It feels good to wait no matter what you’re expecting. A lady for her groom, a hungry man for his dinner, an athlete for his swallow of electrolytic drink. Regardless the expectation it’s just darn right good to wait. Time is given to produce the taste, the feeling, and other sensual activity before the final arrival.
Do you think it’s safe to say that if you needed something badly like as in an Emergency, that you would refuse to wait? Maybe you would refuse patience in order to get immediate gratification. Well, if you need it so badly how long can you wait for it? How long have you been waiting already? If you have waited for a while them wouldn’t you be able to continue in that position for a little longer?
It is possible to wait on something for as long as you think you don’t need it. (Think about that) it is possible to wait for something as long as you think you do not need it. The minute you think you are in need of it, then you will cut patience short and desire the thing more.
Well, maybe it’s best to wait because then you allow for a different outcome. You allow situational changes for the better, you may find out that the soup you rushes to get would have been better had it cooked a while longer.
Waiting on God is the same way, if you wait on Him it’s so much better. If you wait on Him to prepare the table, everything will be in order. The tablecloth ironed, utensils in proper place, glass spotless, food hot, and chair pulled out. He caters to the waiting position, He desires to serve you in best dining of life so it’s good to just wait. Don’t fix your own food and sit at any table, let the table that was prepared for you be your eating place. Not only will it feel good to wait but it taste good also!
Taste and see that The Lord is GOOD!
Why are you so concerned about others and the choices they make? Are you selfish in the fact that you want everyone life to be like ours? Should you give advice according to what you think is best and not allow the person to decide for themselves and learn from their own mistakes? What if you’re not asked for your advice, what if you’re just thinking about yourself and how it would please you to have someone else follow your example? Those what ifs are exactly why you’re answering questions that you weren’t asked and giving advice without summoned counsel. Who asked you anyway? Who told you to advise? Did you all of a sudden become the Holy Spirit and became endowed with the gift of knowing everything about everybody and the constant stream of all truth? Your answer is NO, but yes of course theres truth in it.
Spiritual gifts provide wisdom knowledge and insight into the lives of others that sometimes causes what seems like prodding without consent. That’s not it at all, God allows some to advise and give counsel to others without their knowledge or consent. He uses people to help people. So who asked you, God did!
What are you made of? What are we made of? Flesh and bone is the technical answer and a spirit is the spiritual answer. All that is true, however, what about the parts your flesh and spirit have added to themselves? The flesh enjoys grabbing ahold of those things that will give it temporary gratitude like, yelling at the man who pulled in front of you, or smacking your lips at the lady who has a basket full of groceries, even putting up the middle finger to ur boss behind his back. These all make the flesh feel satisfied or pleasures when in reality they attach as a leach to draw out the good and manifest bad. If they continue to leach you will dry up. That’s why grudges cause sickness and hate can cause death.
So what will you allow to leach on to what you’re made of. Will you allow a child’s lie to attach anger to you and hold for days until your head hurts? What will you allow to entangle itself with your spirit? Will you allow hate to mingle with love and act as if they can share spaces when in reality one will have to sit in the corner and watch. Hate can become a spiritual leach, a fly on your wall with access to the entire room free to roam and too fast for you to catch. So while you’re trying to enjoy your day, hate flies around and frustrates you enough until you began to swing out of control. Once you start that you lose reality that the fly is the smallest thing in the room and your love can suffocate it.
You are made of such greatness! You are made of a resources that can not be drawn from but can be given. You are made from a source that does not run out therefore can never run out of possibility. It is possible to rid yourself of anger, sin, disease, hate, etc. flesh and bone grows old and will decay but the greater you, your spirit will live on and it always has the upper hand. Swat the fly, smash the roach, close the hand that points the finger, allow your spirit to control the hand that will want to blow the horn.
You get my drift? Realize what you are made of and not what is trying to disguise itself as what you’re made of!
Even though things get chaotic and like 5:00 traffic in your mind, it doesn’t give the go ahead for frustration. How can you keep your joy when you allow the thoughts of various needless things to cloud your mind? Frustration is caused by broken stop lights in your mind. The red lights are green and the green lights are red. Get a technician out to fix those broken traffic lights before you stress out.
Even though the thought of reading with your two kids or dusting that attic keep wanting to go the same route every 5 minutes, does not mean you have to allow it. Once you get the light fixed, when the thought comes again the yellow light will appear. You will have time to process the thought and either give a green light or keep at red. You organize the thought that are like traffic, you are in control of direction and speed. Now, by knowing that; why be frustrated? Just fix the lights and move on. Look in the master phone book (Bible) Call JESUS He’s great at helping to fix things like this. He offers training…
There’s nothing wrong with telling your child their wrong for something or identifying a wrong choice. However, it is every bit of wrong to abuse and degrade your child because of their wrong. How is that showing love.
I had to write something after reading an article about a mom sexually and physically abusing her daughter because she’s a lesbian.
She not crazy or a lunatics, she’s an uninformed parent who satan has used to blast her off into isolation. Now she will be separated from her daughter and unable to get an ear. Not physically separated but mentally and physically the devil used her to build an iron wall between her and her daughter.
I pray parents stop accepting tickets to get on the “Rocket Deception” and get to know Christ to stay grounded!
I have a son and I am training him to be independent. He’s eventually going to be a man with a family, therefore, I must teach him independence so that he can be depended on.
I say all of that to say “Please train up your son to be an independent man!” His wife will not want an additional child that is grown! Will your son know how to be a husband and a father or will he be a child. Spoiling a son and giving him everything he wants will only hinder his family life.
Teach your son independence for the sake of his future family.
