Have you ever been sick and tired of being sick and tired? Have you ever been stuck in a place and wondered to yourself, will my situation ever change. I think if we are honest, everyone can think of a time when they felt stuck or overwhelmed by the circumstances of life. Whether the frustration is brought on by school or the job, by friends or family, by financial struggles or health concerns, if we aren't careful, the challenges we face daily can overtake us.
I can think of times in my life when I would earnestly pray for my situation to change. But more recently, I have learned, while prayers are great and are powerful in all situations, often times, while we are waiting on God, He is actually waiting on us.
That's right, He is usually waiting on us to do the last thing He asked us to do. You know, that one thing that He asked you to do, but maybe it wasn't a convenient time for you. Or how about that thing that was a little scary and way outside of your comfort zone. Or maybe He asked you to cut off someone or something you've gotten really attached to that isn't good for you. Whatever that "thing" is in our lives, our blessing and the change we desire is usually connected to it.
