This morning the pastor asked us to write down something we are prone to do that hinders our spiritual growth and causes disappointment in ourselves.
I wrote “having a lack of patience and trust in Gods plan.”
I folded the paper where I wrote those vulnerable words and placed it in my Bible with no intention of sharing them until God reminded me that this is no rare struggle.
I am hesitant to admit that I often feel waves of doubt, fear, impatience, and worry about the future. How grateful I am that it is during these times when I hear the quiet and still voice of my savior. When I say, “God I am scared” he says, “daughter you are loved and I will fight for you”
When I say, “God I am worried about this situation” he says, “trust me for I already have it figured it out”
For every “but” there is an unchanging truth. He lovingly reminds me of his promises every time I fail to believe that they still stand true for even me. He is writing my story in his perfect and unfailing wisdom, and he’s writing yours, too.
