Do Not Forget About Now

May 23, 2013 — 2 Comments

Have you ever been planning something for what seems like such a long time and it does not seem to be working out? All the details, the people, the event, the facilities, etc. does not seem to be working out. Whether it is an event for the church or your group, whether it’s something in your own personal life, you are just in a rut and it seems like you hit a glass ceiling?

It can be so frustrating. We want to bad to move to the next level. We have been planning so far ahead in our ministry or in our lives because we know what we feel God is calling us to do or where to go and it seems like there should not be this much resistance because we KNOW where we feel we are supposed to go.

Maybe we know where we need to be but the time in which are supposed to get there is not the right time. Maybe we are looking too far ahead and God is telling us to look and enjoy and minister in the now. I think some of us, me included, want to be on the fast track but God does not work on our time. I wish. God’s timing is perfect.

If our ministry goals are not happening in the time in which we want them maybe it’s because it’s not in God timing that HE WANTS THEM. Maybe He is telling us to relax, trust Him more, and be in the now. Minister in the NOW.

Don’t miss the opportunities that around around you…..NOW. Enjoy it now.

Ecclesiastes 3:22-

So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work,because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?
