I think most people have had occasions when they want something so bad, they try to do whatever they can to make it so!
It can be something as simple as wanting a ‘material possession’ or as complicated as wanting another person to ‘do’ what you would like them to do. I think the first one is easier to deal with then the latter. Wanting a new car, house, electronic device of some sort, new furniture etc. is really dependent on having the money to buy it. Either you have it or you don’t. You may be unhappy when you determine that you can’t afford it at the moment but eventually you need to deal with that fact.
But in the case of a person or another relationship it is not so easy sometimes to accept the way things are between you. I will change to the ‘first person’ and admit that right now I am dealing with such a situation. There have been so many complexities that have happened, and while trying to sort things out they have just become more complicated. When a misunderstanding occurs I believe it’s best when you are direct and talk things out but it is so hard when the other person does not want to.
When there is third parties that are involved it becomes even more stressful because it is a deterrent and distraction to the main issue. It is perhaps better to back away totally and let things settle. In the beginning I didn’t do this because I am a believer in being direct and forthcoming and hoping hope that it can be straightened out that way. Alas it has not happened….
As a Christian of course I have prayed about this and while I was hoping things would rectify, to this point in time they haven’t. Do I then believe that He doesn’t care? Of course not. I believe in His timing that the situation will resolve. I think that perhaps I hindered the whole process because I should have backed off in the beginning. I am having real difficulty ‘waiting’ though because my mind imagines all kinds of scenarios.
This is a case where my ‘personality’ …if you will… contradicts what perhaps my faith says to do…..
‘BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD….
“BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION MAKE YOUR REQUEST KNOWN AND MY FATHER IN HEAVEN WILL HEAR AND ANSWER” and also…
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life……… 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I don’t know if anyone else can relate to this, but it is something that I need to ‘work on’… In the meantime I shall ‘wait’……
