Waiting in the “not yet”…

hands{source unknown}

“Each God-written love story is unique, but it must follow one very specific guideline: prove that God is worthy of trust! You can trust Him to lead the right man to pursue you, at the right time, and in the most God-honoring fashion. You must remain patient, waiting upon God to provide, and believe me, waiting upon God to provide and believing He will is its own most glorious reward of deepest joy.” Ben Zornes

I don’t have many words today so I thought I would share with you a quote that has been on my heart lately. I don’t know about you, but the truth of these words fires me up and reignites my soul to wait on God. One of my deepest desires is for a God-written love story and sometimes this time of waiting becomes hard (really hard). I start to lose patience and wonder what the purpose of waiting is. It is then that I’m reminded that God’s way is always the best and always worth the wait. So today I’m rejoicing in this time of the “not yet” because I know that my Father is trustworthy and He walks with me in the waiting (and all the days afterward).

Sam - you have no idea how much I needed this today. I feel incredibly blessed to be in the middle of my own God-written love story right now, and yet, I am still impatient for the next stage to begin (the marrying bit, ya know!). This was very timely to remind me of why I need to be content to trust His timing. Thank you!

Thanks so much for sharing this! I am in the "not yet" phase too and it is hard waiting. But His timing is the best timing since He knows us the best. Also, I love how God can use us even more when we're single. We have all these opportunities and more free time to do them!

Loving this quote today!

I'm with you!! And what a beautiful quote...Love is waiting by Brooke Fraser has been my anthem. So true it's hard but we are made faithful and faith in His timing will bring us to the best that He has set for us. :)
You have such a beautiful soul in the Lord.
Blessing,
Delvalina

Did you change things up around here? It looks different, very cute!

Keep waiting...Believing God will do His work and knowing you can neither get in His way nor push Him along! :)

Love this quote Samantha! I was just talking about this today with a friend over coffee. It definitely takes us submitting fully to Him so that He can show us the beauty He has for us. Such a great reminder!

So needed this.
Read Lamentations 3.
Smack in the middle of that chapter is what I live on these days.

Thanks sweetie!
