Wait(ing) – Everything in it’s time


By Destiney McIntosh

Not no


Not yet

More like waiting for


Not no


Not yet

It’s not time


But in time

You will find


It’s not much different from yet

It seems like a delay

But what sustains 

Is the t

The cross

When you keep Christ in your yet

You will feel

Your yes

It is coming

Do not fret

It’s not no


Not yet

      – 5.17.19

I am learning about time. It seems infinite and limited in the same vain. Like it goes on forever, and at the same time all we have is now. Time seems to drag the most when I am waiting for something.

I am waiting for a lot of things.

Waiting for my new journey to begin.

Waiting for what I have been promised.

Waiting for my husband.

The bible says that, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

I get eager at the thought of the things that God has put on my heart. I know that I will be married one day. I will have children one day. My words will reach numbers of people I cannot imagine. But I must wait. The bible says that God makes all things beautiful in its time.

The wait is not to torture me, or make me miserable.

I am waiting because God is making my story beautiful.

Making our story beautiful.

So, I will wait because I can’t imagine this story with anyone else. And while I am waiting, God is showing more and more that he is my STRENGTH.

The bible also says that though we cannot see or imagine what God will do, we have been equipped with the thing that knows God’s thoughts; the Holy Spirit  (1 Corinthians 2:10). I feel that people often leave that out when they quote “no eye has seen or ear has heard nor has it entered into the hearts of man what God has prepared” (1 Corinthians 2:9)… verse ten then says “BUT, it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit”.

What is it that he has revealed to us?

The wait is not in vain. 

“Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5)

“Faint not for in due season you will reap what you have sown.” (Galatians 6:9)

“All things work together for the good of those that love God and are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

“God is faithful to bring to completion every good work that he began.” (Philippians 1:6)

And, “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

I keep these scriptures on my heart. Though I may not know every detail of what is to come. I trust what God has put on my heart. I trust the promises that he has spoken to me. I will wait on the Lord. By his Spirit I will prevail.

You know how they say beauty is pain?

Waiting kind of hurts, but it’s part of the process. To make all things beautiful…
