From My Playlist – As Long As It Takes

by | Jun 12, 2017 | , , | From My Playlist | 4 comments

Hurry up . . . and wait.

Seems like that’s all we hear in today’s society. We want everything now. The Internet is at our fingertips 24-7, so why do we need to wait?


I have to be honest, lately, I feel like I’ve been waiting a long time for some things in my life. I question God. Why isn’t it happening now? What are You waiting for? I’m ready.

But, am I?

Perhaps there’s a reason God isn’t answering . . . YET. He has something bigger and better in store for me.

Isn’t that just like us though? We think we know what’s best for our lives, so we want it to happen right away. We don’t want to wait.

But we must ask God for direction and patience. He knows best. What can we do while we stop and pause?

Dig deep and see where we need to grow. That’s what I’m going to do.

As long as it takes.

Is there something you’re waiting for in your life? How do you abide the time? Any secrets? Please share. I’d love to hear from you.

Jeremiah 29:11 (VOICE)

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that.

As Long As It Takes (by Meredith Andrews)

He’s our sustainer. We just have to wait upon Him. Listen to the words of this powerful song and let God move in your life when it’s His time.

    I needed this message today. My husband and I are trying to move from VA to SC, to be near son, daughter-in-love and our first grand baby due in August. We need patience as we know God has a plan for us. 🙂
