"I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness." Jeremiah 31:3
Stop waiting for your real life to begin. Sometimes we get so fixated on the thing we’re asking for we miss what God is doing. Don’t focus on a future that might come. Instead, get excited about what God is doing right now. What are you learning? Where have you seen God really show up for you? How is He blessing you? What sort of family is gathered around you now?
What are you waiting for?
A spouse? Grandkids? The perfect job to come along?
God wants you to stop waiting, and start trusting Him.
God is offering you a love that is everlasting, that is unfailing, and that surpasses any dream you are clinging to for yourself. Hope in Him is always well-placed - hope in our desires alone will disappoint. That doesn't mean that the thing you're waiting for is bad or even not going to come to pass, it just means that everything works out better when our hearts rest in God rather than resting on our uncertain hopes.
Lord, help me to receive and be satisfied in Your everlasting love. Amen.
