I have really learned and began to understand that it’s not over until God says. We sing songs, quote to one another, but this is a proven fact in my own personal life. God is in control and it is truly all in his timing. We say “It’s all working together for the Good”, and it is. I am now in a season of my life, that when I first began you could have never told me that things would work together as it has. I had to totally rely on God for every outcome in my life.
Yes I pray, and put in the foot work, however, the outcome and glory belongs to God. I am in a place where I believe as a woman in hiding (the cocoon stage), I believe I can see the sunlight and there is a loosening of the chrysalis. Now, that doesn’t mean that my process is starting to feel better, on the contrary, it appears to be getting tighter. The process is one that would love to keep us right there in “the process”. I hear all the time, “girl it’s a process”, “God’s not through with me yet”….yadddda yadaaa….When do we understand that there are processes, and most of them don’t take the rest of your life. There is a few that we will be processed in such as sanctification or healing….some will be automatic, while others aren’t so long. It is up to me to be sensitive to the spirit of God to know when each season is up, so that I can break out and, or break forth.
Let’s not stay in a process that is only suppose to take a while and turn it into a lifestyle. We all miss God sometimes, forfeit, and even delay what we are suppose to walk into. When God makes us aware of these places, pray for direction, get back in line and do what is necessary to keep moving. We never want to remain stagnant. I have been in all three of these places and praise God for his love and mercy for helping me to move. I can personally be very hard headed, not proud of that, but now is not the time to forget the path, the call, or the purposes of God in my life.
I see more distractions on the horizon, right at the break of day, all heal tends to break loose, this is when we push, pray, and push….We don’t give up, and we don’t go back no matter what. Temptation arises, so what! Even if we fall to the temptation, GET UP, and move it, move it, move it! You are not alone, as I know that I am not! God is able, and in this we must allow God to be number one in our lives!
It’s not over until God says, I am a living witness about this wonderful group of words. God never gave up on me, even when I through in the towel with my silly self and wanted to do things my way. He was always right there to pick me up when I called on his wonderful name. Jesus has never failed me yet! So I turn it over. Still guff up, but I will never forget what he has done for me, how he has set me free, how he has brought me out….Nope, Never.
Trust in your process, give your heart to him.
