Have you been facing constant obstacles or failure? Or maybe your lack of progress and constant rejections has now taken its toll on you. And now you may find yourself discouraged and stuck. Well, I am here to re-emphasize the fact to you that “IF THE DREAM IS BIG ENOUGH, THE FACT (simply) DON’T COUNT!” (more…)
I remember when Juanita Bynum’s song, “I don’t mind the waiting” came out a few years back. I must admit when I heard it, I balked at the idea because I DID mind the waiting. I have told Father my feelings on the matter on several occasions. And if I’m honest, it is still a struggle at times. If only I can get Him to move a little quicker….I would be happy. Or so I think.
You have been mulling in your mind how your situation will be resolved. Up and down the matter goes in your mind. You have searched for a solution but all you keep getting are setbacks that leave you scratching your head in utter wonder and (if the truth be told), disappointment.
There is a quote in the Bible that says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” (Proverbs 13:14, NIV). There is so much truth in this quote and it always resonates with us more where we feel we have hoped, prayed, waited, yet nothing seems to be happening.
Ok, so another year seems to be flying by and you don’t feel like you have made any progress with your goal(s) – for whatever the reason. The good news is it isn’t the end of the world. Tomorrow is another day and you can try again. No point crying over spilled milk, blaming yourself and/or others. The trick is to hope again.
If you have felt this way or are feeling like that now, I have a suggestion: Let Go!
Sounds easy enough but can be one of the hardest things for any of us to do. I believe one of the reasons is our fear of the consequence. But consider this: If you were to let go, what would happen? You fall into the capable hands of God. So there you are wanting to hold on and be heroic whereas God is just waiting for you to let go of the very thing you are clinging on to (which can’t save you, by the way, because you can’t save yourself) and fall right into His open arms. I tell you, when the storms of life come, I can think of no better place to be. So do yourself a favour and simply let go.
