I am always amazed at how readily God speaks. As soon as the thought crosses my mind, “Hm. I haven’t heard from God in a while…” within minutes, (if I can quiet myself), I hear from Him.
It occurs to me then, that it is not so much that I go through life waiting to hear from God, as it is that I go through life while God’s waiting for me to listen.
“If you had one hour to live, who would you call, what would you say, and why are you waiting?” -Stephen Levine
The longer we wait for something, the more we appreciate it when it arrives.
Don’t listen to the lies you tell yourself. Make no excuses. You deserve the life you want and no one is responsible for withholding that from you besides your own self! Wait on nothing. Except the Lord, our God. Wait on Him only and have faith that He will see you through this rough period of your life. God rewards action. Begin today, by taking strategic steps to put “life” back into your life. Sign up for activities, groups, volunteer, anything and everything that makes you feel alive!
Start living today. Start doing the things that you want to today. No excuses. No one knows what the future holds. Besides, what good does it do to live in the “one of these days” mindset? The life you have is today. The time to live it is now. Living and waiting are not mutually exclusive! But waiting to live is dangerous.
