Maybe, It's Just a Comma~


Never place a period where God has placed a comma.
-Unknown

So often,
when God gets still and
our prayer seems lost somewhere between earth and heaven,
we jump to the conclusion that God is
not listening,
not caring,
not moving.

We start to believe we've come to a dead end,
that this is "just the way it will always be."
We place a period at the end of our hope,
the end of our dream,
the end of faith.

And yet,
so many times,
when we can't sense God working,
when everything is still,
when we feel as though God has said "no",
God is simply pausing.

Pausing until
the circumstances are right,
the answer is right,
the timing is right.

We want it at this very moment,
God wants it the moment it should be.
We want it now,
but God wants it perfect.
We want what we want,
God wants what is best.



 



Don't mistake God's comma for a period.
While you are pausing,
while you are waiting on God,
keep trusting,
keep hoping,
keep believing.

In the end, it will be worth the wait.
When God is all said and done,
all you will be able to say

 about what He has done 
is "Thank you, God".~♥
