Hold On

Okay “hold on” sounds a lot like “wait” to me. Why is it that we hate to wait? I think impatience is almost a trait of our culture, not a very good one at that.

Just think of some things that we need to wait for – if we wanted to eat the bread as soon as we mixed it we’d have a giant stomach ache and miss the aroma of that baking bread. Maybe that applies to us too. People with a sweet fragrance that follows them around are probably not the ones who have been “instant”. Sometimes we need to go through the heat to bring out our best and help us learn from those trying experiences. Through the furnace of affliction our character is given depth. Through those testing times we see how faithful our Lord is and learn to trust Him. If we never had the testing times we’d be shallow and without and significance depth.

It was during one of those trials that I sensed the Lord Jesus whispering to me:

My Daughter, there are times which are hard for you but they are not impossible with Me. I have heard you. I see your unrest and am not far off. My answer fits the question. Have patience and hold on.

Prayer: Father God, can we actually thank you for the trials? Yes, we should as those are times of growth and learning more of You. We can and should praise you through those not so fun furnace experiences knowing that we will come out of that furnace and shine a bit more, reflecting our precious Savior. Help us to persevere. AMEN
