THIRTY-EIGHT. (57 Ways to Beat Loneliness & Depression)
Stop “Waiting on God.”
It feels great to say that you are “waiting on God.” You are waiting for him to do something. Whenever He gets ready, he will do it. You feel holy, and pious and spiritual and well…after all it’s important to learn to be patient.
God has already done everything He will ever do. He has done His part. It is up to you to trust Him and do what He tells you to do. No I’m not advocating for you to do whatever you want to do and hope for the best. What I’m saying is stop doing nothing, just because you are waiting on God to do something. Instead go out and live the life God has called you to live.
Have faith, and God will show you the amazing things which he has ordained for you since the beginning of time. Resist evil and accept good, God has already commanded you to fight, don’t say “He’s allowing this to teach me something.” No! God allows WHAT YOU ALLOW.
There’s a different between waiting with patient expectation, and waiting because you never know what God will do.
Remember life is meant to lived eagerly.
