Often times we’re SO desperate, so anxious, so eager for things to happen; relationships, marriage, babies, life changes like weight loss or recovery or health. We yearn for these things, let our lives revolve around them, allow ourselves to be consumed with a passion to find these things it seems everyone else has.
How quickly we pray to our God for these things. How vast is our search for His answers? It can span years! Years of praying and searching and hoping and seeking.
How often do we pause to remember that God has PERFECT timing. Not sort of good timing. Not oops I forgot about you timing. Not almost but not quite timing. PERFECT timing.
If you’re praying for something, maybe it’s time to adjust your desires to God, to becoming closer to Him, to healing ourselves before we can heal others, to loving ourselves before we enter into relationships, to holding our worth in God’s eyes not anyone here on Earth.
Lets start yearning for The Lord and a relationship with Him, then we will find what we’re looking for. Hearts that long for Jesus will long for only godly things; only then will God grant us the desires of our hearts.
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4
