SHE is not done yet


Online applications can be the worst.

Especially when you're applying for multiple jobs at once, it can be such a pain to fill out the same blank boxes and scroll to find the same item from the dropdown menu.

After all that work, you click 'submit'. Only to see several red ERROR boxes fill the top of your screen. Somehow you forgot to complete a box or you used numbers where there could only be letters. Either way, you are forced to go right back to where you already had been to fix things, especially if it's a required box.

There's no way around it.

As I navigate through this thing called life, I have to talk to God daily about the things that I need to grow in or be convicted about in order to stay my course in living out my life's purpose. Through the years, He's revealed aspects of my thought process or my past that have caused me to act out in pain or become stuck at a pity party of 1. It's not always easy to hear that there's more work to do.

Even though I know I've come a long way from where I used to be even a year ago, I still realize that I'm so quick to press the 'Submit' button on my progress expecting to see 100% performance reports.

I cry out to God, "but I've filled in all the required boxes! I've done everything you asked me to do." Only for Him to reveal ERROR messages asking me to address some required boxes, because He knows what that there are still areas of my life that I need to continue to grow in that I may not be able to see yet.

"I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve."

-Jeremiah 17:10-

However, unlike online forms and applications, we have the freewill to attempt to bypass the required boxes, press 'submit' and receive our "answered prayers" prematurely. But I know that I'm not the only one that has bulldozed my way into the storehouse of my blessings, ripped open the box only to realize that it's not what I thought it would be. Not because the blessing isn't inherently good, but because I was too premature in my faith or process to truly enjoy it as God intended with His perfect timing.

Until we get to Heaven, we're always going to be a work in progress. So don't get discouraged when the Holy Spirit reveals ERROR messages in your life. He's just preparing you to be 'submitted' for the last time when we enter through those Golden Gates!
