Proverbs of a 39 yr old man
Still waiting. Minutes have turned into hours. Hours have turned into days. And days have turned into months. And as the years go by you hope maybe this is the acceptable and favorable year of the LORD. Like a woman that’s pregnant hoping to give birth in nine months, so are the dreams to a dreamer. Those nine months are days of harsh labor and pain. The cravings of the good and the bad and everything in between. We know as humans it takes 9 months to give birth to child give or take. Many things though in life come to us premature and we need to nurse it into full blown. Other things are right on schedule, and you plan perfectly and give birth to a God given idea or task. But what I want to touch on lastly is late births. The travail of wanting to give birth to a past due date. It’s hurts so bad within you not seeing the fruit of all your labor. Still waiting, but ready to push even till your last breath. Because hope deferred makes the heart sick. But when desire comes it is a tree of life to treasure forever. For those who are still waiting. Keep pushing. Keep living. For a day to the LORD is like a thousand years. His nine months is different from our nine months. LORD, you saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Your hands have made me and fashioned me; give me understanding to learn Your commandments. Your hands shaped me and altogether formed me. You clothed me with skin and flesh, and you knit my bones and sinews together. While I am still waiting for your purposes to found out for me. Praise God, I know you gave me life and showed me your unfailing love. My life was and is preserved by your care. You will give birth to your will for my life as surely as a baby is due and pushed out in nine months. Your Will be done!
