The other day I was agonizing over a few things I’ve been manifesting that have yet to materialize. I felt myself growing frustrated and impatient. I tried to shake the feeling, but it wasn’t going away easily. I even began to think about my plant post from last week for some encouragement. That didn’t help much this time either. I decided to say a silent prayer then let my worries go.
Not too long after doing that, I drove into a parking garage where I was forced to park on the rooftop. I got out the car, and the New Orleans’ skyline hit me dead in my face. I stood there for a second in awe. Not because of the beauty it presented, but because that skyline reminded me of the time in my life when I was praying to live in this place and do exactly what I am doing for a living, and now it’s happening.
After receiving that subtle yet powerful reminder, I quickly got my attitude all the way together. I begin to think about all of the other stuff I had prayed for and gotten. I instantly became encouraged.
Often times when we are in need of something, we tend to get impatient and forget that we were once praying for some of the things we have right now. And if God came through then, He’ll definitely do it again in due time. So the next time you find yourself tripping on what you’re lacking, just take a second and remember the blessings you were once wanting and now have. I guarantee you’ll feel a glimpse of hope about what lies ahead.
