The Wait

Lets talk, Queens

Throughout our lives, we find ourselves waiting.

You could have the most “go-getter” spirit out there, but we are all forced to wait at some point in our lives.
Whether it be for a sign, a word, a green light – there is an inevitable waiting period.

It’s the wait that tells us a lot about ourselves – provides a mirror image of what we look like amid uncertainty.

SERVE

How are you waiting?
How are you serving?
The thing or “who” we are waiting on often reveals what it is that we serve.

Your “how” is influenced by the way in which you respond to your waiting period.

I can tell you that I am currently in a waiting period, but how I have been waiting is what has drastically impacted my experience.

To be candid, I am waiting on the Lord to show up in school for me. I’m at a place where I’ve trusted Him so far up to this point and it would simply be foolish of me to turn around now. This also means that it would be foolish of me to try to take the wheel from the one who has been leading me and showing me the way this entire time.

REST

In this season, I am to rest.
Not worry about how to get to the destination or what happens when we arrive, simply rest.
I am learning to relinquish my power and replace it with something greater — the Lord’s wonder. In turn, I am provided with the opportunity to have more authority.
Authority to rest. Glorifying God through rest shows the world that my victory did not come by my might, but by the grace of God.

REFLECT

What are you learning in your wait period?
As the new year approaches, think about whether or not you are using your New Year’s resolutions as mediums to enable your fears.
Has waiting for January 1st allowed you to mistake waiting with hiding?
Why do you have to wait until the first of the year for redemption?
Why wait 365 days to live as if you are new, when you can live such a way starting now?

IDENTITY

I encourage each of you to continuously create resolutions for yourself throughout the year. However, if you find yourself losing sight of your goal or falling off the tracks, be encouraged. God will help get you back on track or even redirect your course if you allow Him to.

You can live in the freedom of being made new whenever you choose.

PRAYER

I pray that as the year ends and we move into a new decade, that you will remember who you are, whose you are, and what that means for you and your life.

The magnitude of the blessing that is being able to live in a new era, pales in comparison to what it means to be made new in Christ, each moment of your life.

Happy New You!

Until next year Queen,
Chantel

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
