Sittin', Waitin', Wishin'

I've got the lines of Jack Johnson's song "Sitting, Waiting, Wishing" stuck in my head. Even though this song is about something entirely different, it made me think about how often I get impatient and tired of telling God about the same old problems day in and day out. This leads me to wonder if God is as tired of hearing and seeing my troubles as I am.

We must remind ourselves that God never gets tired of hearing our prayers and it is as simple as this...HE is waiting for the perfect time to answer. Not on our terms, but on his. He wants us to pour our hearts to him even if it is the same thing EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I am so awful at this. I must admit I have a problem when is comes to letting go and giving up control of my destiny. I want to be the one that makes all of the decisions. I want to be the one who decides when and where things will happen. God tests me everyday to let go and let God. He wants me to be patient and wait for the right time in my life for certain things.

Just something that has been on my mind...maybe instead of praying to relieve me of my troubles, I'll pray for patience and give thanks that tomorrow is FRIDAY!


  1. This is beautiful, and honestly is just what I needed to hear today. Thank you for sharing with us. And YAY for almost Friday! OXOXO

  2. Love this post!!! How true and I think we all need to be reminded of this sometimes!

  3. I hear you my friend. I ask God all the time to show me the way, to give me a sign, and sometimes I think that when he does...I truck right on past. I want things to be the way I want them to be and that's that! I think we are all trying to learn to let go sometimes ....

  4. Very true! I struggle with the same thing : )

  5. JM, I am so right there with you. Check your email. :) Love and miss you!
