Have you ever been at point in your life where you grew tired of waiting.. If you're like me, you sometimes wondered, "why me?" Why do I constantly have to deal with difficult complex people who get on my nerves where I literally cringe whenever they're in the room. And why do I have to work in an unbearable place I hate or maybe you've wondered... Will my life ever get better? I love what my cousin text'ed me: “Even though you may feel down at a point from the wait, God is just molding you into a person impervious to obstacles and attacks from the devil. Some people are in the era of their life that's preparing them for their future.” That's profound!
.
God allows certain things to happen to show you what you got in you. In other words, to discover how much strength and potential you got. You can never know what you're built out of if you never been tested, bent, attacked, and broken. Before things can become available in the market they have to go through stages of testing. Before God can take you to the next level He has to prepare you for your next assignment. You may be "called" but that doesn't mean you're prepared for your calling. God knew the capacity of what Job could handle. He (God) was the one who suggested His servant Job to satan to be tested because He knew what Job was built out of.
.
Could it be possible what's happening in your life and what you're going through was allowed by God to prepare you for your future. It's just a matter of time before your breakthrough; It's just a matter of time everything you lost returns back double for your trouble; It's just a matter of time you step into what God has prepared you for! Every struggle, every burden, was not to destroy you but to help you discover what you never knew you had in you. God is faithful. Don't give up. You will reap a harvest if you faint not.

Have you ever been in place where God promised you're going to make it to the other side but the thing you depended on to take you there fell apart but you still made it to your destination anyway. He never promised what you're in and who you're with will be there with you to where you're going. All He said was "you'll be there." The reason why so many people aren't free from their past is because you're in love with what you had. And you think if your life does not contain the shape you started with you don't think it can get you to where you're going.
.
Just because things are broken in your life does not mean you can't survive. Just because your husband left you or your wife left you doesn't mean you can't survive. Just because a relationship or friendship ended doesn't mean you can't survive. Just because mommy or daddy is no longer present in your life doesn't mean you can't survive. Just because your job cut your pay or laid you off doesn't mean you can't survive. Just because you're behind on your bills doesn't mean you can't survive. Quit trying to put what was broken back together and hold on to what's left until you get to where God's trying to take you. You can make it on broken pieces.
.
Every blessing doesn't come to stay. Every relationship wasn't meant to last. Every friend is not going to be a life long friend. You see... God gives you what you need for that season and if it leaves don't cry over what used to be and over what was. Because if you needed it for the future it would've stayed. The bible says, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” In other words, you may not have everything but thank God for what you got left! Thank Him for the pieces. You don't have to have the prefect person to have a marriage. You don't have to have a perfect job to pay the bills. Everybody in the church doesn't have to like you for you to have church. You don't have to be perfect for Christ to accept you. You can make it on broken pieces! Stop focusing on what you lost and focus on what you have left!

#PressPlay: This video blessed my entire day. God is so good! He gives you what you need in the timing that you need it. There's nothing like praying mothers. I'm talking about the ones who speak in tongues and anoint your head with oil at night while you're sleeping. It's because of the prayers of the righteous that you're still here. (via @jameliaboney)

The Lord tested Abraham in the most devastating way; sacrificing his only son. In order words God was saying, "I want you to give me the thing you love most." As Abraham was about to slay his son, the angel of the Lord called out to him and said, “Do not lay a hand on the boy.” Abraham looked up and saw a ram in a thicket. He never hears the ram trying to get out of the thicket until he's finished the command to obey. Do you know your answer could be sitting next to you but you will never know it until God is ready to reveal it. As Abraham was traveling on one side God had the solution (the ram) traveling on the other side.
.
Are you willing to trust God with your Isaac? The thing you want to release the least. The thing that means the most. The thing that you're holding tight and don't want to let go. Abraham saw God mattered more to him than Isaac. Loving God means acting out what God said. It's not about attending church, giving money but your obedience. The reason so many of us don't know the name Jehovah Jireh cause God is still waiting for you to act on what He said even though you may not understand how it's going to work out... How it's going to happen. Isaac had to be placed on the alter. When God said, "Now that I know you fear Me." Then and only then did the solution (the ram) showed up.
.
This means single Christian, that you must give your single-hood over to God. The desire for a mate maybe so strong that has cause you to not follow God completely as a single and He can literally have the person He wants for you sitting next to you year after year and you never see it because the thing He wants from you, you don't want to give it — it could be money, your career. I don't understand how I'm gonna make it, I don't understand how it's gonna work out, I don't know what you're gonna to do but this is what you said and what I'm gonna to do. The greatest sacrifice made was Jesus, the Son of God and through Him we have eternal life if you'll repent, call on His name, and believe God raised Him from the dead. (Words by Pastor Dr. Tony Evans)

Many of us are begging God to change our situation around. We're growing tired of holding on and seeing no change. But, God has a greater purpose for your situation. In this life we will face complications of all kind: affliction, critics, disappointments, frustration, difficult people, spiritual warfare, etc.
__
Don't focus on your situation because what you're going through is only a process to get you to where you're going. God has a plan for you says in Jeremiah 29:11. To prosper you... When we hear the word prosper we think money, cars, boats, clothes, jewelry but that's not the context in which the scripture is saying. Prosper in its hebrew context means 'shalom aleichem' peace be upon you. The people in the book of Jeremiah were going through tough times and they were hungry for a Word to keep them in their right mind and to keep them going. God used Jeremiah who too was going through to encourage God's people to be prosperous in their health, in their heart, and mind and that's only by the promises of God which brings peace.
__
Don't worry about how long you have to wait because you're going to be going through all your life but the feeling will change because of the promises God has on your life. You may be in a bad working environment but God has a plan for you. You may be having problems in your marriage but God has a plan for you. You may be going through financial issues but God has a plan for you. When you think about the promises of God it brings comfort, peace, and confuses the enemy and those who talk about you behind your back. Your going through is a living testimony to show others who are in your situation that God never left you and through it all you're still here!

The devil does not care who he uses or when; therefore, be mindful of ALL people. Understand that you are constantly in warfare (Ephesians 6:10-20). Even when you think the day is over and you've encountered every possible devil that you could possibly encounter, it's at that very moment when he will come in and attempt to get you.
.
Most of the time the devil uses those closest to you to attempt to distract you because it is those people who know you best and knows how to annoy you, frustrate you, and anger you. Keep your cool, keep your peace, and be on guard at ALL TIMES (1 Corinthians 16:13). Most importantly be in consistent prayer. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
.
Let us pray: Heavenly Father, help us to be sensitive to your spirit. We're realizing day-by-day this is a spiritual battle and we need to be connected to the source, You. The more we try to do things on our own the more stressful we become. The less we pray the more we are unaware of fruitless people and tricks of the enemy. Therefore, we humbly come to your throne and ask in Jesus' name to anoint us with your wisdom and discernment. Father, our hearts are heavy. Some of us are confused, hurting, tired and want to give up. But the Holy Spirit inside of us encourages us to keep going. Oh Lord, your thoughts and ways are much higher than ours. Nowadays, people camouflage who they say they are and who they portray themselves to be; however, You know the true motives of people's hearts. Sometimes it feels like you're our only true friend. Above all things Lord we need to stay connected to You. In Jesus' name, amen!

I would be deceiving myself if said I don't get lonely or feel alone at times, like tonight. It's discouraging sometimes seeing your ex or your friends moving on in life engaged and happily married. It's not a jealous or an envious feeling but you do sit and ponder when will your love story unfold. Ironically, I come across comments and posts of single women expressing how they want a 'Godly man'. I can't help but to give God major side eyes like He don't notice me.
.
But, God reminded me of the word, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” You have to learn how to wait on the Lord. It's hard... It's frustrating... You will feel tempted to go your own way... But, the years of pain being with the wrong person or dealing with a regret tormenting your mind is far much worse than waiting in God.
.
Let's be frank. We like to rush God. We like to send Him prayer reminders as if He is oblivious about the desires of our hearts. Your waiting is not in vain. Your waiting has not slipped God's mind. He has not forgotten about you. Don't quit. Don't lose hope. Don't lose faith. Continue waiting on the Lord.
