Recently I have been going through a rough season in my life. I have been searching for answered prayers, but in this season it has been filled with uncertainty. I have been feeling that God has forgotten about me. I have had multiple things that I had planned for my future be thrown out the door. These were areas of my life that I was almost certain would come through like I planned, because I had prayed greatly for them and these could be good things in my life.
It’s a horrible place to be in, but I was having a hard time believing that God would come through again in my life. I would have people speak to me about how God does have a plan for my life and how He is good, but I had a hard time listening to these people. I have been wanting things my way and on my timing, but my way is definitely not what God has planned for my life. I kept questioning God, and I was even angry at God for changing my plans for the future.
It’s ironic that my word for the year is patience. God has been truly teaching me this in my current season. This is definitely an area that God is trying to improve in me. Honestly, I feel like this a lesson that has been forced upon me recently. I haven’t really had a choice except to be patient, and I’m now trying to praise God for this hard season. I need to trust that God will show up and do abundantly more than I can even imagine.
I was beginning to want God to completely change my life and direction for my future, but I realized that I was really looking to escape my problems instead of facing my problems. I realized that God has me where I am now for a reason. I wanted to go to some place new to do ministry, but I am realizing that ministry can take place where I am presently.
I don’t want to stay in the season that I have been in. I want to be growing closer to God, and I am now trying to change my perspective about this season. I have wanted God to change my circumstances, but I haven’t really allowed God to change myself first. I am now believing and trusting again that God will answer my prayers.
