The Voice of “Almost”

via Daily Prompt: Almost

Almost finished.

I almost reached my goals.

The thoughts of Mr. or Mrs. “Almost“. As you read the below thoughts, see if you can relate.

“Why does it feel like what I’m working on is not finished yet?” I’ve been working on this thing for days, months, years….I can’t even remember”.

“I seek God and sometimes feel like “almost” is not enough.  God, can I really do this? Wait, yes, yes, yes, I can!”

Have you ever asked yourself these questions or had thoughts like these?  Like the very thing you’ve been pursuing, working so hard for or mulling over, is taking just to damn long to come to pass.  Excuse my french.  I’m just expressing what you’re probably thinking as you’re reading this blog.

You are not alone!  Let me say it again. You are NOT alone.

We all have times in our lives when we feel like the results of what we’ve been believing  and hoping for are taking wayyyyyyy too long.

Know that God is faithful and already has the finish line waiting for you.  Whatever your dreams are, remember that your “almost” is God’s delight.

Share a time in your life when you felt like you “almost” wanted to throw in the towel, but something inside you kept telling you to keep going?
