Answered Prayers


I’ve got to be honest with you guys. The past few days my heart has been running a million miles an hour- and not always in a good way. Remember the other day how I said one of my goals for 2014 is to plan less so I can live in the present more? Well it has been a lot tougher than I thought. If you follow me on twitter, than you may have seen my tweet on December 26th stating that we checked off a HUGE item on our ‘to do’ list. And last week we officially got our finalized paperwork back. Little did I know, this next step would cause me to lose all patience. I knew this next step would take at least a month before we could check it off and move on. Well, it has been 5 days and I am already going crazy! I’m ready for some answers.  I keep finding myself repeating Ecclesiastes 3:11 and Philippians 4:6 over and over again- both in my mind and out loud {yes, some strangers might think I am going coo-coo}. Looking back His timing has always been perfect. So why have I been so anxious this time?


Well yesterday the Lord answered my prayers asking for peace and joy in this journey. Do I still want to know my answer now? Absolutely. But I am learning to find joy in the waiting. This anxiousness helps keep me focused on Him.

Luke 1.45

 What helps bring you peace & patience in times of waiting?

    Oh that is a hard one! I think what you are doing is the best. Keep coming back to the Lord saying, “OK I know you have a plan.” It is hard- yes. But like my dad use to say “Worrying (anticipating) is like a rocking chair. It allows you to do something, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” Just try to focus your energy on other things you can control. Hang in there!
