But do we really notice?
For me, I’ve been so caught up in wanting a new job that’s more in line with my talents and gifting that I’m missing out on the many growth and professional development opportunities offered to me in this season. In my singleness, I become so focused on what’s next for me, that I miss God molding me into a suitable helpmeet OR just an overall good woman all because I want what I want when I want it.
Perhaps, you’ve always seen God working in your situations and never missed what He was doing, but for those of us who often lose sight of what’s happening in the waiting season, I want to remind us to look to the Father. Look at the networks He’s placing in front of you to propel you forward. Look at the peace He’s placing in your heart so that you can be that to someone who needs it. Look at the strength you’re gaining for the storm that’s ahead that you don’t even know is coming.
Don’t miss your blessing in this moment. Wait in faith. This time is not a punishment. It’s God’s purpose to make you still so He can plant something good in you.

While I’m still waiting and learning this lesson, I’ve come to see fruition in my life and I’m able to rest in my blessings now for things that I was praying for then.
If you are in a season of waiting, you’re in good hands so was about every being of the Bible. Continue to wait and remember to praise and thank Him before the provision!
We walk by faith, not by sight, and we wait... Hisperfecttimingwaitingongodsbestgodlywaitinghttps://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/14c3959e6874c798a4bd8b694ae188fb/5C662C1C/t51.2885-15/e35/40522500_1690343711095137_4975674994313034256_n.jpg2018-09-11
I'll be continuing my three part post series that was inspired by a post by sonsanddaughterstv .
The first post talked about having peace in your relationship but today's post will be about "The tough conversations"
So, let's get into it...
Whether we like it or not, tough times will happen in every relationship. Its a fact of life, but what's gonna make sure you and your intended or spouse get through those times is the kind of conversations you've had prior to that situation coming up. You can't prepare in the battle field, You prepare for the battlefield.
Be willing and open to talking about the tough stuff. Nothing is too silly, absurd or unimportant not to talk about. Talk about it all. From how many kids you plan to have to how you're gonna have them and how you're gonna raise them.
What will you two do of you can't have kids?
Do you BOTH want kids?
Is adoption an open option?
Is there any illness in his or her family you should know about?
What is their relationship with soap and water like?
Anything that's important to you both should be discussed. That way,you've got most bases covered.
Also,note that you can't cover all the bases but at least, cover the most important to you two.
Ask the tough questions!!! TAG A FRIEND AND TURN ON POST NOTIFICATION.
