How are you on giving directions? Do you receive directions well? Do you follow them?
I like doing things my way, when I want to do them, how I want to do them, and with who I want to do them with. But that isn’t always feasible. Sometimes we need to wait on directions before we can proceed. And I hate waiting, when I’m ready to go I want everyone else to be ready to go too.
Lately I have been waiting quiet a bit. Sometimes it seems as though that’s all I do, wait, wait, and wait some more. So here I sit, praying that the waiting is coming to an end. I have a gazillon ideas and thoughts racing through my head about all the upcoming events that are planned for the next couple of months. But sometimes it seems as though all my well thought out plans and ideas were done in vain, since most of them won’t ever come to light.
So I have come to the conclusion that I dislike waiting. But why do I hate waiting so much? Did I follow the directions giving? Was I giving directions? Did I understand the directions? Did the static of the world cause me to get distracted and lose my way?
Has this happened to you?
So as I sit
patiently waiting, I started to ponder some more: How am I about giving directions? Do I make myself clear? Are they easy to understand? Am I saying one thing but doing another?
I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. Romans 7:15
Lord, I pray that your light is shining from me and that the directions that you give me shine brightly too. I pray that the directions that I pass on are precise and crystal clear. I also pray that the receivers of the directions understand and are able to follow them. Amen.
So waiting might not be my strong suit but I sure do learn a lot sitting here waiting.
Wishing you many Blessings
