You ever feel like you’re in a period of waiting? Like full-on state of limbo waiting? Like it feels like nothing is happening right now but once this begins…THEN…
Well, that’s how I’m feeling right now. I am full on in the tension of the in-between.
I am in-between moving from my home in Fort Worth with roommates I love and friends who know me deeply to moving to South Carolina for a new work project where I barely know anyone.
And I am so pumped for this change, do not get me wrong. But it has been more challenging than ever for me in this season to remain grateful for the period of waiting I’ve been given.
“Why can’t it all just happen right now, God??” That’s what I feel like I’m asking him each day. But I KNOW there is purpose in this time. There is reason behind the wait. There is growth. There is perfect purpose in every season, no matter how exciting it may seem.
The biggest thing I’ve learned through this season of waiting, where I really don’t feel like I’m doing much or accomplishing much, is that just because I feel like nothing is moving, God is still moving and always using me. He never stops. He never sits around and just waits for me to get somewhere or meet someone or do something to use me. His love never ends.
Just because I feel like the best is yet to come doesn’t mean that God isn’t still giving me His very best for me today.
There is a lot of unknown in my life right now in multiple areas of my life. This unknown usually leaves me feeling scared, but this time, it leaves me feeling excited…and a little scared still. I’m beginning to enjoy these periods of uncertainty because it strengthens my faith so much. It makes me confident in the One I can always be certain of. Who knows what is going to happen in the next few months, but I can’t wait to find out.
Trust the wait.
Embrace the uncertainty.
Enjoy the beauty of becoming.
When nothing is certain, anything is possible.
