Unsought opportunity; unbidden gratitude.

“Thank you, Lord, for the job opening.”

“Thank you for the opportunity to interview.”

“Thank you that both interviews went well.”

Now please please please just make an offer happen like now or really really really soon.

I’ve been asking for balance and

attempting to position myself

in a place of dependence on You –

attempting to acknowledge You

in every day, the mundane,

and all things, small or great.

“Put your desires in my heart, Lord.”

I wonder if that day will ever come –

that day when I am fully and wholly

desirous of participating

in everything You want me to do.


I drive and am distracted.

I am trying to hard to pray,

but all my prayers seem repetitive,

until –

“Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to wait on you.”

I’m suddenly glad You asked me to wait,

because that means . . .

You’re coming.

And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” – Habakkuk‬ ‭2:2-3‬ ‭(ESV‬‬)
