While you’re waiting for your shot, here are eight things to keep yourself busy.
Read Rick’s 31-Day Devotions
Worship – Only God can bring satisfying comfort to your daily living. School may interfere with your time with God. Fight to find space to make the Lord your priority.
Hope – God is not “into time” like you. His plans may take a while to happen. Keep your hope fixated on the goodness of God.
Rest – Guard your heart against the temptation of forcing life to happen. Let the “game” come to you rather than manipulating it according to your agenda.
Trust – Your goal is not to keep from adversity. God allows suffering, which will teach you how to walk in faith. Your difficulties are opportunities to put Christ on display.
Imitate – There are always lonely people within your sphere. And you may never know who these people are. May your life be a living testimony to the beauty of Christ.
Repent – The secret weapon in your life is the ability to change. Like a super-hero, you have other-worldly power. Access this grace daily.
Pray – Ask, and you shall receive, and prepare your heart for what He gives. Your asking and His giving may surprise you. Don’t worry about it. Just ask.
Gratitude – Your attitude when you are not getting what you want makes your faith real and active. Make appreciation for God your habit.
Time to Reflect
- From the list, write out one practical plan that you can implement into your life.
