What Are You Waiting For

Wendy Gunn at Faith's Firm Foundation

Dear Homemaker,

“Life is what happens to us while we’re making other plans.”  This is a saying on a plaque, but one of the truest truths I’ve found in life.

Some of us are waiting for something to happen, and THEN we will live life. Then life will begin.  Then we’ll walk with God in the way that we’ve always dreamed, and that we know He wants us to.

If you wait until “things settle down” or “it’s not so busy” or “the baby sleeps through the night” or “the toddler gets trained,” or whatever, to respond to life the way God would have you, you will never live for Him.  This IS life.  It’s the life that the Lord gave you, and He doesn’t want you to let it slip by.  Not being so crazy busy that you don’t really even connect with the experiences, don’t really even FEEL, you just check off the minutes, the tasks, the things to do, get ready, get set go.  One more meal put on the table, go wherever I have to today, do the next thing, one more busy day accomplished…

It’s alright to say,

I can’t do it.

I need help.

Just say it to the right One. The One True God Who is the I Am is also the I Can.  And because of Him, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13)

Are you at the end of your rope? Have you hit the wall? When you go down, go down to your knees.  When you’ve lost it, go to Jesus Christ and find your all in all. When you have no answers, go to Him Who IS the Answer.

Look up.  Cry out.  Listen and Wait. He will not fail you. He loves you.

Don’t live one more day without engaging. Don’t go through the motions. Stop. Ask Him for help. Ask Him to guide you. Pray for specific wisdom about your schedule and life. He’ll show you what to do and what to change. Oh, and don’t look at anyone else’s life and compare.

Now, live today.  And live it for the Lord.

Philippians 4:19-20:

 19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

 20Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    1. The Lord knew that I needed to hear this more than anyone. Thank you, Phyllis, for sharing with me that God used what He put on my heart to help someone else. I’m glad you were blessed by it:)
