God’s Waiting Room; A Safe Place

Are you currently praying and believing God for some things? Do you feel like you have been waiting for a life time? Well you are in God’s waiting room. You must understand that His time is not our time and that we must trust that His timing is perfect for our lives. The bible tells us:

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ESV

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

Psalm 90:4 ESV

For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.

Psalm 27:14

King James Version (KJV)
14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

So enjoy your time in God’s waiting room. It is your safe place drenched in peace and laced in love. So wait on the Lord and as you wait build your faith and stay encouraged. Use this time to inspire and pour into others and to learn God’s character on an even deeper level. Don’t use this time to try to take the lead and help God out. He doesn’t need your help. Yu must wait in love and with great expectancy that the promises of God are blossoming into reality each and every day.

Thankful at all times

We all know we have so much to be thankful for. In our hearts this is a known fact. Yet when tests and trials arise we forget the good, the blessings, the simple things that makes us smile and we feel frustrated, trapped, forgotten and sometimes worthless.

I’m learning more and more with age and life experiences that bad times won’t last always. I’ve learned that tears are always followed by laughter and that seasons surely change even though they may not be in any particular order.

I’ve also learned that no matter what happens that ultimately if you can put your hurt and disappointed emotions to the side, the most important thing is your health and life and the health and life of your family. That is ultimately the biggest two categories to be thankful for. Because those two entities are priceless and can’t be changed one way or the other with money, influential people or your career status.

Therefore on today I’m thankful for the health and life of me and each and every family member. I pray today you are thankful for what may seem like the little things from a day to day lens when nothing is out of order in our lives.

I pray that joy, laughter and genuinely good times fill your atmosphere and hearts on today. And that you find the courage to be truly thankful at all times in all things.

Staying Faithful

Life will throw you some curves that you didn’t anticipate at all. You will find yourself angry, discouraged and confused.  It will cause you to question your faith and your religion. But just know that through God’s grace and mercy and your faith in God that you will come through just like pure gold and give God the glory.

Sign of the Times

When I was younger my grandma used to say that certain things were surely a sign of the times. She was speaking spiritually. I still didn’t get it until I heard a prince song one day called Sign of the Time. This song and his movie Graffitti Bridge painted the clearest picture of just what my grandma was telling me. This movie by Prince didn’t get the recognition it deserves because it was way before its time and many didn’t get it. But the song was embraced by mainstream radio.

In light of all that is happening today with the presidency I once again hear my grandma’s voice in my head and heart saying, ‘baby doll it’s a sign of the time see Jesus is soon to come.’ Love is gone and hatred is overflowing in the hearts of many. It’s ok to judge and not like others because they are different from you or because they are viewed as a threat. Makes you wonder where is the love. We need love and unity today more than ever.

Just like in Prince’s movie Graffitti Bridge when he asked God those hard questions and wrestled with the why factor of life and ultimately had a clearer understanding through his experiences with an angel sent to help him in the midst of being hated on and judged. His main point was that we need love. We need to walk in it and embrace and hold on to it because in the end that is the greatest power we can hold on to in our hearts. And in the song Sugn of the time he gave a breakdown of all the things that simply were wrong with the way things were being handled.

However, this intensely divisive state we are in won’t be rectified in a few hours. We are now inside a cycle established by those who dared to open the Pandora box of differences and it has set is on a path of possible destruction. I don’t see either side backing down. This is a new generation who will not conform to the rules and demands of the past. They value their individuality and many see their worth and are demanding their right to the American Dream.

The new face of civil war is at hand. We must pray and put all of our trust in God. For He alone is our King. The way and the light is truly God. So be encouraged and just know that on earth there is a pending transferring of power but in the heavens and on a spiritual level God’s power will never be transferred from Him. For He will never change He is the one force that will always remain.

Be blessed and encouraged for God is still in control and in the midst of all of this His love abounds.
