The waiting is the hardest part

I always come back to this: “The waiting is the hardest part”. God drops revelation  into your spirit concerning your destiny and thus the process begins. You struggle with the prompting and, hopefully you count the cost and finally you decide to submit to the idea and later to the process. The idea of walking in your destiny requires change in many areas of your life. This change will require more courage than you think you have. There is, however, something grand about stepping out of “safety” and into life. Somehow He gives you the courage that you could never have had on your own. You begin the preparation  in whatever format that it is required. You return to school, you go to that first meeting, you create that profile, your schedule that appointment,  you make that phone call, you take that first step or first run. You have done your part. You do the hard work, you sacrifice even in the face of scorn or rejection from those who fail to understand your vision. You accomplish the goal, you cross the finish line and now what? Sometimes  the next step or steps are out of your hands. Sometimes you need divine  intervention or at least divine timing but His timing always requires the waiting. It’s  kind of His thing. Not to torture us but to complete the character work needed in us for us to walk into the next phase in fullness and blessing but I am not going to deceive you, it is never fun and His timing is never quick. It is always perfect but never quick. You can plan and scheme or you can even jump ahead but don’t. You have come this far by faith and hard work so trust the process. There will be times where you wait and anyone who tells you otherwise is not your friend. Wait for Him and with Him for guidance for the next step. I won’t  say wait patiently because I don’t even know what that means but wait. He is there, He is working, He is faithful and His plan for your life is awesome.
