Promise that Always Satisfies

Yesterday, you saw someone changing status to just got engaged with a photo of her big diamond ring.

Today, you attended a wedding of one of your college girlfriends.

At the wedding, one of your couple friends shared that they have a baby coming.

Then, you,  a single woman and not in a relationship starts asking, “When will my time come?”  Or, “Will it ever come?”

For the next hours, thoughts would just be filled of what if’s, who and what could be’s. Sometimes, a little longer, days.

Until, thoughts would slowly fade. Life becomes normal again.

Then, another announcement comes in. And it goes the same cycle again.

You can have a lot of different reasons of why it hasn’t come for you yet.

But truth is, there is always only one answer that can satisfy you.

God knows your heart. He knows your desire.

And being satisfied that He knows, you once again resubmit to Him that your time will come.

You once again surrender to Him, knowing that He is writing your story.

Then, you go on living your life for Him, trusting that the best is yet to come.

You hold on to that promise, believing that God is faithful to complete it.

God is writing

Precious

God’s love letter to me tonight.

Isaiah 43:1-7 But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob,he who formed you, Israel:

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

When you pass through the waters,I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,you will not be burned;the flames will not set you ablaze.

For I am the Lord your God,the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,Cush and Seba in your stead.

Since you are precious and honored in my sight,and because I love you,
I will give people in exchange for you,nations in exchange for your life.

Do not be afraid, for I am with you;I will bring your children from the east
and gather you from the west.
I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.

’Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—
everyone who is called by my name,whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.”
