I’m visiting my sister and fam in Waco, and guess what?!
I have FINALLY got a slice of the Thursday Cake from Lula Jane’s in Waco! The cake is revealed on Wednesdays at 3:00pm, and you must call in to reserve your slice to pick up or enjoy dining-in on Thursdays.
Well, it has finally worked out for me! All the times I knew my sister was coming my way or I was headed to Waco, I’d always forget to check on the Thursday Cake or when I did remember to call, the cake was already sold out (it’s that popular).
The kids are on fall break (no school), so yesterday at 3:10pm when my school-pickup alarm went off, I suddenly remembered that the Thursday Cake is posted at 3:00pm. I called, no answer. Called again at 3:11pm and was able to reserve one of the LAST two slices.
Today when I arrived at Lula Jane’s, I was given silver-platter customer service: lovely greeting and Lula Jane herself carefully prepared my cake slice by placing it in my to-go container lined with wax paper and presented the cake to the cashier with a smile.
I thought the cake was going to be Saran-wrapped just waiting for me to pick up. No, the entire cake, or what was left of it, was sitting on the counter in all its glory giving me a giddy feeling inside! A pumpkin spiced flavored cake with oatmeal streusel. Y’all know I love fall, so this cake was on time! I could see the cake and knew a part of it was mine!
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Just as I have waited on the Thursday Cake, be encouraged in your Not Yet Moments. Every blessing and breakthrough that you have received so far has been right on time, God’s time.
Isn’t His timing always the best and well worth the wait?
I’m believing that your name, unbeknownst to you, is being favorably spoken about in places that will take you to the next level; that the baby you’re believing for is already in God’s plans – just not yet; that the diagnosis or unfavorable report is God’s way of using you as a living testimony; and that ANY blessing or breakthrough you are needing and believing for will happen and is simply being orchestrated by His hands behind the scenes.
Did she say “simply”? YES!
Be reminded of Isaiah 55:8-9: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Know that your Not Yet Moments are well worth the wait.
