There are times in our human existence where we imagine ourselves infallible, we believe that our mind overcomes every obstacle. Where does it stop, though? Only when our mistake has led to disastrous consequences both for ourselves and those around us? Or when we're gently reminded that we are but finite in this infinite reality? They say death is the great equalizer of men. How true, how spot on.
There are many times I've been tempted to and have transgressed boundaries the Lord has set for me. I've ventured beyond the 'big red line' and found only misery and regret on the other side. It's funny that they say the grass is always greener on the other side because when it comes to life itself, there is nothing really, on the other side. The times where we want to believe that there is something awaiting us on the other side are really just times where we want to find excuses to indulge in our own carnality. I'm done living that lie. It's His way and His will for my life from now on.
And that's why I'm patiently waiting for the right time. Because I've been down this path one too many times where I've acted rashly and ruined Perfect plans for me. Whether or not you turn out to be the person God has set aside for me will only be known in His perfect timing. The rest is secondary and unimportant. It's tough, gritting my teeth and watching as life passes both of us by whilst there could have been so many 'opportune' moments. But patience has always been a virtue and more so in this case.
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you."
