Throughout my life, I have felt when things were changing. I have felt myself changing or things around me changing. Either way, I can always see when something begins to happen.
I’m seeing that now in most areas of my life. Everything seems to be in motion right now. So what’s my plan to handle changes? This time, nothing.
In the past I have worked so hard to figure out what I thought those changes where and then moved as fast as I could in that direction. Almost as if I was trying to force things before it was time because of my impatience. My life decisions have been marked by impatience and trying really hard to elevate my own status. I won’t say I was ever on the wrong path because I believe God controls every step. But my view of things and my impatience never allowed me to find peace in the moment. I was so focused on the changing events in my life happening quickly that I never stopped to enjoy the things God was moving around. I never stopped to smell the roses, if you will.
So now I can very clearly see things changing in almost every area. My plan is to rush nothing. To force nothing. I want to set myself up to receive all along the way. I want to put my ego to rest and let every decision be about what God would will and not what would make me look the best.
So my plan is to sit, wait and watch.
