2 Peter 3:9 ” The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
Your journey is meant to bring you closer to God even when it feels the exact opposite, for He wants to bring you closer to Him and doesn’t want to lose you.
I have doubted God over and over again in our struggles. I’ve so often told Him that I COULDNT DO THIS, and that I couldn’t handle it anymore. Obviously that’s not true because God will not give us more than we can take. Through all of this I can say without a single doubt: God has been with me, and hasn’t left.
But…… I’m ashamed of my attitude and at times reactions of it all. I let myself get bitter at times, and judge parents who I thought didn’t deserve to be. ( Who am I to say who deserves something, or that I would deserve it more than someone else.) I allowed anger in my heart, and thought I shouldn’t have to wait. No matter what your journey, its part of a carefully designed wonderful plan to bring us to Christ, if we choose to have the right waiting attitude.
Do you believe this? Are you willing to wait with a good attitude? When you look back on your journey (even if your still in the middle of it) what will you see? More importantly what do you want to see? Are you able to say” Lord no matter what, I WILL PRAISE YOU?”
Heavenly Father, I will praise You! Lord forgive my attitude and revive it into an attitude of joy. So many of Your children have had to wait and we can see that there is such an amazing purpose for it all. May we trust in Your plan. In Jesus Name, with love and praise. AMEN.
