I’ve been in a season of waiting for an answered prayer for 25 years now. It’s seems like this prayer is never going to be answered. I wonder what I’m doing wrong, what I did wrong in the past and if no is actually the answer. But then, I remember that Moses wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. He wasn’t ready for the promised land, and I’m not ready either. It’s a sad realization, but I’m not. I don’t know what is ahead if this prayer is answered the way I want it. Maybe the person I’m waiting is not ready either. All I know is that God is preparing me and I must wait. Hopefully it won’t take 40 years! LOL Seriously, if it takes that long or longer, I know God knows what is best.
I’m in a season of waiting with my ministry also. I just knew that because I was excited about the ministry that others would be also. It’s a ministry designed to help women. Who wouldn’t be excited? Yeah, well..not so much, at least from what my physical eyes & ears see and hear. I was/am seriously like “Come on people! This is a worthwhile ministry! Why aren’t you as excited as I am and eagerly supporting it?”
It’s been about a year since I started the ministry and I honestly thought I would be further along right now. After all, I knew this was my calling YEARS ago, although I didn’t take any action until recently. But as I’ve learned in this season of waiting, just because I think I’m ready doesn’t mean I actually am ready. There are things I need to learn and steps I need to take in order to be fully equipped to take on this massive undertaking. I’m claiming global recognition, but am I ready for all that will entail. Sadly, I know I’m not. So, I’m learning how to wait in this season. But while I’m waiting on God to provide every resource I will need (and yes, I believe He will) I’m praying and asking God to prepare me for whatever is coming. I am also methodically (no longer frenzied which accomplished nothing) working on ways to improve what I already know, learn things I don’t know, and put in place a solid course of action. I was not fully ready for this ministry. God knew it and He made me know it. Women of Worth will be great. I just need to wait.
