Today I had a dream that got crushed into a million pieces. I’ve been praying and praying that God would make a way for Kyle and I to move out soon if it was his will. We both struggle with feeling like losers because things happened the way they did and we weren’t able to get a place of our own when we first got married. Things still haven’t moved in that direction and its been 3 years. After finding out that we still aren’t able to get own our own right now, I had a mini break down. I thought about all the recently married couples in our life and how they all have houses or are in the process. It makes me feel worse about our situation. It’s embarrassing and people judge us and think badly of us because we live with my parents. We are blessed and fortunate that they allow us to live where we do. We pay our own bills and buy our own groceries. Despite all of that I still feel like a failure and I don’t feel like an adult.
I went for a run to get out my anger and it helped me a to calm down. I whined to my Mom about it and she reminded me about how I’ve been praying for God’s will to be done. She was right. I have been praying for God’s will to be done. It’s hard to wait sometimes! Especially when you want something so bad. God knows what he is doing and what is in our best interest. I have to keep on holding onto God’s promises and knowing that he knows best and sometimes you have to just wait.
Psalms 62:1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
Psalms 62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
Like the verse says my expectation is from him so my soul will wait only upon God. No matter how hard it gets we have to be patient and wait on Gods timing for all things we have asked him for .
I don’t know if anyone else is going through anything similar but I hope these verses help you and give you comfort the way they did me.

Very good post today! If we will all be honest with ourselves, we all need to be patient and wait for something that we think we need now. Thanks Iva!
It is so hard to wait! I know God’s will and plans for my life are far better than anything I could imagine. I just write what God puts on my heart. I just want to be a vessel. He deserves all the praise and the glory.
