Sometimes, it feels like certain people get whatever they want. I’m not one of those people. I crave MORE. MORE money. MORE fulfillment. MORE peace.
Many people who know me in my real, for real, life know how unsatisfied I am in my career; a career I’ve had for 7 years as of last Friday. I thought I had positioned myself for MORE by getting MORE education but I’ve had my advanced degree for months and haven’t found MORE opportunities for advancement. I’m a pretty private person so I won’t go into details but in my personal life, I also DESIRE MORE.
So why can’t I get what I want? Why don’t I have MORE?
One night a couple of weeks ago, I was on Twitter, following the #TwitterChurch topic, a nightly “sermon” of tweets from Jay Gamble, a Maryland minister. He tweeted the following:
“God always blesses who He can TRUST… Can you be trusted? If God sent the thing you have been praying for into your life RIGHT NOW, would you honor God with it? I know you’ve been praying for MORE money. If God sent it to you RIGHT NOW, would you tithe? The husband or wife you’ve been praying for…if they showed up at your door RIGHT NOW, could God trust you with them? While trusting God is CRITICAL, I’m working on MYSELF so God can trust me. Trust goes both ways. When God can trust you with the blessing, you will have the blessing.”
Now, aint that a word?! I don’t have MORE to say. I have MORE to do—prayerfully work on myself so God can trust me with MORE!
