Thinking Out Loud

I'm in a waiting place right now in my seems that I notice every small moment that is passing me by...

I want to lasso the many layers of life that are passing by so quickly...  Kinda sounds like I'm contradicting myself by saying I'm in a waiting place and yet Life is passing by so quickly...

Life is going fast and I'm struggling with whatever it is that God has in mind for me.  There are days, when I think I have it....I know where I'm suppose to be and then suddenly..LIFE changes,situations change... and I am off track and heading in a different direction.  

I do not believe that it is God's will for me to trade my joy for sorrow.  The truth is...I am the guilty one...who loses sight of my purpose and joy. 

Do you think that this conversation that I'm having with myself, has anything to do with not being content? I hope not!!

The truth is....I think that my life is on hold for a specific purpose...  I have other obligations that are happening right now and until these things are resolved...I will probably remain in this waiting place.

  Why did my wisdom not come sooner??  Like perhaps 10 or 15 years ago??

Just thinking out loud!!

God really does give us periods of waiting, for different reasons. We just need to stay the path and pray with thanks, and with the question of what does He want us to do? Our special purpose. Wisdom comes from life and from experiences. Young people have very little of this, but as we travel our journey we learn more and more.

Life is in a constant state of flux. I think it is how we handle these things that truly make the difference.

May God shower you with blessings,even as you wait. He does have something special for you,for each of us,but waiting is hard.

We don't usually understand until we are looking back in time. Then it makes sense. I have joy in my life but I see so much sadness around me. It makes life conflicted. Sending you holiday hugs tonight, Diane

You are right, sometimes we are in a waiting place. I hope this day and week brings you blessings.

i think this why they say "hindsight is 20/20" so hang in there-- it will all play out and you'll know the plan. Eventually.
In the meantime, enjoy the holidays.

Yes, I agree about the waiting place. There's always so much going on, and it's difficult to sort it out sometimes, but it all works out in the end. Take care

I like when you think out loud! It mirrors so many things I am going through myself. There are many instances in the Bible of waiting. God is working on us when we truly stay still and wait for him. You'd think it'd be an easy thing to do, but it's not! I admire your faith, Shug. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and insights. You are a blessing to many.
