Standing in a Holding Pattern

Do you ever feel like you're standing in a holding pattern waiting for something totally amazing to happen but you're just not quiet sure what it is.  Lately I feel like life has been all about waiting patiently to see what God has in store for us.  Sometimes the waiting part seems to take FOREVER.  Derek and I have been playing around with the idea of purchasing our first home but every time we start the process God seems to through us some sign that says, "Nope, not yet! I have bigger and better plans!"

The last few months two verses have been rolling around in my head.  "For I know the plans I have for you," and " I am fearfully and wonderfully made!"  In today's society, and I'm sure in the past too, it's soo easy to get caught up in the things that we don't have and can't do.  How easy it is to sit and compare our lives to others.  I have found myself jealous of how others seem to have things together while my 5 year plan is well still just a plan.  Maybe we set ourselves up for failure and disappointment when we begin to create our 5/10/15/life-long plans.  Daily I have to remind myself that only God knows my plan and His plan is definitely bigger than my plan.
