When you just heard that your best friend, whom you’ve shared the same sentiments with about the issues of the heart, now has a boyfriend and in love. And there you are, single, mind confused, heart broken by the pain of the past, you just can’t help but look on your self. Ask questions that you know are dumb and pointless, tempted to have self-pity, wallow in sadness and over analyze your situation. Again.
Yes, you are genuinely happy for her. But you just can’t help but ask, “How about me?” (I know, dumb.)
But a midst all these temptations to feel sad and left out, there comes the reality of sadness, loneliness, but just enough for you to run to the Healer, just enough for you to realize how weak and fragile you are. Just enough to throw yourself at the feet of Jesus and seek comfort and peace at His Presence.
The pain, the sadness that you’ve been feeling will eventually get you to your utmost dependence in Jesus Christ. That He can make you new again, feel whole. That He is what you need.
This pain, will eventually build up your faith.
That all by faith, you will continue to believe that you are loved, you are complete no matter what the season you’re in. All by faith, you will continue to believe that your great Healer is preparing you for that glorious time that you will be in the new season, where everything is right.
You will continue to believe, All by Faith, that God is preparing you for that relationship where He will be honored and glorified. Yes, it is a big role to fill in, and God wants you to be fully ready before handing you that gift.
So you resolved in believing, that this is your season now, Waiting. Actively waiting. Seeking Jesus with all your heart, seeking His will for your life, building a right foundation of faith that will get you through places you never expected. Enjoying every beautiful gift that He is placing in your way, all for a special purpose.
Concretely building your conviction, your standards that cannot be shaken by cheap words or actions or by your ever changing emotions.
As beautifully written on this blog from Mandy Hale that I came across earlier:
Long we wait for the promise. But we do not wait alone. He is here, in the waiting, in the praying, in the weeping, in the hoping, in the doubting, in the trusting, in the wishing…HE IS HERE.
God is with me, I have all that I need.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. – Ecclesiastes 3:1
Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” -Psalm 27:14
