Invested in the Messes

Updated: Feb 23, 2019


Ephesians 2:10

“Take courage my heart; stay steadfast my soul, He’s in the waiting”💛 How difficult this is at times for me. How I wish I could run full-speed ahead RIGHT NOW. 🏃🏼‍♀ How I long for change, for newness, for growth. How I COMPARE!!


This is so damaging, because my journey is MY journey, and comparison steals the joy right out of it. I can compare so much sometimes that I begin to believe the lie that God has forgotten about me.

I’ll never have a new job, I’ll never be in a relationship, I’ll never be out of this seemingly never-ending season of WAITING. Isn’t that the hardest part? Being patient 😩 I am terrible at it; but I am learning, that the waiting is the richest part. It is not the easiest part, it is not always the fun part, it is not always the strong part, the “exciting” part; BUT IT IS THE PART WHERE GOD LIVES FIERCELY!!

God lives in every season of our lives, yes, and thank goodness, but in desert seasons, in this season, I have had to seek Him and press into Him like NEVER before. I get so caught up in what I don’t have, my selfish want for things, that I lose focus of the MIRACLE, that is happening RIGHT NOW. Right in this moment, in this season, in this desert. God is nearer than I dare imagine, and He is at work in my life!! Even when I cannot see it, He is working behind the scenes. He is preparing me for things in this season, that I don’t even know I’m going to need yet. But if I am so focused on what I don’t have, and where I’m not, instead of what He’s FREELY GIVEN to me in this season, to be FULLY INVESTED, and obedient to what He’s calling me to do right here and now; then I could miss it completely. #investinthemess

Lord, I pray that you would help me to fix my eyes on You during this time. That You would fill me up with You’re truth, Your full armor Jesus, that I could fight against the lies that try to make me believe You have forgotten me here. Lord, for even when I cannot trace Your fingerprints, I can always trust Your heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen <3 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” - Ephesians 2:10
