In The Meantime…

Updated: Jan 31, 2021

Your blessing can be wrapped up in adversity. Just because you are going through doesn’t mean that God is not blessing you. Sometimes you can go through so much adversity that you continue to believe in God but quit believing the vision. You’ve been through so much it feels like you have been disqualified when in essence you are being qualified with empathy, passion, compassion, kindness, gentleness,  patience, perseverance and faith. Take another look at what you have been through with Christ as your guide and counsel. Look back with His fresh holy eyes and let Him walk you through the pain to discover what you have gained.

Let the bumps of life do what they are supposed to do……shake things up. You may even fall into a pit or two. But there is no pit deep enough that God can’t reach. Just do your part and reach up and He will take hold and pull you up. There are some tragedies in life that are so horrific that it seems pointless and disrespectful to even try to find a silver lining. But we can eventually get the strength to look up and find God. You are not alone. You are never alone. Whenever suffering makes no sense I always refer back to the cross. He who knew no sin became sin to save us. He knows your pain, he feels your pain and has all power to heal your pain. He gets you even when no one else does….

Sometimes God will slow everything down to protect you not to punish you. In the meantime while waiting for your change to come……

1) Always listen to your gut and those closest to your heart. 2) Don’t get sidetracked by flattery, money, power, notoriety or pleasure. They don’t make you but they can break you. 3) Be wary of manipulation…all that glitters is not gold and all that’s dull is not                            worthless…..keep your eyes open and stay alert. 4) Freewill can be tricky…watch your step…traps can be set but they won’t work until or unless we step in them. 5) Character is all important….watch your ego and pride…it can kill you and all you hold dear. 6) Your instincts….listen to them…never discount or overrule them with emotion. 7) You can get caught in a trap for doing the right thing as well as the wrong thing…it’s all in how you see it…thru the eyes of ego (evil) or the eyes of God…watch your motives.

Thank God He will not leave us unprepared. All we have to do is, follow His instruction and listen to His advice.

Proverbs 3:6 (AMP) 6 In all your ways know, recognize ”and” acknowledge Him, and He will direct “and” make straight “and” plain your paths.

It’s okay if things have slowed down. Don’t fret. The plan hasn’t changed. Just slow down and don’t insist on being in a hurry. That is a distraction.  Heed the wisdom and guidance to avoid the fall. Don’t let adversity warp you. You were created for such a time as this. Get ready. It’s time to unwrap your gift.

Love, Ms. Wanda, GAC
