Emily’s Nuggets: A Nibble Of Encouragement – Eventually?

I’m not even really sure what the situation was that was going on in our lives at the time, but I haven’t forgotten the conversation my husband and I had. I was sitting in the chair and as he walked by, he said something along the lines of, “Don’t worry about it. It’ll all get better eventually.” And my immediate response came in a mock whiny voice, “But how long does ‘eventually’ taaaaaakkkkkkeeee???”

I’ve thought back on that question several times, because although I asked it in silliness, I honestly wanted to know. I have lots of “eventuallies” in my life and I know that I’m not the only one. So while you’re waiting on your eventually to come to pass and wondering how long eventually will take (just like I am), I leave you with a couple of verses to keep in mind. And don’t worry-It’ll all get better eventually.

“Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!”- Psalm 27:14

“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
