Devotional Monday: In the Waiting

Isn't it hard when we just want to get to the next step? or we just feel stuck in the season of waiting or singleness, whatever it may be.

For me lately, I've been struggling with the singleness, thinking when's my turn, why everyone else (younger than me even) and not me.  Even though I do not feel this way all time, most of the time I am content. Knowing that in my singleness God is doing good things, and i am truly grateful for this time in my life.

But sometimes it is hard, and then I read this post by of one our awesome monthly contributors, and I am brought back to what this season of life is all about: trusting in his plans, and putting him first, even when we are in that season of waiting. waiting for this season of singleness to end, even though this time in our lives is truly a gift, and we should be soaking up every minute of it. It's still hard, it's hard not knowing what's next and yet wanting to know.

If you know me, i am not a patient person when it comes to waiting, and in this season of singleness, that's what it feels like. But I know that in spite of the ache of waiting upon my heart, putting my trust in his plans and his timing is always best. In those times, I am reminded that only he can satisfy the desires of my heart, and that he loves me more than I could even imagine. He loves me in my pain, in my brokenness and in my longing.

Isaiah 40:31 says, "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

With the words of the verse above I am reminded of what this season of singleness is all about, putting my trust in him, and being content in, and knowing that in his time everything will come together.
