The past few days I’ve been filled with questions. Questions about when I’ll attain my heart’s desires. As I’ve stated in previous post, I have things that I am wanting. I like to believe that the things I want are on their way to me… but sometimes I have moments… days… times… where I allow frustration to set in.
Where I’m like ok…
Come out, come out wherever you are…
I mean forreal….
I did something different than I usually do… I usually hit one or two of my closest friends up… express how I’m feeling just to have them redirect me or help me to see things from a different view.. then I would pray.
This time, throughout the day… moments when my mind became consumed with the “what if’s” “when? what time?” and “How much longer?” I simply said a little prayer and requested that God helps redirect my thoughts.
The scripture he gave me was Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
Reminding me that there is a time for everything… something about that brings me back down and calms my soul…. it reassures me that the things I want will happen in due time.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says:
He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]— yet man cannot find (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (his overall plan) from the beginning to the end.
That verse in itself makes everything right…. I mean come on sis, the thought that God is making everything beautiful AND appropriate IN ITS TIME…..not only that but God has planted a sense of divine purpose in the human heart (stay with me now, this is referencing my heart’s desires) futher explained as a mysterious longing which nothing… i repeat NOTHING under the sun can satisfy, except God.
Not only that but I CAN’T comprehend it!
Why am i so hard headed??!? God shows me right here in plain text that i won’t comprehend it and still time after time i find myself trying figure out when things will come to pass in my life.
My intentions were to blog about me being ready for several things. I worked up this whole spill about why I was going to proceed (with my best judgement) into what i felt was a well deserved rant… BUT… right in the midst of my foolishness God sent his word to remind me.
Reminding me that i need to keep my eyes fixed on him.
Sooooo…. Imma go take my seat.. and keep my eyes where they should be.
There’s a season for everything… I’ll be content in the one im in until God moves me to the next one.
