in between the now and the not yet

By January 29, 2007Church

Many times we find ourselves in the space between now and the not yet. It is the place in life where we may feel like we’re in a holding pattern — circling around, waiting for directions for directions to land or to be given the green light to takeoff.

We often feel like the formative moments in life require action … we must do something, tackle something, gain something, or give up something.

Perhaps there is just as great formation in the still moments, when no action is required or expected. When taking action may be the least prudent of all decisions.

Often God uses this space between the now and the not yet to shape and mold us in ways that endless action would never allow for. It may be that he is forming us in the interim for greater challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
