I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

I know I talked about this before but I need to hear myself again!  LOL

I am a very impatient person. That's why when I paint I use acrylics instead of oils, they dry right away, oils take forever. I am an instant gratification person, that's why my hips are full of potato chip fat!  No time to think about consequences, I want that potato chip (or a hundred of them) and I want them NOW!
The bible tells us all over the place to Wait, to Rest, to Trust.  But those of us who are impatient try to coax God to hurry it up!  My dream is to have a home in the country with an art studio (and a pole barn for my husband).  I will be 60 in August, and I am in total shock and disbelief about it all, but the fact is, I will be 60 in August. So in my mind I have, at the most, 20 years left to create. And I NEED MORE ROOM!  I remind God every day of this fact, sometimes not real nicely as I am smashed in a small area trying to do something and things are falling around me. OK, I am not real organized but I will be when I have this huge room all to myself and organization will happen naturally. Ha!
Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Now I am very, very good at leaning on my OWN understanding.  I am a downright expert at figuring out how things should go and be done. Just ask me!  I have to smack myself back into reality and then I remember how God does it sooooo much better than me and in ways I have never thought of . 
That WAITING thing tho, I am just not good at it. 
I know in my heart of hearts, a fantabulous new home will come our way despite all the obstacles. I know that it will happen when I am least expecting it and in miraculous ways that I can't imagine. I know the MY GOD will answer my prayers.  
I just need to be Patient.  I just need to Wait.  I just need to Trust.  And I just need to Rest in the fact that God has big plans for me, plans to prosper me and give me an awesome future.  (EVEN THO I AM GOING TO BE 60, UGH !!!!!)
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jer 29:11
