On Life: Waiting

Waiting is so hard.I've been waiting for something for so long. I have prayed and fasted, yet it seems God doesn't hear me. I have waited patiently, and sometimes impatiently. Sometimes I am encouraged, and sometimes I am discouraged. Sometimes it feels like the answer is near. Sometimes it feel like the answer is far away. Sometimes I feel that God wants me to have this thing, sometimes I'm not so sure. Sometimes it's easy to smile and keep hope alive. But sometimes it's hard to stay hopeful. Sometimes I can cheer myself up, and sometimes I feel like crying.

I had been feeling discouraged. But then I remembered: God had been good to me thus far. He has been faithful to me. He has never failed me when I needed Him most. And I have no other person to turn to. I shouldn't let my problem take me away from God. I should draw nearer to God in times of trouble. Only Him can meet my deepest needs. Only Him can hear my most earnest prayer. Only Him can give me complete peace of mind.

Yes it is very hard waiting. But God can use me in that time. And develop the gift of patience in me while I wait.

    You're right. God is doing an eternal work in you while you wait. Nothing of promise comes instant. Remember the children of promise - Isaac, John the baptist. Keep believing.

    James 1: 4 But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.

    I totally understand where you are coming from and I love how you ended this!

    I pray God doesn't keep you waiting for much longer.

    Thanks for your sponsorship FG!

    Have a beautiful week ahead!

  3. God is always faithful. The waiting process is where our faith is tested. But We know that HE is faithful.

  4. just believe in God, he will surely do it at the right time .

  5. Wat more can i say? Your lovely friends have taken the words right outta my mouth.

    Those that wait upon da lord shall renew their strength.

    May the good Lord meet you at the point of your need!


  6. I like the sincerity of this post. It shows the vicissitudes of life. You are keeping it real. Waiting can be very hard.

    Many times, there is faith and doubt in the same heart, hope and fear ,laughter and tears, desire to continue waiting and desire to give up.

    I trust that God will grant you strength during the seasons of this phase of your life. He understands your pain.

    Let me share something I read : "God synchronizes (timing) His answers to accomplish His purpose"-T.D Jakes.

    The best is yet to come, FG (I bet it is not an easy time sha)


  8. Favoured- God surely will answer your prayers threefold. Everything has its time, and yours will surely come. You will see. For every patient act and belief you will be rewarded gretly. We will all pray for you.

  9. @ ALL: Thank you so much for your comments. You've been so encouraging. God bless you!

  10. Hmmm I have been waiting for something from God for a while now. I can relate to all the mixed feelings. But I have come to a place where I strongly am believing that I wasn't prepared or wise before to receive my Blesing. As I wait I am getting smarter by the days concerning what I am asking God for. In everything you shud give God the glory for when it all falls into place you will understand it. Be patient and wait on the Lord He is perfect.

  11. Hey hun, I know waiting is hard but whatever it is you're asking him for ... it's going to be so much more amazing if he grants it in his time rather than yours.

    Have a great Easter!

  12. What r we waiting for, Favored Gal? I dunnno if it's what I'm thinking but whatever it is, God will give it to you when He's ready

  13. Waiting is one of the hardest things to do, and the worst thing is that there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. believe me i know cos i have been waiting 2years and more now BUT i knnow that "DELAY DOESNT MEAN DENIED" so gal lets use thsi period as a preparatory time and just stay focused, have faith that you will get that which u have waited for and it will wipe away all ur tears.

    "Noah waited for 120 years for the fullfilment of God's word
    For Noah there was nothing like rain in his day

    Abraham waited 25 years for an heir
    He was old....way too old to have a child

    David : Joseph : Paul
    All great men of God,but still had to wait for the fulfillment of His word

    I hear someone say hmm

    But it's true
    We all have to wait to manifest

    But we all have to

    Some for one day,one week,one month one year.....

    But wait we will
    And while waiting........BELIEVE

    That He who has promised is well able to do exceeding
    abundantly far above all we could ever ask or think of

  14. I am joining u in ur act of faith towards what u r asking God for and am sure he sure hez just waiting for the right time for u to have it cos I believe God never fails ...

    Happy easter

  15. The results are in. Come and see who made it to the next level!

  16. Favoured girl just remain in God's waiting room,you'll step into His precious promises just in time.And the wait will surely not be in vain.

  17. God is an on time God. Waiting is hard but hold fast to His promises and He will bring it to past in His own time
