A Faith Story

Timing is Everything

Sometimes it takes a concerted effort to remind myself that the original lie is still a lie; that God is not holding out on me. I have to consciously remember the truth remains that the timing God has for my life is not based on those around me. It’s not based on a societal norm. It’s not based on my plans or my ideas. And that fact is not a sad reality.

The truth is that God has a plan better than mine, a timeline that will not only prove to be a blessing in my life, but by His grace be impactful to people I might not even know. The ripples which flow out from the events of my life, and sometimes even those resulting from the waiting, have a way of bringing His glory and drawing me closer to Jesus than any of the easy and speedy paths I might craft for myself.

So as I sit here in the midst of the temptation to feel sorry for myself, I choose to say,

“I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.”
-Psalm 130:5
