Are We There Yet?


“Have faith in the Lord and do what is right, dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness, delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord, trusting in Him, and He will change your heart and bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noon day sun.” -Psalm 37:3-6

Have you ever felt like you’re on a long journey with God in a car and you are asking Him, “Are we there yet?”  Have you ever felt like you have been praying for something for a long time, and feel like God hasn’t answered your prayer yet?  Maybe you feel like you’ve been going through the same sexual struggle for years.  Maybe you have an unfulfilled desire and you’re praying and just waiting.  God is not ignoring you.  You are His daughter.

Keep seeking hard after God!  You do not know what is happening in the heavenlies.  When you put your trust and hope in God, you just don’t know that God is working on your behalf.  

As children of God He is building your character and wants you to become what you need to become for the call He has for your life.  Keep your faith in Him through the process of seeking and waiting.  

Respect the process God has you in.  Let Him work in and through you!  Be faithful where you are and with what you have during this season, trusting HIM to finish the good work He has started in you.  

Although it appears nothing is happening, or that you’re not there yet, do not give up hope, do not fret, you are closer than you think!

There can be so much going on at once, great things and rough things, but HE is faithful and one thing He is teaching me among with 100 other things is-- respect the process. 

The process of healing, the process of forgiving, the process of persevering in prayer, the process of molding, the process of loving the unlovable, the process of becoming ALL He wants us to be.

I do not know what process you are in, but know that your breakthrough is in your sacrifice.  So stay on the surgery table, fix your eyes on the one who loves you, Jesus, and let HIM work in you!

Remember this.

"When people choose to withdraw far from a fire, the fire continues to give warmth, but they grow cold. When people choose to withdraw far from light, the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness. This is also the case when people withdraw from God."  –Augustine
