Delay is Not Denial

 I was trying to watch an episode of TBN's "Praise the Lord" online yesterday. My computer kept freezing during my attempt but one of the guests on the show was giving their testimony and said something that stuck with me, "Delay is not Denial". Those words  have struck a chord with me!

I have been feeling stuck because I want to write but can never find the time to do it. I also want to study for this test to get my certification to teach but every time I sit down with the book something happens and I have to stop. I find myself getting frustrated because I feel like things are not happening fast enough.I knew the Lord was speaking to me when I heard those words, "Delay is not Denial".. I need to be more patient. Just because things are not happening in my timetable does not mean they are not going to happen!

This reminder came at the perfect time. I just have to remember that God's promises will come true in His time. Things may be delayed but it doesn't mean they won't happen. God is not saying No, He is just saying wait. So from now on I will remember these words whenever I start to feel frustrated with myself... "Delay is Not Denial!"

Jessie,

Beautifully said. I totally agree. It has to be His timing...not ours.

Thank you! Sorry it took so long to respond. Everyone has been sick with the flu and we are just all starting to recover!

Thanks for the positive thoughts. I always want things NOW and I'm constantly learning to wait on His timetable.
