Already this morning I am being told to wait. One devotional said Psalm 31:5 – “My times are in your hands.” The next devotional said Isaiah 30:18 – “And therefore, will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you, and therefore will He be exalted, that He may have mercy upon you, for the Lord is a God of judgement: blessed are all who wait for Him.”
Someone told me yesterday that God has more than enough feet out there. But He has much fewer inside these walls. And that got me thinking about what my true purpose it. I love serving the Lord – I love being His feet – but my heart is not in prison. It is longing for the future. And I realized that I have to be ALL here! The heart is deceitful and I can get so consumed with being home that I forget why I am here. And as of today, I am reigning my heart in. I am going to be ALright – and I’m gonna be ALL RIGHT where I am. And I’m going to be ALL for Christ. And while I will still hope for home, I will stay in the present until it’s time. Lord, my times are in Your hands!
