How long before “soon” Lord?
It’s interesting that God does not exist in time like we do.
Blows my mind honestly. Hard to wrap the ol’ noggin’ around that one. Anyway..
I have heard Him whisper to my heart “Soon child, soon” so many times over something I have a deep desire in my heart for. I’ve learned after several years His soon & my soon are two very, very different things. *sigh*
Over & over I have had to give my thing back to Him. Sometimes we get in a tug-of-war over it. Sometimes I lay it down quick & easy-like because it’s a good day. Sometimes I say “Mine!” and I wallow in it & won’t let it go, landing empty again at the end of the day. It is what it is.
I am so grateful God doesn’t stop loving me or ever leave me when I am being that way. Or this way. He just stays with me. Always. And never stops loving & lifting me. Back where I belong.
And one sweet day my “soon” will arrive & I will look back & see clearly why it hadn’t happened before. When I wanted it. Like 20/20 or better I will see His plan was so much better than mine. Even though I kicked & screamed & begged. If you’ve been there you’re picking up what I’m putting down. You get me.
So here’s to our “soon” ~ may we trust & rest more than we wiggle whilst we wait ~
Much love & grace for the journey & may we stop & smell those proverbial roses more oft than not,
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. ~ Jeremiah 29:11
