Are you tired of WAITING for this to happen or that to happen?

I am~

Because it just WEIGHS me down

so that the WAIT overcomes me.

What if the WAIT is over?

What if this very moment you can take the biggest inhale and the biggest exhale

and really start living in the here and now.

Oh when we BELIEVE it is possible

and walk BELIEVING

even a cloudy day is sunny

because

BELIEVING is SEEING the possible in the midst of the impossible

when we choose to be

"Constantly rejoicing IN HOPE..." & not in people, places & things

"...[because of our confidence in Christ]"*

And when we choose to be

"Steadfast and patient IN DISTRESS..."

only because we are choosing to be

"Devoted TO PRAYER [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]" *(Romans 12:12)

Oh it sounds way too easy,

but it is so hard to do

when we don't BELIEVE

that we can actually

"Rejoice always"

even when we don't feel like rejoicing.

And again there is that PRAYER thing we are asked to do~

"Pray continually"

even when you feel like GOD isn't listening.

And then to

"Give thanks IN ALL circumstances..."

And you wonder,

Do you really mean "ALL"?

And oh yes,

because it isn't a thanking GOD that you love the circumstances

that you are living IN

as it is about THANKING GOD IN them.

And oh when I do & you do

we are living the life that GOD desires us to live~

"...for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus" (I Thessalonians 5:16-18).

The WEIGHT of WAIT

has lifted

because

"those who hope in the LORD

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:31).

Therefore,

will you lose another pound of

WAIT

with me today

by

abiding in the ONE who abides IN you

no matter what circumstance you are IN?
