5 Powerful Things to Reflect on In the Waiting Season

I know the world we live in constantly tells us to level up, do more, get more, be more. But that can be over whelming. And lead us to try and force things that God isn’t even telling us to do or be. Is there ever a time when we can just be still….be silent…. invite calm? Sometimes God want’s us in a waiting season.

In Psalms 37:7 the bible tells us to “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him…

In those times of waiting for Him, we should reflect.

What to Reflect on?

  1. What do we have now? This will trigger a “thankful praise”, because we have so much already.
  2. How can we be better stewards of what and who God has given us? I often forget that taking care of our things is a part of who we are. We shouldn’t just pray for the house and not clean it. I’m guilty of letting things and people “slide by the wayside.” I want to be better at nurturing my relationships and blessings.
  3. What wonderful moments have been happening in our lives? Even the small moments are wonderful in the grand scheme of things, don’t forget about them.
  4. Have I been creating better habits for myself and family? Habits can be implemented when you feel you have so much time on your hands. Create a good habit or break a bad one.
  5. Is there anyone I can help or uplift today (this week, this month)? Think of someone you haven’t spoken to in a while. Send them a text or card in the mail. You can even send a virtual card to email. Just let them know you are thinking of them. There are so many ways. We’ll have to write another post about that.

It can be hard to narrow in on reflections, but we must. Get a journal or notebook and ponder on some of these suggestions from above. What did you find out? Take that to the Lord in prayer. You can still be productive in your waiting season.
