almost

i wrote this blog on myspace about 8 months ago—but i thought that i should re-post it here.

——————————————————————————————–

it seems like we are almost “there”…. the funny thing is that we’re not sure what the “there” is…. is it an achievement?… is it a time and place?…is it financial stuff?… it’s the wondering and waiting that makes God seem so distant—yet He grows larger in our minds during these times…. i guess that you do what you do and do it well—until…. but until what?… until you feel this way again?….is it a vicious cycle that we are in?… it seems that i was raised to be a seeker—always seeking for more….so what is next?…. i am always ready to chase after the answer to that question….. it’s the waiting that seems to wear you down…..

    Tru dat. My feelings are best expressed in a song written by Mr. Tom Petty which appears on the 1981 Album, “Hard Promises” –

    WAITING
    The waiting is the hardest part
    Every day you see one more card
    You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
    The waiting is the hardest part

    Sometimes it’s necessary for me anyway to just be still and know that He is. And that is sufficient.

    Precisely what I a feeling!!! Waiting and waiting and waiting…for what? For the next thing, but what is that? And inthis waiting I’m like what do I do? How do I wait? What position do I take…all to find that I live like I have been living, except with an expectancy that something is coming. I just don’t know exactly what that looks like and I really want to know so that I can prepare for it. But then what do I think He’s doing in me, you know? I guess He’s growing me and preparing me for where He’s taking me and all that’s next. It’s funny to think that I think I need to know. When I was little, I was always the one that needed to know where we were going, why, when, what for and for how long. Boy is that changing!

    And, sometimes, I think, “oh, this must be it” and I run for it, only to find I just got ahead of Him and end up down on my face, having tripped over my own feet. Hahaa!

    ANd sometimes, the waiting feels so long, I seriously start to wonder if He is waiting on me to do something, you know? Am I supposed to pray through to something..:), or what? And, lately, I find that I just need to continue waiting and allow my trust in Him and in His faithfulness grow. Maybe that is what the waiting is really all about because He did make time for us. We are the ones that need time…time to grow, time to believe… This makes me want to run harder in the waiting, because I do find that in the waiting there is also running…but after Him.

    Well, I am writing too much and making my own note now…on your blog! lol! Sorry! I’m just so in this place right now…can you tell?

    Thanks for reposting your note here.
