Life is a journey. The past few months for me have been a learning process. Maybe it is because real life is has hit me. Being out on your own a few hours away from home really allows one to rely on God. Throughout the past few months, my journey has been anything but easy.
Every day presents an opportunity for you to be refined by God or to be broken. It is a decision that each one of us have to make daily: will I follow God’s journey? Or will I decide to forge my own path for what I know is “best”?
Often times, the journey that God has you on will leave you confused, frustrated, and tired. I like to view these times as the waiting room period. If you are at a point in your life right now where you are not receiving any answers or clarity on anything, you are simply in God’s waiting room. It is important to recognize that these are the times God uses to prepare you for something amazing.
If you have been waiting a long time for something, it might mean that God has something amazing planned for you. Instead of becoming frustrated and focusing on the negatives, recognize that this is a time God has given you to teach you and to prepare you for something great. We are all on a journey, and we are being refined by God each day.
So today, thank God if you are in the waiting room because He is refining you and giving you the opportunity to grow in Him. He is preparing you for something amazing in the plan that He has for you. After all, God’s plan exceeds any plan that we could ever imagine (Ephesians 3:20-21)
