Your breakthrough is coming, something we’ve all heard in church, and even from motivational speakers.
Some of us doubt if breakthrough will ever come, and some of us know it can happen, we just want it to come now. However, the truth is there is no timeline when waiting for breakthrough!
Revelation For Breakthrough
In September of 2008, we planned a Princess Party for our daughter. Even though, we had little finances to throw a big party. At the time our daughter, Trinity, was into being a princess. She loved being pampered, and served. And at 22 she still loves to be pampered!
In wanting to put on the best princess party ever with limited funds, we decided instead of focusing on what we didn’t have, we focused on what we did have. We put our thinking caps on and wrote a list of what we would need to pull this party off.
From the invitations, to decorations, who could make a cake instead of ordering one, instead of hiring manicurist we called on some friends and family to assist, and we made curtains out of plastic table cloths.
Before you knew it, we had the entire party covered with all the resources that were available to us.
Now this blog isn’t about pulling off the princess party; it’s about waiting patiently on our breakthrough even in the midst of walking through tough times.
While one of our friends dropped off ice cream and a gift for Trinity, they left a card for us personally.
After the party, we reflected on how happy we made our daughter. All it took was a little imagination and some great friends. And it was at that moment, we decided to read the card our friends gave us.
When we opened the card, there was a $100 with a hand-written note. They told us that God instructed them to sow a $100 breakthrough seed into our lives. They went on to express their love, and that they were standing with us for breakthrough.
Anyone reading that of course would cheer us on, yeah! Breakthrough is coming! However, if you look a little closer to the card, you will notice it was written in September 2008. Here it is 15 years later, and we’re witnessing the specific breakthrough we’ve been waiting for!
Waiting On Breakthrough
Sometimes we go to church, we get a good word, or we hear something that sounds good, then we plan our whole life based on that one word. We start making radical changes without seeking God for wisdom and letting the Holy Spirit lead us.
For us, when we read the card, we knew God was speaking to us directly. And the seed our precious friends, Kelly and Oliver sowed, was a confirmation that our breakthrough was coming; as that was a seed for what was to come.
The lesson we wrote in our journal was that it was a seed. A seed to be nurtured, planted, and cared for, even in stormy weather conditions or record breaking heat. We saw that $100 as a seed we needed to nurture, by continuing to seek God and allow the Holy Spirit to direct our steps.
Seven years later when we started this blog Kelly was one of the first people to post her support on our Facebook page. That didn’t surprise us, because seven years prior to that she sowed into our breakthrough season. Here it is 15 years later we continue to see breakthrough in so many areas of our lives that was tied to that one seed.
Once we make up in our own heart and mind that we’re going to wait on God for breakthrough, it will remove the timelines we have in our mind.
No matter where you are right now, know that your breakthrough is coming. It may not come in the timeframe you want, but it will come.
Don’t put God in a box to the timing, as His ways and thoughts are higher than ours.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.” ~ Isaiah 55:8 (NLT)
You see, if you’re insistent on your breakthrough coming a certain way, and within a certain period of time, chances are, you’ll miss what God has for you.
Romans 8:25 says tells us to wait for the hope we have not seen with patience and composure. Believe us when we say, we know personally how hard this is when life is weighing you down.
“But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure.” ~ Romans 8:25 (AMPC)
However, we also know how overwhelming it is to experience what God does in the waiting!
In The End
That $100 seed sown into our breakthrough was a starting point. As we sought God right where we were, we experienced breakthroughs in different areas of our life. Over time, we continued to see more breakthroughs in other areas on deeper levels.
The key is, we didn’t stop tilling the ground because we knew there would be a harvest if we didn’t give up.
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” ~ Galatians 6:9 (NKJV)
A harvest is ready for you friends, but a seed must be planted first!
Be encouraged, no matter what you’re waiting on to manifest in your life, breakthrough is coming if you faint not.
