The WAITING Game - Psalm 25:2-4

Greetings!!!
 
On your mark. Get Ready. Get Set. Now WAIT!  Lord, have mercy that is NOT what I wanted to hear! WAIT?  Is this some kind of joke or something? WAIT?  What does that mean?  And how was I signed up because I need to take my name OFF of that list!?!?!
 
In my family we play a lot of games.  One of the games we LOVE to play is UNO.  We play UNO but we play by our OWN rules.  We can even make up the rules as we go, which confuses other friends or family members that have dared to play with my siblings and I.  There is one version of the game which we play that we call SPEED UNO where you only have like THREE seconds to play your card.  Usually, when we play SPEED UNO, my brother is counting out loud in a very rhythmic and intimidating voice – One. Two. Three.  One. Two. Three. One. Two Three.  The players get flustered and you can’t think because the game is moving so fast! Players miss their turn and put down the wrong cards and have even given up or tried to cheat under the pressure.  One. Two. Three.  One. Two.Three.  It can be so intense and exhilarating and SO MUCH FUN at the same time! 
 
Unfortunately, in this game of life, there really is no way to speed it up or slow it down.  No matter what you do or how you even pray,you CANNOT speed up or slow your life down. There are still 24 hours in a day, seven days in a week and there is NOTHING that you can do about that.  One of the things that makes the most difference in HOW the time feels as it passes is what we are doing in that time. Sometimes, we are forced to play the waiting game and we did not ask to play.  We asked God to move in our lives and in God’s wisdom, instead of a three second turnaround, it was or has been three days, three weeks, three months, or three years, etc. AND our best move in the game is to simply WAITTHE WAITING GAME is not always fun to play but the rules of the game are outlined in the Word of God. THE WAITING GAME only has ONE guarantee – When you wait on GOD, you will NOT be ashamed!
 
Psalm 25:2-4
O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed:let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
 
BlogFam, as you wait for the next move of God in your life, I want you to know that your opponent, the enemy, the evil one  will NOT be playing fair.  You will feel like the rules are changing.  You will feel intimidated.  You will feel alone.  You will feel confused.  These are all tactics of the enemy to get you off of your game but TRUST in GOD!  Ask God to show you the godly way to wait and to teach you the paths where you are to go while you wait or if you should be still. STAY FOCUSED on the game plan in the Word of God and let the Holy Spirit determine your next moves.  I promise you– well, actually, BETTER than that, stand on the promises of the WORD that declares YOU WILL NOT BE ASHAMED when you wait on God!
 
 
God Loves You and I do too!

Your blogs are the representation of truth. We live in a time where people are attempting to run from the truth. I encourage you to continue to share the truth because they can run, but can't hide from what's truly authentic. Many individuals myself included can be somewhat selfish when it comes to waiting simply because it requires us to be patient. On the other hand, we must learn to stop thinking everything will go the way we want it to. If it does not line up with the will of God it will not happen. This is amazing Elder Kennebrew and I pray that God will continue to strengthen, protect, guide, and bless you more and more each day.
