“Enjoy it,” I heard.
My mind flooded with noise from various areas of my life. Lies were whispered to me. Discontentment flooded my soul.
“God, I mean, will it every happen to me? I packed up my life and moved back home. I am living back at home with my parents. When will the time come to move out? When will I every find the right house to call mine? House hunting is emotionally and physically exhausting. Where will I find my community? What church do you want me to get involved with? Will I ever meet a person I want to spend the rest of my life with? (or maybe more like someone who WANTS to be with me? Ha!)”
Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
You know, I am incredibly thankful for a Father who KNOWS me and knows what is GOOD for me. It is not a matter of what; in fact, it is ALL about the when. As we listen and walk with Him, desires are planted in our hearts while we are here. When we experience those desires, we should be practically, spiritually and emotionally taking steps towards those desires and patiently waiting on the Lord’s timing of Him bringing them to fruition.
The enemy’s lies should be a fleeting thought in the wind for me. My real struggle is that I overanalyze and worry about the very thing that God has called me to simply “enjoy.” Enjoying and trusting God leads to contentment and consistency in your life.
Instead of us growing weary in the wait time, I pray for the ability to focus on the beauty of the Father and how much He loves us kids. Simply put, He wants us to BE kids and ENJOY having Him and only Him.
