Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV — To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
Currently, it is a season to wait.
Waiting upon God to guide and direct our family.
Waiting for my body to recover health.
Waiting for our property to sell.
Many years ago, during those final months of pregnancy God taught me that even in waiting there is work.
Normally I am unaware of the work, because I’m focusing on the waiting.
Unfortunately, allowing myself to fear with a thousand, “what if?”.
What a waste. Instead, I’m waiting on God with a different perspective.
Through these days of waiting I’m choosing to focus on the tasks and joys of each day.
To mentally check my thoughts into the here and now, without striving to guess and plan for the unknown.
It’s out of character for me.
I’ve always wanted to know “the plan” so I could prepare.
The LORD has been teaching me how good it is to simply rest in His plan.
He knows exactly what He is doing.
He has all the details sorted out.
When I need to know, as long as I am listening, He will tell me.
Where I run into trouble is when I go dashing ahead of Him and then realize I’ve left the side of my Master.
It’s difficult to hear God if I’m running away from Him, doing my own thing.
So, I’m waiting and working on the task at hand.
I’m learning to taste the joys of the season of waiting.
