I was having a conversation with a friend yesterday and she confided in me on how sad she had been feeling lately. She has been searching for a job for over a year since she finished NYSC but none was forthcoming. She wakes up unhappy and feels like things aren’t going as planned. In her own words “I just haven’t been happy lately. No job. So what am I supposed to be happy for. Talking to people doesn’t excite me anymore”.
When I gave her the ” you are alive, there is something to be happy for” speech, she replied “I am grateful to God. After all it is because I am alive that I can feel happy or sad. I just feel I am not where I am supposed to be at this stage of my life”.
I felt empathy for her because I was and currently am in her shoes. I waited almost a year for a job, then I got one but the salary package isn’t what I expect. At my stage, it is outrageously too small. I have felt bad a times with the position of things and used to complain to God way back.
Until I realized that God makes everything beautiful in His own time not mine. I heard it, I believed it, I digested it and it because my mantra. I might not be where I want to be, but I am not where I used to be. Progress might seem slow now, but I am positively sure that my God hasn’t forsaken me and all His plans would come to fruition very soon. It is tiresome to wait for that step. It is annoyingly tiresome but I rather wait on God than desperately fall into the unpredictable, desperate, selfish hands of man. As Bishop Oyedepo would always say “What God cannot give me, may I never have it. Where God cannot take me, may I never get there”.
While writing this article, the Holy Spirit sent a song by Steve Crown. A powerful song for every worryer, everyone getting desperate, everyone getting impatient with God.
Guess the title of the song….
“We Wait On You”.

And never forget to wait on God for your daily needs. Wait on Him for your marital breakthrough. Wait on Him for that job. Wait in Him for that personal comfort you seek. God is never late, we just lack the patience to wait.
Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
