Hello, NoLongerBarren. It’s been some time since I posted here…but a few weeks ago…what happened…is worthy of a post…and I hope it blesses you.
So I had confessed, some months ago, to some of my brothers and sisters in Christ that I had been struggling with waiting…waiting on the promise. This struggle was showing up everywhere. I was irritated with all kinds of waiting…waiting on people arriving late…waiting on my husband and son to lock up the house and get in the car…waiting waiting waiting!!! I even spoke with my pastor about it and he gave me some encouraging word to help me put some things in perspective.
I’ve learned that so often, what’s happening in your natural is an indicator of your spiritual condition.
So fast forward to a week later and I was walking around in a grocery store. My mind was racing with thoughts of how God pursued me when I was 17…and I wasn’t ready. How He called my name when I was 22 and I didn’t want to serve Him yet…and there were other times. And then I thought about how grateful I was that God PATIENTLY WAITED FOR ME…how He allowed me to live long enough for Him to save me and that I didn’t die in my sin. I was just walking and wiping the tears away…as my soul worshiped God.
The next day, I was at church and the choir began singing a new song that I’ve never heard before…You Waited by Travis Greene. By the end of the song…I HEARD THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAY, “See…I WAITED for you”.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, worship engulfed me… You see…I didn’t parallel His wait with my wait until this very moment. HE WAITED ON ME 1ST!!!
The waits are not even equal…you see His wait benefits me…and my wait benefits me as well. But the REVELATION…THE PERSPECTIVE God had to reveal to me…IT SHOOK ME LOOSE and changed my irritation into gratefulness. ONLY A RIGHTEOUS GOD CAN DO THAT!!!
HE SET ME UP…TO SET ME FREE. Listen to the words of the song above and let it settle in your spirit…then… WAIT…Isaiah 30:18 …blessed are they that wait on the Lord.
I choose to believe that I am going to bear a child from my own eggs, womb & husband, and I choose this because of the Voice of Truth!
