Life is Short Eat Your Greens First

I'm a dessert girl. My life motto is, "Life is short, eat dessert first." Well, not my life motto per se, but at least my motto when it comes to, well...dessert.

So often my God has another idea. A better idea, I'm loathe to admit. God says, "Eat those greens, girl."

"Finish your outdoor work and get your fields ready; after that, build your house." ~Proverbs 24:27

There see, He just said, "Eat those greens, girl," basically. Waiting is difficult. Waiting when you have something wonderful in front of you {that proverbial house or a piece of chocolate cheesecake} is even more difficult. We must be faithful to our God. We must be patient, steady, trusting. We must be willing to do the hard heart-work God asks us to do. He calls us to prepare our fields, to eat our greens, to grow up.
  
"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain." ~Psalm 127:1 

If you eat the greens, the dessert tastes sweeter. And being a dessert girl, I'm all for that.

This catchy song goes so well with this....
