Hello dear friends! It’s been a while. I’ve missed writing and connecting with you, but I also needed a break to refuel. There’s lots happening for me and I have found that stepping away can often be the best way to handle stress, anxiety, or a creative dry-spell.
Do you ever get the sense that you are waiting on so many different things to happen in your life? Waiting on the right job, the right house, the right mate to show up for you. Even waiting on the right time to sell or buy a home, execute a new business or going back to school can make you feel like you are on a hamster wheel of oblivion. Waiting. Hoping. Praying. Repeat. This is a cycle familiar to all of us.
I want to talk today a little bit about waiting. Now, there’s lots you can do when you are in this season. You can worry, stress, become angry, or even give up. But the best thing for your peace of mind, body, and soul is to have patience. Easier said than done, having patience in what may seem like an endless cycle of disappointments, close-calls, and almost is not for the faint of heart. It requires focus, fearlessness, and faith.
Your focus is important because it demands that you keep your eye on the prize. Focus keeps you from becoming distracted by change. It says, you must stay the course. Fearlessness (courage) is so vital and is an everyday weapon against self-doubt. This keeps you from falling off the path with the overwhelming ‘what ifs’ and ‘it’s never going to happen’ or the worst – giving up all together due to your fear of failure.
And last, and really the foundation of it all – faith. Faith requires you believe it’s already done. It means you can’t see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, or touch it, but you know it’s going to happen. It’s the internal compass that gently guides, encourages, stabilizes, and resets you in your most confusing and frustrating hour. It says, keep going, you’re almost there.
Be focused, fearless, and have faith. Patience is only developed during seasons of waiting. You’re in store for great things.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
With Love & Light,
