I am sitting on a bench on my front deck and even though I am outside, I still feel contained. Don‘t we all?
As I take a bite of my cereal, my mind starts wondering and the flood gates open.
When will I be fully- healed?
When will I get married?
When will the lockdown be over?
I’m sure you have a WHEN.
I’ll be happy WHEN this happens…
I feel with the lockdown in place many of my friends and family feel we are all stuck in the hallway without the lights on, looking for the front door to open. We are stuck in the waiting.
I take another bite-full of cereal and it occurs to me that I have to stop thinking about the waiting and just be happy today. Maybe God is teaching me patience in the waiting ? Maybe he is preparing something better for me on the other side of the doorway as I wait.
Right now, we are all waiting for the lockdown to end, but what is God teaching us in this time of waiting?
Maybe patience ?
Maybe to trust him even though the hallway is dark ?
What is he teaching you ?
For me, I know he is saying,” I got you, Lisa. Just wait.”
God has you too. Trust the day to day, even when it is hard and yes, sometimes boring.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have been single for the last twenty years raising my two beautiful children, Jake ( 26)and Tarah (25). I am a originally from Chicago but by listening to “The Whisper Within” I have recently moved to Southern California. I love to run, hike, bike, swim, and practice core yoga but have been sick for the last few years fighting Lyme disease. GOD will heal me but in the meantime, I choose to be happy and not settle for ordinary. I believe in the Fairytale, crave the butterflies, and surrender that God has the plan.
