On most days, I wake up before the family and sneak downstairs (okay, we only have 3 stairs in the RV but I’m so giddy to say we have stairs that I had to throw that in there 😉)… and try to get my daily time in God’s Word and work done for my wellness business. I love starting my day with the Word of God. And I love that my job involves sharing health and wellness from my iPhone and I can knock it out first thing in the am and be present with my family all day (well most days 😉). He fills me to overflowing and I can for sure tell when I start the day without my time with Him (no worries if you prefer to have a devotional time other times of the day… for me in this season, mornings work best).
Well yesterday started off kinda hectic and crazy… and well… needless to say… my time with the Lord didn’t happen in the am. I had a somewhat stressful morning…
And just after lunchtime… I found a quiet moment… a pause in the day… where I could finally spend time with my Lord.
My sweet aunts and I have been studying the Bible together for over a year now and are currently participating in a study called Mindset Victory (if you want more info on that study let me know 🙌🏼).
Well… just as I sat to look up the scriptures for the days study… my phone died. 🤦🏻♀️ I was currently outside at our picnic table studying so instead of taking the time to go inside and scramble for a charger… I felt in my heart I just needed to open my Bible and read something else… I’m pretty sure God was saying… “no more distractions… just SIT and be STILL before ME.”
Well… I listened and turned to Habakkuk chapter 2.
The words from the thin page jumped right out at me and I knew those were the words the Lord had for me that day!
“The righteous shall life by FAITH.”
Just before those words, are commands to “write the vision… that the vision awaits its appointed time… if it seems slow… wait for it.”
Wow! What truthful words to hear!
How many of us are in a period of waiting?
My current neighbor at the RV park is facing a huge decision right now… one she and her husband must completely trust the Lord on. I love that we were able to discuss this scripture yesterday and how it applies to her current situation.
But doesn’t it apply to all of us?
Shouldn’t we all be dreamers/have goals and visions?
Dream BIG! Pray BOLD prayers!
Live a life of faith, trusting God every step of the way.
Sometimes when we have a dream or a goal and things don’t seem to be moving in the direction we want… we come to a crossroads and must wait.
When we pray to the Lord He always has an answer.
Regardless the end result… His ways and His plans are always best!
