Waiting on God pt 2

It's been one month since I last updated. Wow, time flies. Since then I've landed a job and met 412 different people. I've been thinking about something I wrote a little while ago. I wrote the following....

And yet here I sit, waiting. I'm waiting on God no less. I
find myself in an interesting position. I'm annoyed that I have to wait but then
again it is God. At this point I don't have a job or even a lead on a job. I'm
just waiting. Sure I'm putting my name out there and trying to network where i
can but it always leads me back here to just sitting in my chair and waiting.I
think that God might be telling me something. I need to wait more often. I need
to wait on Him and for Him. In my desire to get everything as quickly as
possible I've tried to eliminate all of the waiting in life. But when it comes
to God, I should always be willing to give up the fast track and wait for Him.
We have made our lives so busy that we no longer wait on the one who gives us
everything in the first place. Even when I worked at a church I kept busy
because that's what I was supposed to do. Keep busy, get things done. It's
remarkable how our lives can suddenly become so busy that we neglect to wait on
what God has for us.As I sit here and stare out of the window on a rainy day, I
think, and hope, and pray that from now on I can just stop and wait on God.
Maybe that's what this time off is all about.

So I waited. And God came through. It's crazy how He always does. It didn't happen how I thought that it would. I thought that I would have a job within a month at least. But 6 months later there I was. God rarely actually does things the way that I want him to do things. It's starting to make me think that maybe He knows what He's doing. In fact I'm getting to the point where I'm almost sure of it. So maybe, just maybe the next time that something is happening in my life , i'll skip the stress and look straight to God. He's always been faithful. Try it sometime. See what happens.
