“As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless.” Psalm 18:30
One day soon. One day it will come.
Do you ever get so frustrated sometimes that you can’t even put it into words? That was me this weekend. This weekend I helped lead worship for a women’s conference at my church. Everything that I wanted to work out so smoothly just wasn’t. Visions and dreams that I’ve pushed forward in faith weren’t working out. Things that I thought I had overcome suddenly came to the surface. Fear crept up in my head as I geared up to worship. And all these things left me frustrated.
As I worshiped, and felt all the frustrations of life come to the surface. Suddenly, I couldn’t have missed it if I tried, I heard the Holy Spirit whisper, “One day soon.” I looked at the women in the room and images flashed before my eyes of all the promises of God and His faithfulness to fulfill them. It took all that was in me not to break out in tears mid worship set. One day soon, I will realize the desires and dreams he has planted in me. One day soon I will conquer fear and step out in worship. One day soon. One day it will come.
So why do I write about this? Because I am in the middle of it all and I am choosing to rely and believe in the faithfulness of God. I’m not on the other side with the clarity to see God working. I’m not in the beginning with a naive passion. I am in the thick. I want you to know that I am in the middle of blazing a trail and its hard. Long suffering has become my friend. And I am choosing everyday to believe that God is good to me. Now I don’t know if you’re in the thick of it all, if not you will be. Know today that it is possible, God sees you and knows you. Everyday I have to convince myself of this truth. Soon, one day soon, you will see the horizon. You’ll stand on the edge of the cliff and see the sovereignty of God and one day you will look back at this day and praise Him. And that’s what I’m hoping for.
“One day soon.”
