It’s something about arriving to what you already knew was yours. Whether it took longer than expected or not, you’re able to say “I told you so” to the little voice in your head that doubted you the entire time.
Just recently I was chosen to fulfill a Youth Director Position after being the “Interim” for 8 months. While it may seem insignificant to many, my life and career always seemed to be in “intermission.” There was always this push to get past whatever was between me and what I already knew to be mine. While the culture may always discuss the hustle, I noticed they rarely seem to discuss the intermission between show-times. That really be the issue. No one wants to discuss what it actually takes in the “interim” to build the character needed for the next season of your life.
Whether feeling like your dreams are false or what God told you was untrue, you still have to believe that what’s for you is for you. While this year has been the most uncomfortable, it’s in the moments we hurt most that grow us the strongest. 2020 has literally taught me that I’m built do life. Heartbreak, death, and uncertainty has brought me to my knees but I’m still here.
Whether you’re living your best life or still in the “interim” of where you’re headed, know that what’s for you will always be for you. We talk too much about the glory, and not enough about the longsuffering. Truthfully, it’s probably the reason why a lot of us don’t know how to handle the interim and fall at the thought of having to “work through it.” These times seem daunting and uncertain, but know that your future is much bigger than your intermission. It was 2020 that taught me how to sustain my soul through the “interim” of what’s already mine. If life is happening all at once, or a little at a time, please know that God is capable of fixing the leak in your boat while it’s still in the water.
What’s for you will not resist you. But you will resist it by not believing that God has it taken care of.
The humble reality is…………. you/I/we do not.
Love ya'll. Keep Growing In your Interim.
