When I decided to do a 31 Day series, I knew I wanted it to be something that would encourage and strengthen other women going through infertility. I thought about what I struggle with and what I could do to ease the burden of this journey- even a little bit.
I realized I needed to do a series on prayer because it’s something I struggle with. My prayers regarding my infertility usually go like this: “Dear God, please give me a baby. Please let this treatment work. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Amen.”
There’s nothing wrong with a prayer like that; those types of prayers have their place. But I want my prayers to be more than a checklist of things I hope God gives me. I want to learn more about who God is and, most importantly, deepen my relationship with Him.
Each post will consist of a Bible verse, a brief meditation on the day’s topic, and some suggested Scriptures for further study.
I hope you’ll join me in seeking God during the next 31 days!
Day 1: Pray for Patience
“This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” – Habakkuk 2:3 (NLT)
Praying for patience is scary.
By definition, patience assumes a wait. So by asking God for patience we’re surrendering to the wait.
I don’t like waiting. I want what I want- right now!
But Habakkuk 2:3 tells us that God’s vision for our life will happen on His timetable.
God is not running late. Everything is going according to (His) schedule.
He knows it may feel slow to us, but He promises He’s not delayed.
He asks us to wait patiently. To trust that He what He has planned for us will actually happen.
As you pray today, ask God to help you wait patiently for His plan to be fulfilled.
