Hosea 12:6 – Therefore, return to your God, Observe kindness and justice, And wait for your God continually.
What is your heart attitude when God tells you to wait? I’m going to be real, mine isn’t pleasant. Patience isn’t a gift of mine, its something I have been really challenged to work on.
I feel like my life has been one big season of waiting, especially in these past few months. As many of you know Gideon and I have submitted all the paper work for our finance visa. God has called me back to live in Nebraska and settle down with the love of my life. An absolute blessing that I struggle to wrap my head around at times. This process can take up to 9 months, we are believing for a shorter time frame. But for now we wait.
Psalm 27:14 – Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
The closer I get to God and the more time I spend with him I understand now that there is preparation that needs to be done before I embark on the GREATEST adventure ever. I’m not going to lie, long distance sucks, ALOT. But God is taking us on a journey of trusting him in a way we both haven’t before.
I’ve recently had a radical heart realisation that in my waiting God is choosing me, pursuing me and loving me. In my waiting he wants to know me. I can’t tell you how much he is calling me to surrender, trust and give my all to him in this season. I feel like my heart is becoming so aligned with his plan and his will in the unknowns that it’s making it okay and bearable to conquer each day. My waiting isn’t wasted, my waiting is a blessing.
About a month ago I started a study by the daily grace co. called ‘walking the path of wisdom’. It’s a study on proverbs. I am learning to be a God-fearing woman of Christ and I flipping LOVE it.
The other night I opened up to the chapter of marriage. As the words danced across the page, shedding light into my heart I began to weep. In that moment, I felt honoured, so ridiculously honoured that God called me for such a time as this to be a wife to my sweet Gideon. I am learning what it looks like to be a proverbs 31 woman as well as the importance of the role of a wife and through that I am confronted and challenged in the most beautiful way possible.
How amazing that God is taking this precious time before I leave for America to prepare me to be the best version of myself in him for Gideon.
Proverbs 31:10 -11 Who can find a wife of noble character? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will not lack anything good.
I don’t know if you are facing a season of waiting but if you are, I challenge you to change your perspective and find the lesson God is trying to teach you. Ultimately, he knows best. He’s planned out your whole life and he has the power to turn your situation around, he is a way maker and a God of abounding grace. Let him invade your heart and rest in this beautiful promise Isaiah 60:22 – …At the right time, I, the LORD, will make it happen.
