It Will Be Fulfilled

This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.

Habakkuk 2:3


Some of you may know that I started writing many years ago. I had a Children’s book published in 2009 and spent many weekends traveling to book signings and speaking engagements. Then in 2010 Rich and I were married. I went from a single mother of one to being a wife and mother of four; four very active children. Just keeping up with their sports schedule was challenging! Added to that the larger meals to prepare, the larger piles of laundry, the larger amount of traffic through the house, causing more cleaning. On top of all of this, add the dynamic of the emotional and social challenges of teenagers and the blending of kids and parents… At times, I felt like I was in WAY over my head. Taking time to just breathe seemed very challenging at times, never mind trying to find time to write.


Just to clarify, I never for a second regret my husband or our children! But honestly there were many times I cried over what I saw as lost dreams.


Why had God put this passion in me if it wasn’t to be?


Why was I so torn between being there for my family and wanting to lock myself in a room and get lost in words on a page? In the end the making dinner and the piles of laundry always won my time and energy. By the time I hit the bed at night I was done, emotionally and physically.


God places dreams in our heart, visions of what He wants to do for us and through us. Sometimes these things happen immediately and sometimes they are for a future time. We see in the New Testament, (Mark 5:27-29)


She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe.

For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” Immediately the

bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible

condition.


Jesus healed her in an instant!


But if you read the two verses before this, you see, (Mark 5:25-26)

A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding. She had suffered a

great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them,

but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse.


I can’t imagine how this woman must have felt suffering for 12 years. She longed for healing, she sought after healing; spending all she had, not just a lot of money but all she had, on doctors and not only not getting any better, but actually getting worse! But still, in all of this, she pushed through the crowd, she was adamant, “If only I could just touch the hem of His garment…”


Coincidently, Rich and I just celebrated our 12th anniversary and I am now, finally, at a time in my life that I am finding time to write again. I have a renewed hope that God will fulfill the vision that He placed in me years ago. There were times that I never thought I would have the time to sit down and pour out on to the page, the words from my heart. God knew what He was doing, He was not delayed in His timing.


You may have been dealing with a circumstance for years and your answer seems slow in coming. Know that the Lord will not tarry, His timing will not be delayed. The vision may be for some time in the future. Just wait, it will come! He knows the plan and it will be fulfilled!
