Life is all about timing… the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable… attainable. Have the patience, wait it out.  It’s all about timing.” 
―    Stacey Charter

I have learned two distinct, and, in my opinion, opposite, schools of thought.  The first involves things happening in their own time, and that it is not up to me to force it.  Time takes time, as the saying goes.  The second school of thought is being responsible for yourself, for your actions, doing the next right thing, cleaning up your side of the street.

To me, these two different philosophies can be completely contradictory.  At the very least they are confusing… how do you know which one is the right one?

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, I have two different relationships in my life that remain unresolved in terms of my “wreckage from the past.”  For the past several months, I have been operating under the first school of thought… I would attempt to have patience, and work on my own life, and eventually God would let me know when it is time to deal with each of these relationships.

But time is marching on, and no progress (at least, in my opinion) has been made in either of these situations.  Further, I have external circumstances entering into the picture that are forcing me to reconsider my “patience” route, and now I am wondering if I should be using my other option… making something happen.

Here’s the bottom line:  as much as I have heard God speaking to me through various people and events in the past 6 months, He is not always as forthcoming as I would like Him to be!  Let’s hope I walk out the door this morning and there is a sky writer telling me what to do…

  1. Although I doubt a sky writer will show up, I know if you keep praying somehow an answer will become visable. I’ll be thinking and praying for your too!


  2. Did you sky writer show up? I notice that sometimes the answer I get is, “You don’t get the answer today.” I don’t usually prefer that answer either. What I have found is that I put my best effort forth in any situation and leave the rest up to Creator. This way I can put my head on my pillow each night knowing I did my part to the best of my ability.
