God has been so good to me as I have been trying to figure out what He is birthing in me.
I have had all the cravings, restless nights and emotional mood swings hit in the past few weeks, as if I really was pregnant (nope, not!) as my spirit is trying to being the rest of me into this new alignment with His plans for me.
It is not a comfortable place to be, feeling like I am ready to give birth but my due date isn’t quite here yet.
Maybe you too can relate.
The tension between the now and the not yet can be agonizing at times.
The only way you can find peace in the wait is to agree with His timing, and wait.
Because getting frustrated over what might be is only putting fuel in the enemy’s hands instead of waiting for His Spirit to ignite what is to come.
I know He has good plans for me, His love for me is never failing and He adores me.
It can be hard as we wait to find out how and where we fit into the puzzle of what He is creating His Bride to be.
But we don’t wait alone.
I draw comfort from His Presence as I wait.
It doesn’t make the wait any shorter, but it makes it better as He and I wait together.
Because He gave all He had to get His Bride, I can trust He will be with me, and as I seek His design for my life, that where I best fit will be revealed.
What He wants for us to do will come to pass as we press in to Him, wait for His lead and step into the place He has waiting for us.
As we wait, He is stirring up the embers of His gifts which have been lying dormant within, just waiting to be born & breathe new life.
It will be worth the wait when we let Him lead us into place.

Oh the wait is long. I pray that God shows me His answer clearly. So hard to see.
I remind myself to keep.my eyes on His face instead of the road. Much better view point for passing the wait time! Lord, draw close to Marianne as she waits for You.
Thank you. You have given me comfort

I am thankful that God is stirring our hearts. It is encouraging to see that He calls us from deep to deep. There is never an end to His depth and we will never be quenched. Thank you for sharing, your words confirmed exactly what I have felt recently.
