the Waiting Season

When things are not going well I know what to do. I go to God in prayer for myself and for others. I meditate on His Holy Word. I remove myself from any distractions that I may be able to hear God speaking to me in the various ways at His disposal. I listen. Get quiet within myself. I recall the struggles I had in the past and how God brought me through. I worship God.

When things are going well. I pray for others and I thank God for His grace and mercy. I reflect on the moments or days when things were not as I wanted them to be and the many moments and days I saw God’s hand move in my life. I meditate on a particular Scripture that expresses my joy and the love in my heart. I worship God.

But what do I do when nothing’s really wrong. When things are just ok. What do I do when my needs are met even though some of my desires or requests have not been fulfilled.

I WILL WAIT. I WILL LISTEN. I WILL REMEMBER.

In my waiting season I hope to continue to pray for myself and for others. I hope to know God is present even though my senses tell me something different.

In my waiting season I will have a heart of gratitude. I will love and listen. I will hope. I will stay anchored to the Lord. I will rejoice for my God has blessed me in many ways some known and seen and a lot of blessings already done but not seen yet.

In my season of waiting I will love fiercely and show mercy. I will not let the world distract me from my calling. I will be centered in my faith and know my God is on the throne of grace.

I will honor my God in my waiting season. I will worship in His presence.

Today’s Meditation

For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

Philippians 4:8 AMPC

Bjc➕, 4.29.17

Today’s Meditation

All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 AMPC
