Summary: Waiting on God’s Timing
This is a word or a verb that is very hard for most people. It requires a lot from someone to do this action.
We tend to want things fast, our dreams or our goals reached quickly, to get married and it hurts or terrifies us when we can’t see or do what we want rigtht away. We tend to take actions into our own hands and make a big mess.
my baby boy is 2 years old and he is in that stage where he cannot wait, he asks for something whether it be a food or a toy and when he doesn’t get it right away he throws a tantrum and starts to cry.
We are like that sometimes you would think as we get older we wouldn’t fuss or cry when we we dont get what we want. But unfortunately we do.
short example :like (God why why everyone I know has a boyfriend /girlfrind why can’t I get one
or why does he/ she get to sing or preach at the altar I am a christian too
Why when I pray I don’t get answered right away?
How long is this Financial rut gonna last?
We tend to wine to God instead of waiting.
I speak this way because in my late 20’s I wined and was impatient with the Lord about my acting career . I remember selling pasteles with my family to pay for the pictures or headshots. I was in my room crying out to God because I wanted to go I believe it was to a competion in California.
but I could not afford it. The Lord spoke to me through his word and said to me in proverbs 20: 21 An inheritance quickly gained at the beginning will not be blessed at the end.
or another version
An inheritance obtained too early in life is not a blessing in the end.
When I read that it was a wakeup call, so i just stopped crying and waited as time went on.
I ended up doing 2 regional commercials and played an extra for Richie Rich the movie and did some promotional work and got paid good money.
But then the auditions and promotions stopped so I decided my singing was more my strong suit and passion. I sent out countless bios and demos to record companies but no answer.
My friend who was a singer for the world said he was going to talk to his label ( a Famous Label) for me because at the time they were looking for a female singer who can sing merengue.
I was so excited and said that I would let him know. so I asked a friend of mine and we made a cons and pros list because I was a Christian. i just wanted to make a name for myself, make money and then the doors would open for me in the Christian market. Oh I was convinced I was gonna do it!
I went to church one day and all I was thinking during the preaching was my secular singing career to be until I decided to skim through my bible and the Lord spoke to me again. He gave me James 1:1-11
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: 10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
Another word from the Lord during my waiting period. I asked my pastor right away before service ended and gave him my testimony and asked if I could share it with the congregation
I did, was blessed and I decided to wait on God’s timing and for Him to open the doors and that I was not going through secular doors in order to Sing for Him.
