My Time is Coming...

Lianna posted this devotional this morning. She & her husband have traveled a hard road with the last few weeks being EXTREMELY hard, more than I could imagine. I have been praying for them so much...and then today she posted this and has just blessed me! I keep reading over these words.

I always tell myself that God is going to do IMMEASURABLY more than I can even imagine. That his plan for me is even greater than my wildest dreams. I know that God gave me the desire to be a mom and I know that he is going to fulfill that desire. I KNOW it. But, at the same time, there is this twinge of doubt that creeps up. "But what about those women who wanted babies and NEVER had any? Didn't they have this desire? Why am I any different?" It happens more than I would like to admit. The doubt. The "buts" and "what ifs." But there are also times of pure joy and worship for what I know that God has in store for me. When the doubts come creeping in, I just have to start praying that they go away and that God prove them wrong and let my life, my story, be a living testimony to HOW GREAT OUR GOD IS!! Let it be, God!!

I hope you are blessed by the devo below. Thanks Lianna for sharing today!!


“For the vision is yet for an appointed time...though it tarry, wait for it.”(Habakkuk 2:3, KJV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

If you’ve been standing in faith for the promises of God, I want you to know today that your time is coming! The dreams and desires in your heart, the things you want to accomplish, the situations you want to see changed will happen. Don’t give up just because it has taken a long time, or just because you’ve tried and failed.

I encourage you today — get your fire back! Don’t be complacent about pursuing what God has placed in your heart. It may be taking a long time, but God is a faithful God. No matter how long it’s been, no matter how impossible it looks, if you’ll stay in faith, your time is coming. Every dream that’s in your heart, every promise that has taken root, God not only put it there, but He has every intention of bringing it to pass.

Declare today, “My time is coming...God is working behind the scenes on my behalf...I will fulfill my destiny...I will fulfill the plan God has for my life!” As you declare, expect, and wait for the appointed time, your faith will grow. Your hope will grow. And you’ll step into the destiny God has in store for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father in Heaven, I receive Your truth today and hold on to Your promises. I ask that You ignite my heart with Your holy fire so that I can pursue Your perfect plan for my life. Make my thoughts and words agreeable to Your will as I meditate on Your Word. In Jesus’ name, amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen

I really like the Message version of this verse. So, I'll end by repeating it:

Habakkuk 2:3
The Message (MSG)

Full of Self, but Soul-Empty
2-3And then God answered: "Write this.
Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what's coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn't lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It's on its way. It will come right on time.

Kristina,

You have no idea how God is using you! :D I have a situation that I am standing in faith for (not infertility related, marriage related) and I'd really like to share how God has used you as encouragement and in a couple of very specific ways. Please email me when you can, BeautifulChaos2010@hotmail.com

We don't know each other but through a mutual friend/acquaintance but I do follow your blog. :) You are such a blessing!!
