Getting caught up in waiting...

I don't want to get caught up in the feeling we all get, like: "My life will start when I _______." (insert whatever here)

What I mean is, sometimes we think that until we reach our goals and dreams,
then our life will really start. But, I believe that God wants us to enjoy our lives joyfully and not worry about when things will finally start rolling. For example, an artist isn't an artist when they get signed to a record deal, or when they play in front of millions of people. An artist is an artist because that's who they really are. They're an artist when they're staying up until the wee hours of the morning song writing in their room. They're an artist when they play on the corner of a street, oblivious to the many opinions & thoughts of random people walking in front of them. Getting a record deal doesn't make someone an artist. Why not enjoy the gifts that God has given us now? Why wait?
That's what I'm experiencing right now. I'm waiting for something that may not come until maybe years from now, I don't know. But God does knows, and He knows when the right time will be. Until then, I know that I must do what I have to do
now. I have to stop thinking that my life will finally start when I have finally done what I've wanted to do. I must enjoy living my life for Christ now and seek first the kingdom of God.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God,and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33
