Waiting For The Promises


It seems to take such a long time for a fresh bud to blossom.  You know that the promise of the full rose and it’s fragrance is there, but still it remains shut.

In the same way you are looking at the promises that I have given to you and they look like rose buds.  They have potential, but yet have not reached maturity yet.

No one who looks at a bud thinks it is a waste of time or cuts it off the bush.  Rather they wait.  For you cannot rush it’s opening.  If you had to force the bud open, you would surely destroy it.  In the same way, be patient my child.

For I have not forgotten you.  Rather look at the promise that awaits.  Rather take the time to praise me about the good things that are ahead.  Look into my eyes, knowing that what I have begun in your life, I will surely completely.

Watch as this tender bud begins to blossom, for soon it will open fully and then the fullness of its beauty and of it’s fragrance will be obvious for everyone to see.

I have plans of blessing for you my child.  I have many tender promises that are budding even now.  Be patient and hold tightly onto me, for when you least expect it, my promises will blossom and you will know that the wait was worth the goodness that I had in store for you.

  1. Just what I needed to hear today and confirmation of what God has been saying to me about waiting on Him.
    Thank you for your faithfulness

  2. Mark 4:26-32
    Amplified Bible (AMP)
    26 And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground,
    27 And then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and [a]increases—he knows not how.
    28 The earth produces [acting] by itself—first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
    29 But when the grain is ripe and permits, immediately he [b]sends forth [the reapers] and puts in the sickle, because the harvest stands ready.
    30 And He said, With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use to illustrate and explain it?
    31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all seeds upon the earth;
    32 Yet after it is sown, it grows up and becomes the greatest of all garden herbs and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air are able to make nests and dwell in its shade.
