If not now, then when?

Just because something isn’t happening for you right now, doesn’t mean that it will never happen.

I am eagerly waiting for several breakthroughs. It is tough when each day goes by and you don’t see any changes. The tendency to give up slowly takes over your mind. But there is a bit of hope telling you to hold on a little bit longer. How long will this last? It is even harder when you look around and so many people have received their breakthrough. You wonder if God has forgotten about you.

You can’t compare yourself to someone else because you don’t know the full story.  You don’t know how long that person had to wait or the pain and suffering that person had to endure.  It is easy to look at the end result, but what about the process? The process that you are currently going through. A process that yields patience, endurance, and suffering. How long will this last?

I went through a similar process a few years back. Everyone around me was being blessed. I was wondering when my turn will come. I had to wait close to a year to receive it. It wasn’t easy. However when I looked back, I realized that everything happened at the right time.  If I had received my blessing earlier, I wouldn’t have received the result that I wanted.

The question is how long are you willingly to wait for your breakthrough?  Remember just because it isn’t happening now doesn’t mean it won’t. Your breakthrough will come at the right time. I challenge you to wait it out.

    I think that waiting is the hardest part when you do see the blessings bestowed on others. I’ve learned to focus on ME and what I’m doing and things started turning more in my favor.

      Waiting certainly is the most difficult process when you are waiting for things to change. I learned to stay focus on my goals even when things seem to remain the same.Things are subject to change for the better.

    Oh my gosh! YES! YES! YES! I’ve spent so many years, no wasted them, waiting for my turn. I finally stopped waiting and took charge. I am so much happier for doing so. Thanks for writing about this. Many people do not know that they need to take charge of their lives.

    1. Main Diva:

      Waiting is a process, but during that process you still have to take actions to create that change. I am glad that you were able to turn things around.

    I’m so glad you wrote this. It gets really hard to trust the process and get through it while it seems that everyone around is being blessed but in this day and age where people are all about posting their highlight reels, the best thing is just to focus on you and stop looking from side to side.

      Thank you. There will always be distractions. How we chose to react to them can stagnate our growth. The best thing to do is to stay focus on your own journey.

    Waiting can be the hardest thing to do. I have learned that when we are in a holding pattern one of the best things to do is keep our mouths shut. Often we stay stuck in a season because of the words we speak! Great post and thanks for joining us on the #FitFaith Link Up this week! Hope to see you again!
