The Proper Time

We have all felt this way. A large percentage of our lives is spent waiting for something. A raise, a blessing, a soul mate, a new job, a promotion, a vacation, and the birth of a baby are but a few of the things we wait for.

After awhile, we begin to doubt whether what we are waiting for will ever come to us. It begins to seem impossible as time passes. We start telling ourselves that maybe we are not worthy of what we are waiting for. Impatience breeds negative self-talk and hurtful doubt.

Galatians 6:9 says to, "Not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest..."

It is very important to understand the value of waiting. The word wait is used over 140 times in the Bible. Waiting is a critical skill to learn if we want to have happier and more stress-free lives.

"At the proper time..." seems to tell us at least two things:

1) There IS a proper time for what is coming to you. God has established that already. Now may not be the proper time for a myriad of reasons that we can only speculate. God's universal script includes your blessing finding its way to you...at the proper time!

2) Linear time means nothing in God's Kingdom. The proper time may not come for days, weeks, years, and even decades. We mustn't lose hope! The proper time will manifest!

God always gives us what we need for the day. Jesus spoke of "daily" bread. Not monthly or yearly bread...daily! At the end of every day, we have what we need both physically and spiritually. 

Our challenge today is to learn how to practice gratitude more regularly. I suggest that every morning when you wake up, give thanks for at least five to ten things in your life. Do the same when you lie down for the night. Gratitude causes our energy vibrations to increase which opens the door for new blessings and possibilities. 

Your proper time is coming! Until then, celebrate gratitude for what is instead beating yourself down over what isn't!

Bright blessings,
Todd
