Hemmed In

Have you ever had one of those 'blah' days?   The ones with the uncomfortable, unpleasant, unidentifiable sort of a nagging?  Or maybe it's a longing.  I'm not sure.

Life is basically good.  :)  I'm low maintenance.  I don't require anything.  I'm typically an optimist and I see hope and promise; I find the silver lining.  Oh, I can think of a few things that are needing to be done, and I can think of a few things that are truly bothering me and causing me some trouble, but they aren't earth shattering, and I know I'll get beyond, blah, blah, blah.  I can not link this uneasy feeling to any one thing.  None of the specifics seem to be the real source of the turbulence.

I am learning and growing.  I am planning and dreaming.  What am I missing here?  Anything?

I have never been a great sit-and-waiter.  I am a doer.  When things need to be done I would just as soon get them done.  This time, however, I can't seem to gain any control over any of it.  I'm not even exactly sure what 'it' is!  Everything is in someone else's hands, and I can't muscle my way in or through anything, so I'm sidelined.  I'm ready, but held back.

Whoa, girl.   Whoa......

"Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near." ~ James 5:7&8
