Preparing not Waiting: what it's all about

What is this blog all about?

     Preparing not waiting; when I first came up with the title it referred more to my missionary and how I'm waiting with out you know, waiting. 
As the months have gone by I've realized that it was inspired. 

It's not about waiting for a missionary.
It's about preparing for my future spouse, whoever he may be.

It's not about waiting for opportunities of service to come my way.
It's about seeking and preparing myself to recognize when and where service is needed.

It's not about waiting for an answer.
It's about preparing myself to be spiritually ready to receive the right answer.

It's not about waiting for someone to make the choice for me,
It's about preparing to make the right decision on my own.

It's not about waiting for my troubles and trials to pass by.
It's about preparing for trials to come my way so I may endure them well.

It's not about waiting to be picked for the right team. 
It's about preparing myself to always play on the right team even if the other team looks quite enticing.

It's not about waiting for the bridegroom to come.
I'ts about being prepared for the bridegroom to come. (The Parable of the Ten Virgins)

It's not about waiting for Christ to knock on the door. 
It's about preparing to let Christ in before he even has to knock. 

It's not about waiting till the day your forever starts to begin preparation.
It's about being prepared before,
being prepared now,
and being prepared after.

Enduring Well. 

Always Preparing never Waiting
