You Aren't Allowed to Wait

  You aren’t allowed to wait until God comes to you

and says, “I am.”

  A God who confirms his strengths

is ridiculous.

  You must know that God blows through you

from the start,

  and when your heart burns within and doesn’t betray you,

then we know that God is working within.
