Impatience

This morning, we made the discovery that we were out of bread….as we were making lunches.  It was decided that it would be easier to go buy something that try to find an alternative (since the little man eats nothing).  The first grader was delivered to school by my sweet husband, then I went to the store.  As I was dropping his lunch off at school, I worried about whether they would get his lunch right to him.  I know my boy….if the lunch didn’t show up quickly, he would be convinced he would have to starve through lunchtime!  It seems laughable.  After all, I haven’t forgotten to feed him yet, why would he think I would forget him now? 

Oh wait….uh oh….isn’t that exactly what we do to God?  “Ummm….God, I have to make a decision next week and you haven’t given me a clue yet!”  “God, I need money….I’ll be out of gas soon!”  (or food or whatever)  “God, I’m lonely, I’ve been waiting forever!”  Now, think about it.  Our God created the world out of nothing….in six days.  Do you seriously think He can’t handle your problem?  Just give Him some time.  He’ll be on time.  He hasn’t forgotten you yet, I don’t think today is gonna be the first time!  (all said while looking in the mirror!).

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Philippians 4:6  NLT

Be blessed and tell someone you love them!

About meanderingswithgod

I Write. It’s what I do. It’s as vital a part of me as breathing. I write when I’m happy. I write when I’m sad. I write when I don’t understand. Or when I understand a little too clearly. I write when God’s speaking to me. And when I’m speaking to Him. And, more often than not, it comes out in rhythm and rhyme. In my words, you’ll find laughter and tears, pain and triumph, confusion and clarity. In my words, if you bother to search, you’ll find me. So, it is with both excitement and trepidation that I begin. This blog. This writing that’s been so long coming. My words. God’s words. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to tell the difference. Mine are clumsy, His are eloquent. I hope, as you read my verbal meanderings, that you’ll be blessed and find yourself searching for Him.
