Thank You for showing me that it’s cruel for me not to wait on Your timing. I am amazed on how little by little, I am beginning to see why I had to wait, and why I had to go through what I went through before I actually get there.
I learned that it’s because first and foremost You can do what You want to because You are God. You are the One who changes seasons and can create by words and destroy by words; You can pluck and plant, You can wound and heal. You are capable of everything and it’s only through Your lenses that I can see that what You do is what is good for me, even if I don’t understand. Thank You for showing me that what is good for me would not always feel good to me.
I also learned that I had to go through the waiting because I have to have that readyness to receive. You love me so much to not give me this promise when I am in a condition that when I receive, I would love the Promise more than You. Thank You that You are not a cruel God who give gifts before it is time.
While the Promise is yet to come into full bloom, dear God, I am thankful enough for the lessons I could have not treasured without all the waiting. The waiting allowed me to depend on You more as I question Your timeline…no more.
Thank You that You never are a day late from Your appointed time.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.
