The Mid Life Crisis: It All Takes TIME

This takes time…I know we all really dislike that word but I needed to work on my patience so I guess this will be part of my journey.

I’m not included in this number, because I’m not a part of “we all” within this context. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

From the place of my own journey, Time isn’t a concept I have any trouble with. All things take TIME to accomplish. God created the Earth, and all aspects within thus using what? TIME, as it took six days, and since a day with God in His Time is as a thousand years, that took a LOT of time. πŸ™‚

It’s interesting to see what different people will take issue with. In the past I’d seen people who disliked the word “Journey” because it was obvious they found this concept distasteful. However, journeys take TIME, so I guess, you can’t dislike one without disliking the other. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I was listening to a sermon preached by Joyce Meyer that spoke of dreams that God would conceive within His Child if that same Child would learn to receive it. The cultivation, and fruition of dreams take time, and a journey is walked therein to come to a certain finish, then that journey forks off, and more time is spent walking into greater and deeper aspects.

I can remember a time in 2002, when I had no idea what God would do within my life, and believe it or not, He didn’t show me where I would be standing right now. He laid out the timing of my journey, one aspect as a time.

My husband and I were still deep within his first bout of midlife crisis, I had no idea when that would finish; I only knew it would, in time, but at that same time, I had a journey to walk for myself that contained countless steps that led the way forward.

God called me at that time to speak on the midlife crisis to help people navigate through, and I’m trying to remember if I had an issue with either the journey or the time it would take. Quite honestly, I cannot remember those particulars.

What I do remember is thinking He’d tricked me, when my husband exited his midlife crisis in December of 2002, and within three months, I realized I was deep within the transitional state, and that was when I raised cain. Funny thing, I got upset from time to time, because the journey with my husband was so hard, but that upset didn’t hold a candle to the upset I spewed when I found out I’d gone too far to go back.

I didn’t want to be in that dark and cold place, and time was the last thing on my mind. It seemed to be OK for my husband to come through an emotional crisis, but NOT OK for me, LOL! However, I didn’t get a choice that time, either. πŸ™‚ The only way out was through. πŸ™‚

Though it took time, I came through, my life was not wasted, I accomplished a great deal during that time of transition. All of these accomplishments led into becoming what God needed for me to become in Him.

Again, it all took time.

Time is what you have to work with, and time is given for you to learn to walk your journey, to learn about your past, and how you can learn to outgrow your past issues. To change, grow and become what God means for you to be. It doesn’t happen yesterday, nor today, nor tomorrow–it’s all part of a process that involves TIME that will eventually lead into a more peaceful time of living for yourself, not for someone else–YOURSELF.

I don’t believe that fifteen years of my life were wasted, as God led me along the road, that eventually led here. I don’t believe that Time was wasted, when God built the starting platform, then led me elsewhere for a time of change, growth, and becoming, and then, led me back into the work He began in me all those years ago.

I hadn’t even thought about what it would be like to even be resentful of all of the time spent going through three transitions–two were my husband’s, and one was mine, and I hadn’t even thought of being resentful of the time spent stuck in an emotional cycle that I wasn’t aware existed until his midlife crisis.

Life is comprised of two things–a journey, and the time one will spend to walk it through to completion. When a person learns to view these two aspects as a necessary part of living one’s life, Time doesn’t look as bad as one might think it is.

I know I’ve said this before, but time is never wasted, when you walk your journey to wholeness and healing, and beyond that first journey. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and your journeys won’t end overnight, or in a week.

They will take the one word that must be wisely utilized to navigate your journey in full–TIME…

Don’t waste time disliking this word, because time plays a huge part in everybody’s life, God’s included, because His Time is precious, and He doesn’t see His Time as being wasted when He moves according to His Will, to assist one of His children through a trial they cannot move through without His taking of His Time to help them.

If God disliked the word Time, we would all be in trouble. πŸ™‚

We get up in the morning, and by the grace of God, we have another day that gives us time to speak praise, and thanks unto Him. We also have another day that gives us TIME to spread His Word, His Blessings, and to testify to His love, care, and ways of taking us through each day. πŸ™‚ Let us all use wisely, the gift of Time that God has given us, and let us also use it to glorify Him.
