Or not so, as the waves of frustration have crashed on the shore of recovery. The one thing I’ve learnt, out of the hundreds of grrrr moments I’ve experienced lately- is that while you don’t necessarily get to choose the circumstances- you get to choose how you respond. So many stories I could tell.
Ever been in a stage, season, wilderness of life where you just want it to let up. For something to go right. Me too. All to often thou I’ve become impatient with the goings on and forgotten that life is not so much about the destination but the journey (oh that word, just makes my skin crawl🤣). Because as annoying as it is, we will be traveling to the destination until the day we die.
Life, may have many- stop and sit, camp and live here a moment moments 😉. But eventually we become restless for the next. Unfortunately, if we don’t learn to be patient and at peace in the discomfort of a transient life, we make it hard for ourselves and those who do this thing called life with us.
Transient, I hear you ask. Yep, if your growing, your changing and if your changing you are learning new things, desiring new things and capable of new things. Growth leads to movement. Much growth lead to much movement, shift and change in attitudes, perspective and skill. This all leads to desiring change, new things, the next thing- the next stage.
However, sometimes we have to wait for it to unfold. And that- is the place where patience must come and unfold in your thinking. Your believing and your decision making. Because even in the waiting, growth is happening. Dare, I even suggest that more growth comes in the waiting season, the apparent dormant season than any other.
Think of an iceberg. Or a seed pushing thru the soil as it grows, we can’t see most of what’s going on beneath the surface. But that’s where the majority of growth comes. The root system pushes down, in preparation for the seed to climb up and break the soil. Da dah! It pushes thru and we celebrate the seen, not knowing or understanding the effort, growth and change that have occurred to see that moment unfold. It’s the Same with your life, precious one. God is wanting to grow something in you- firstly I believe a relationship with Him and from there where communication flows freely- purpose! Purpose for now, purpose for later, purpose that makes you believe that each day you live and breathe, your breath is vital, valuable and yep- purpose-FILLED!
So I encourage you today- stay patient and connected to Him when it all seems ‘blar‘. He’s got you. He knows you and He understands. Talk to Him about it.
Love you guys
Until next time- Happy Pondering xx
