Amen and amen!
First, I never finished watching Finding Nemo, and so after reading this post, I definitely want to watch it soon!
Second, it's so interesting to hear what you were going through, as I have been going through something similar myself. While reading your post, I thought about how I recently got a break though, and naturally, I was happy and I was jumping for joy and praising God. However, I thought about what Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:11, "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content." And therefore, I began to evaluate my own heart and I realized how even if I didn't get this break through, that I need to always be content, because I'm not entitled to anything.
But with that said, one thing that I also realized when reflecting on the verse you shared, Psalms 37:4. The reason why I felt so stagnant was because I kept praying the wrong prayer. I kept praying, "God please let this opportunity work out." Rather than, "God, if this is in your will then let it be done, and it if it's not, then please close the door." So every time a door was closed, I was like, "why God, why?!?!" I realized that when I truly prayed that prayer and surrendered, that my heart began to be better aligned with God's heart and therefore, just like is Psalms 37:4, He will give you the desires of your heart.
Thanks for another great post, Mags! :)
