I stepped into my season of preparation, some time between the end of last year and the beginning of this year. It was like one day i just felt the shift…things were different.
God had been working on some things in me.. so that he can work through me. There were things that I wanted, that I honestly hadn’t prepared for. I can’t think of how many times I would say I was ready for my Husband, ready for my blog to take off, ready to start some type of group that encourages and uplifts women… But had I prepared?
Where was my preparation? What had I done previously, to ensure that i would be ready when God gives me the “Go” ?
Really, before this year… not much
and if we’re being honest, the little preparation I thought i was doing in one area, i was in no form or fashion “preparing” in the correct way.
Tonight during bible study my pastor talked about preparing for the things you want. When he said that, it was like a refresher to my soul. A reminder to my mind and heart that I needed to make sure that I am still preparing for the things I want/the things God has for me.
I know you’re wondering why i put the slash between “want” and “things God Has for me” Simply because I WANT THE THINGS GOD HAS FOR ME.
Really there shouldn’t be a difference.
Preparation takes diligence and patience. See you can start preparing today for things that wont happen for another 5 years ( now, im just being extra but it’s true).We don’t really like to think about the things we want not happening for years to come. We live in a day and age where we want everything quick and fast.
I think it’s important that we remember to prepare as if it’s happening tomorrow and be of good courage if it doesn’t, because it will in HIS perfect timing.
