Hello, and welcome to the blog *inserts welcome song and shakes new comers* . I hope you have a good time here☺️
This life no balance.
I say this for a lot of reasons which I believe one way or the other, you’ve got to personally experience it and this post has a little of that in it. Recently, I had to wait for something and it wasn’t easy. I mean, what can be as difficult as having to wait right?
I wish it was that easy mehn. Tbh, we all are in one season of waiting or the other. It’s either the wait just started, or we are in the middle of it or at the end. And you do know that an individual can be at various seasons of waiting right? If you didn’t, now you do and you’re welcome.
As you leave one season of waiting, you enter into another. Problem no dey finish.
So let me briefly explain that. For instance, Lady A has been waiting on a job for let’s say 2 years now and recently, she got employed to a law firm in another state. Now she doesn’t have the funds to relocate there, nor that to rent an apartment. As you’d notice, she’s in another season of waiting and hoping that somehow, she’d get the funds and then begin to look for a suitable accommodation and finally when she starts working, in one way or the other, she’d begin to wait for this promotion.
There are many factors that play a role in an individual’s wait. Out of which I’d be focusing one and that’s what I’ve called the waiting party.
The waiting party for me are the people involved in a person’s waiting season. It’s composed of the support system, the anxious ones, the gossip and others who are in similar situations. Like it or not, when you’re in a waiting season, you’re not the only one in it.
This party usually has an influence on an individual in his/her waiting season.
Faith comes by hearing. If you listen to words that encourage you say for an hour, you’d be encouraged but right after listening to that, you begin to listen to words that tear you apart or makes you believe that what you’re working for isn’t possible say for days. One way or the other, you’d be influenced and begin to lose hope.
An example is Joseph.
He had dreams of his future and he shared them with the people he hoped would support him until his dreams came to a reality. But his waiting party had more of dream killers (approximately 98% of his brothers) than (his parents and 2% of his brothers). And we know how that played out. It probably wouldn’t have been that difficult if he had more of a supportive crew.
Another example is the woman with the issue of blood, and even Jesus while waiting to be crucified (if you know, you know).
The point is this: just like a party (owambe), if it’s composed more of extroverts, including the DJ, MC, the lives of the parry, then you can be rest assured that it’s gonna be da bomb and you’d have the time of your life even if you’re just a ‘chair dancer’ like some of us.
So is the waiting party. I’ve come to realize that the percentage of each character determines to a large extent the outcome of the wait. And that’s why Jesus had to shut the crowd out when He was going to raise Lazarus.
Just like the way people are invited to a party (excluding the mo gbo, mo ya crew), you consciously or subconsciously invite the members of your waiting party either by telling them about your situation, or just by them being your friends or family.
Recently, I had to wait for something and it wasn’t easy. I mean, what can be as difficult as having to wait right?
If you can’t recall reading the statement above, you might as well read this article again 😂😉
Glory to God what I was waiting for just came through. Isn’t God amazing. It wasn’t easy but one thing I learnt is:
“If you can find it in the scripture, then you can have it”
Cause you’d have people in your waiting party talking you down at times, some encouraging you and yet others being indifferent.
What matters is God’s report over that situation and not that of man.
Well, if you’re given the chance of choosing your crew, I’d advise you invite those who’d support you all the way. E get why (take it from someone who’s been there)
Until next time, keep
