Your Own Pace

A lot of us are rushing to get our lives together why?  Maybe, we are being rushed by our family and friends. Maybe we feel like we are being left behind or simply because we see everyone around us are getting things done before us but who cares?

You should not have to rush just to get something. Just because your friends are getting married, having babies, finishing school, and becoming CEO of their jobs does not mean you have to rush. When the time is right God will bless you with what you need. You should not have to rush just because people are telling you to get it done. Your season will come just enjoy where you are now.

Life should not be impressing your friends just by rushing to get your life together. Continue to work at your own pace, God will take care of the rest. Some people work faster than others, so why feel like your missing out on life? People should not rush you instead they should pray for you. Do be jealous of what others have but be thankful for you do have as of right now. Be grateful for where you are. Your time will come.

Losing Focus

We all struggle with something in our lives but most of us are struggling with relying on God and putting our faith in him. Why? We get so caught up in the world that we forget about God. You feel that tug on your heart telling us to go spend time with him but we push him back like he is one of our assignments in school or work.

Some of place God on a bookshelf but it’s time that we take him down from it. God wants us to regain that relationship that was once there but no longer is. He wants us to rely on him but how we can if there is no communication. God just wants us to have in him so he can provide you with whatever it is that you need.

I struggled with having faith in God but he waited on me and did not give up on me. Constantly, I would think to myself why is it taking so long? When will I get it? Then, I realized God is patient so he wanted me to be humble and trust in his timing. I lost my faith in God because i was too busy relying on others. I got caught up in what other people were doing when God was waiting me to rely on him again.

No matter how many time we lose our focus on God, he will always be there waiting for us to rely on on him. In order to restore that relationship with God it starts with you. Not your mom, dad, sister, brother, wife, husband, or whoever it is. It does not start with them it starts with you. Let your faith be bigger than your fear. Take God off the bookshelf, regain that relationship, he is waiting on you.

Patiently Waiting

What is your purpose of dating? What is your reason to be in a relationship? Are you for love or approval? Some of you get into relationships because you see your friends are getting into a relationship. Others simply just want to feel loved by someone, but how do you know if they are actually happy? Do you know what goes on behind close doors? You probably do not know some of you may know. Ask yourself this, are you willing to commit to a guy or a girl? Are you ready to commit?

I know these are a lot of questions but it is important to know what you are getting yourself into. If marriage is not the goal then why are you dating? I know I am not a dating expert nor a well… whatever you want to call it but i tell you this… when you allow God to take control of your love life he will bless you with the one who will truly love you just the way you are. You spend your time dating and getting your heart broken instead of waiting on God to reveal the one that he has created for you.

You see all these famous stars getting divorce and dating each other but just imagine if they had waited on God, there would not be all these crazy situations going on. God wants you to wait patiently, be humble, and do not rush him. When the time is right, he will send you the one that you have been waiting for. God is so amazing!!! Just think, you are walking somewhere or doing something then God says, there is your future wife or husband, but of course God will reveal to the guy first so he can pursue you.

I am learning to wait on God. God knows what my heart truly desires for and he knows what guy will win my heart. All i need to do is pray, be humble, and trust Gods plan for my life.

You do not know everything, tell yourself that. Waiting takes time, you not going to know right away until God shows you. I always heard that the one that God has planned for you would be the one that you unexpected to be. I know that many of you have a childhood friend that you known for your whole life and you had a crush on each other since then but how do you know you are meant to be? Just because they know everything about do not mean a thing. You could know someone your whole life and have you played like a piano versus someone who you known for less than half your age and get treated they way you should be.

We all need to be like Jacob who waited for fourteen years for Rachel or like Boaz. We get so eager to be in a relationship that we end up getting our hearts broken. Then, we start to complain how men and women are worthless, and do not know how to treat each other right. Well if you waited on God you would not have to complain.

Proverbs 18:22 says, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and shall receive favor from the Lord.”

So will you patiently wait on your Boaz and be like Jacob and Rachel? or do you want to end up will with another broken heart?
