I cannot emphasis enough how much of an impatient person I am. I hate waiting in line or waiting for my order to arrive, especially when I am starving. The idea that you have to wait for something or someone is so dreadful to me. I also think that that is the reason why God is making me wait. What is He making me wait out for? Well, He is making me wait for the one whom I can refer to as ‘God’s best’.
Lately, I lost count on how many friends of mine have been engaged and/or getting married. Don’t get me wrong, I am terribly happy for them. But the thought of me still being single makes me a little bit more impatient. I guess waiting for God’s best is not my strongest suit, but I am trying really hard to flourish in my season of waiting.
Now what do I mean when by God’s best? You are right when to think that God’s best is a man. A man after God’s own heart, to be more precise. He is somebody God will send in the perfect time, when He sees that you are ready to meet him. God’s best is someone who will never make you cry over stupid arguments, someone who loves God more than he loves you, someone who you can call your best friend, and so much more. He will make you realise why all the heartbreaks in the past have been necessary. He is the one that you have been waiting for all these time. Well, he simply is ‘the one‘, and he is the reason why things with people in the past did not work out. It probably is for the better, because God’s best is simply the best.
I still am trying to be patient and to do my best in the current season that I am in, so that when I meet God’s best, I will be able to say that I made the most out of my season of waiting. So then I know that he will be proud, and I will be content, full and happy.
You see, God does not give us what we want when He sees that we are not yet ready. He knows that things will turn into chaos when we rush into things. That’s why when we meet God’s best, we can fully rely on the fact that we are, indeed, ready and that God has made it possible.
So whenever you are feeling impatient, frustrated and maybe, even jealous, just know that there is someone out there for you. God is saving up His best for you, His dear one. Take heart, be brave, and be fruitful in your season of waiting.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”
Psalm 23:1-3 NIV
