Pinky Promise

Sometimes, I just really don't understand God and what He is up to. 

I can't be the only one who feels this way. 

I mean, doesn't God say he has plans to prosper me? To give me a hope and a future?

Then why does it seem some of these promises and desires in my heart are slow coming?

I was thinking about Abraham, and how when God told him and Sarah that they would have a baby, they laughed... because they were old, and it seemed ridiculous that someone at such an old age would have children (Abraham was 100 btw).

But they did have a son, and named him Isaac. But to me, even crazier than having a son at such an old age, at one point God actually asks Abraham to kill his son, as sort of test to see if he really trusted God. Of course we know how that story ends, God spares Isaac's life, and Abraham passed the test. 

As I read these stories in the Bible, it helps me to see that God's ways are not not necessarily my own. That He is up to something, even if I can't see or it doesn't make sense.

Habakkik 2:2-3 And then God answered: “Write this.
    Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
    so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
    pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
    And it doesn’t lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
    It’s on its way. It will come right on time.

Has God made you a promise that hasn't come to pass? Write it down, somewhere you can see it. Remind yourself, that God has promised and God does not lie.

Do you have a dream that you want to accomplish? Then everything you do from this point forward should be in pursuit of that dream. 

God's ways are not our own. When you feel discouraged, remember that Abraham had a son at 100 years old! His dream came to pass, in God's perfect timing. 

God's word is true... and God always follows through, pinky promise ;)

  1. This is a beautiful reminder. I love the song Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong. One of my favorite lines is "You've never failed and you won't start now". He is Good. He is Faithful. <3

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
