Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this:'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these.
Last night as I was flipping through the television channels I came across the movie Fireproof; one of my favorite movies of all time. While watching the movie I forgot about one of the songs that plays within the movie, "While I'm Waiting." How I forgot I do not know. I remember the first time I heard this song I was blown away.
How many times have I prayed to God to answer a pray and expected the answer immediately? I know all to well that it has been many of times. After hearing this song it made me realize "what am I doing while I am waiting for His answer?" Only He can answer my prayers and sometimes it may not be the answer I want but what am I doing while I am waiting for my answer?
Lately, I feel so suffocated and stressed by all that is going on within my life. I feel that I do not have enough time in my day to get everything done. There are times where I feel like I cannot even breath if it is not on my schedule. After simplifying my schedule I still wonder what I need to do to feel peace and not so much anxiety. I realized tonight that I am not fully trusting in Him. I am trying to do it all on my own. One would think after reading the entire Bible I would know that He was with me all along. But I am of the flesh. I am not perfect and I pray to never be perfect. I have flaws and the Lord knows I have many of them but all I can do is pray that He will show me the flaws and help me work through them. I may not see His works now but overtime I will.
There are times where I need the answer now, and in my time. I fail to remember that He has a plan for me, and only He knows that plan. How will I serve Him while I am waiting?
