    Lovely post, Ellie! So true! I find I have a hard time waiting and being content with what I have/what’s going on at this moment.

    I had the hardest time in my “waiting” period. I wanted so bad to complete high school and get married right away. Little did I know it would be a 5 year wait. I became so discontent I dated anyone who halfway showed interest, and had my heart broken so many times! When i finally came to a place where i just told God “i will be content with where i am and enjoy where i am” that i actually met my husband. I wasnt looking, i was enjoying life. I was enjoying my family, my freedom to do things how I wanted when I wanted, I enjoyed my talents and hobbies, and along he came. Little did I know we had been around each other almost our whole lives, but because I was so discontent with waiting God kind of “hid” us from each other. The waiting is so hard, but take it from someone who has been through this, IT IS ALL WORTH IT! Do all you can to enjoy where you are now, and I can almost guarantee you your spouse or your job or whatever you are waiting for will show up. 😊

    Why is it strikes deeply? I also have this “waiting” thing in my life. Good thing I read your post. It reminds me Jeremiah 29:11 that God has a plan to each one of us. Such a great, awesome post. Its worth reading.

    Hey, Ellie! These words were exactly what I needed to read right now. I feel like my whole life I was in this stage of waiting, waiting to finish school, waiting to move to another city, waiting to get a job and now, waiting to get married, but my life it’s soo good as it is in this moment and I always keep forgetting that, Thank you so much for reminding me that God has a plan for us all and everything will work out just the way it needs it to!

    This post reminds me of Proverbs 19:21, “Many are the plans in the mind of man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
    At first, it can sound kind of frustrating, but I think that it’s kind of cool. Like when you’re reading a book and you think you have it all figured out and the author changes everything with one sentence. But you like this ending way better than the one you had imagined.
    Your Author has something pretty awesome planned. So even when you think you have it all figured out, the plot twist of your story will bring you to the very best ending possible.
    Thanks for your encouraging words!!

    Hey, Beautiful! I am in my time of so-called waiting. i am at a difficult age where people think that they are so grown up and ready to date, but we definitely are not. That might just be my opinion, but its hard. My best friends are falling down that rabbit hole, and I almost feel…. left out. Not that I want to date right now, but it doesn’t make it any easier that they don’t share that opinion. I’m wanting to grow up and have so many new experiences, but I want to be a little kid again. It is so confusing! But my real ‘waiting’ problem is that Im still waiting to know who I am. Ive tried piano, gymnastics, coding, dancing….nothing is brightening that spark and guiding me down any kind of path. But I asked our Heavenly Father in faith to help me find myself. Guess what? I was thinking of who I want to be, not who I AM. I am Heavenly Father’s child. When the Holy Ghost delivered that message to me, I was sobbing because I had been touched with The Spirit. EVERYONE READ THIS NOW AND KNOW THAT IT IS TRUE. I bare witness that you are who God has planned you to be and as soon as He needs you to be something different, he will change your point of view and your entire perspective. If someone places a paper in front of you and tells you to write down any and all accomplishments, you write down this, first and foremost: I AM WHO GOD WANTS ME TO BE. I AM LOVED AND CHERISHED BY HEAVENLY FATHER AND HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, AND NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT. I AM GOD’S CHILD. I have repeated that phrase in my mind and out loud many many times, and every time, I know it is true. And it is very true for you as well and I hope that you feel loved. God is always there and loves you more than you could ever imagine. Lots of Love,

    Ellie, after reading this article, I am feeling soo grateful and happy and contended with my life. Your article nearly made me cry. I have started to read the gospel after I started reading your blog. I am sure that after starting this habit I almost always have a great day. I love your blogs, Hopefully you’ll keep writing. Warm wishes.

    It is such a motivating talk to listen. And absolutely, there’s nothing better than encouraging someone who’s in despair and needs help silently.
