Waiting On New Wrapping Paper
Throughout my recovery the question “Why?” was in the forefront of my mind. Like Job, I wanted explanations for my suffering. My spiritual maturing and painful refining required a lot of waiting on the Lord, and patience has never been a virtue I exuded. God was under no obligation to explain His actions, including that which He permitted in my life.
Resting in Him, even while under the shadow of His wings (Ps. 17:8), was difficult. At the ripe old age of 50, God was asking me to make a new life and a new start in Colorado. I felt like a tree uprooted from rich soil and transplanted in rocky, less fertile, DIRT. My roots were deep and established in Oregon. I resented how suddenly I had been ripped out of my community. It felt like a rude interruption at first, but now I see that it was a Divine interruption.
The foggy journey I had to travel was leading uphill, and I was feeling so weak. Leaning on God’s strength was the only way I could get to my feet and move forward. It wasn’t long before I noticed Curiosity and Fear walking beside me. They wanted to know all about my future, but were afraid of what they would discover.
There is more to my story but let’s move on to Day Five of Chapter 7…..
Your existence was established before time itself. You created time for our benefit. Please help me in becoming more patient and teach me how to wait on You. I want to train my ear to recognize Your voice, even within the chaos of my day. Putting You first needs to be a priority in my life!
Send encouragement my way, as I wait on Your promises, and for the answers burning in my heart. Please, wipe away all fear when the path I travel is blocked from my sight and my future seems unclear. May my feet remain firm as they stand upon the Rock, the living Word. Help me to understand Your ways for I want to gain a heart of wisdom and knowledge. Amen.
1) Write down questions in your heart or blessings you are personally waiting for God to answer.
2) Write a prayer of patience and inquire of God about His delays concerning your prayer requests.
3) Take a moment to reflect. See if God has already answered your prayer requests or questions. It may be in a different way than the one you expected. Write down your thoughts.
4) Read Romans 12:12 and write down the three things listed as Fruit of the Spirit. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
