Delayed But Not Denied

Sometimes do you find yourself praying and hoping that your breakthrough is moments away, only to receive a big fat NO!

That's been my reality throughout the past two months. Two months ago I stepped out in faith, and walked away from 10 years in the medical field to help expand the non profit myself and another founded years ago. Right when I walked away excited for what was in store, the non profit folded. Since then, no income in place, no job to wake up to. My dream quickly turned into living a tragic nightmare. 

I feel as if I'm getting so close to answers, a call I've been waiting for, a job opportunity, financial stability, a meeting to launch me into my career and there I wait, frozen in place, as if any moment could be the game changer. 

I pray daily for contentment, peace and the strength to find joy in the trials, but to be quite honest, my days have seemed more rough than smooth. I realize I have a choice to make. I can throw my self a pity party and get frustrated during this season of waiting, or I can sit back and try to understand what lessons there are to learn and grow from right where I'm at. I have to take this day by day. I am going to choose to wake up and be grateful for the things I do have, like family, friends, becoming an Author, and not focusing on the things I don't. I have to keep in perspective all the times I've cried out to God asking for help and answers, and he showed up and delivered me from those situations. I know all to well that Gods plan is the best plan, and even though I can't see the big picture right now, he  is working behind the scenes lining everything up, now I have to put the work in and Trust.

Maybe you find yourself in a similar situation, waiting to catch a break, hoping any moment your circumstances will change. Maybe in a relationship, a job choice, a diet plan, finances. Can I reassure you, you are not alone. I encourage you and myself daily to learn to trust Gods timing and his plans for our lives. It usually doesn't show up looking like we expect it to, however, his ways are far better than our ways and his timing is always perfect. During the waiting period, lets focus on being content, right here and now, lets find joy in the trials, peace in our circumstances, and faith that our breakthrough is right around the corner. Most importantly, lets not miss an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with God.

Until next time...
