Wait, my daughter

I have been home a week now but taking time off from work, to come to terms with the changes in my life.

I have written about my hope of completing my education someday. Things were going in the right direction- my university accreditation has been complete and it remains for me to put in my application. And there is a good chance that I might get accepted to a reputed university.

But I am having second thoughts now. I doubt if I can pull it through. I seem to have lost the confidence and will power to do it. I have tried to read the Bible over the last week to get comfort and have prayed to be led to a powerful verse that can guide me. I don’t often seem to get direct comfort from reading the Bible these days. My life is all topsy turvy.

I am reading my daily lesson now and I see a verse which seems to be speaking right to me.

Ruth 3:18

Wait, my daughter, until you find out what happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today.

It gives me hope that I need to trust and hold on and keep going. My life will clear out again like Ruth’s did and be once more filled with blessings.

Praise God !

  1. Waiting is one of the hardest things to do. We are told to wait on the Lord, and that’s what you are doing. I’m praying for God’s guidance for you, that He will let you know without a doubt what He wants you to do.

  2. I do the same thing-work towards a goal, dream about it and desire it-then when things start happening, I get fearful and unsure! I think I get comfortable just waiting and see results as a change. Gosh-I was just praying about this this today! May we both walk in confidence-Look at our Father-how can we be scared! go well and let us know.

  3. For we live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV
    I think you are walking by faith at this point Susie. Those times when we can’t see what is ahead or seem to hear the Father’s direction is when our faith comes in to play. I can hear that you are relying on that and that is a wonderful thing.
    I will be praying that faith carries you through the waiting time.

    1. Thanks Faye. Friends like you have been put on earth to guide people like me when I have only faith to hold on to. I am looking to see the path if there is any. Sometimes I doubt if the idea of further studies is only my selfish interest in becoming “somebody” after the degree rather than becoming a “nobody” for Christ( no worldly gain). It is so difficult to give up materialistic pleasures. I can so understand the man about whom Jesus said, it is easier to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to go to heaven.

      1. We just had the most awesome sermon on this very topic yesterday in church. Our pastor is teaching out of Ecclesiastes on the chasing after the wind chapters. He said to make sure we check our motives for what we do in life. Was a “thinker” kind of lesson.
