“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come…”- Habakkuk 2:3.

Hey guys it’s been a minute? Things are probably looking shaky on the “greener pasture” YouTube,  that is why I am back home like a prodigal son hahaha. Honestly I miss writing, I miss the readers, it’s been quite an uphill battle this year. I think it’s safe to say my faith was tested and because I believe so much in vulnerability we our going to unpack together. 

The beginning of this year I believe God had directed me to start a YouTube channel, it has been such a daunting experience I must admit, uncharted waters to be precise. Not only did I know my eloquence and articulation in speech was unrefined, it also felt like I am competing with established channels, people that had already build social media presence…but I found comfort in scripture in that God doesn’t call the qualified but qualifies the called, (1 Corinthians 2:1-5). Not only that, most readers found it hard to adapt to the change or transition. And I honestly from the bottom of my heart understand, Youtube requires attention span, more data also my struggle in finding myself in the platform probably frustrated you the readers as much as it frustrates me.

During my confusion and struggles, I started doubting God that he really called me into this ministry…again. Nothing really made sense anymore, I got lost in the gist of figuring things out in the process I felt like a failure. In my season of hopelessness God still pursued me, and took me back to the story of David, that before David became a King he was a sherperd, before he could kill Goliath he had to learn how to kill bears and lions. There are many stories that have shown a display of practicing while waiting. I can imagine Joseph knowing at a young age that people are going to bow down to him only for him be sold as sold for a slave and imprisoned, without a doubt there was a time he thought that the prophecy was wrong. The bible says although it tarries wait for it, for something to tarry it has to be delaying, in the case of waiting,  I believe that it delays because of repetitive practices of refining. Believing the same thing over and over while waiting. I still have no clue of what the will of God or his intention to call me into the uncharted waters of blogging and YouTube is or was. But one thing I know for sure is that his thoughts are higher than my thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). Also he promises that no eye has seen, nor ear has heard what the Lord has in store for those that love the Lord ( 1 Corinthians 2:9). All I can do is continue to sow and labour until my harvest has come. Some people sow and labour in their marriages in the meantime their character is being refined

, if God told you to wait for it…wait. Some people are waiting for their careers to start while waiting, practice either by volunteering or entrepreneurship this will sharpen your skills. Some people are waiting for a business breakthrough, practice consistency, be disciplined.Lastly some people are waiting on God for a spouse while waiting refine your character by learning and unlearning either through the Holy Spirit or investing in some educational podcasts, blogs and YouTube videos. It really does sounds simple but it’s hard it requires all the fruits of the spirit to wait while it tarries.
