I write this as I sit in the car , while my husband is in his dentist appointment.
As I was getting ready to leave my house, I looked out the window. It was cloudy , I can see the trees moving from the wind. I said to myself I can wear my jean shorts , with a sweatshirt. The weather seemed to be in between. It appeared to be a cool day.
I come outside, think to myself such a nice , not hot day. Well that ended quickly. I sat in the car waiting, growing warmer by the minute. The sun came out and beamed on me in the car. I had to face it, it was hot!
Why did I in August, put on a heavy sweatshirt. I thought putting it on with shorts would make it in season. I know that it’s summer, and that outfit could have worked for the fall. I knew it wasn’t the correct season , still I put it on.
Good thing I had a summer shirt in the trunk of my car. I changed right in the car , in the parking lot. It’s important to be aware of of the seasons of our lives. That’s not the lesson SIS!
The lesson was when God makes a sudden change, can I adjust to it. It was cloudy when I left the house, but there was a shift in the weather. Do I trust the shift that God is making in my life, Can I adjust to his will and deny what I want.
I had to change my shirt to be comfortable, would I have been able to sit uncomfortably , while I waited on my husband. Can I be uncomfortable when adjusting to what God says, can I wait in discomfort for him to perform his word?
I realized that adjusting to what God has for me, keeps me from striving in the things of God! I can adjust , because he is worth the wait. Adjust yourself, this shift in God IS WORTH THE WAIT.
