In life there are moments when trusting God’s timing is difficult. Saying- Why can’t It just happen now. I believe everything happens for a reason. No matter what may go through. God is always right by your side. In a time so riddled with uncertainty, something we can always be sure of is when life happens when it is meant to. We often find that life is more fulfilling when we accept God a realize the creator’s time is best.
Yes. I had a horrible childhood, and I was so angry and depressed for years and years. But I think God was right by me side and he was watching over me. To keep me from commenting suicide or causing harm to myself. The trials that I have went through made me the strong and happy person I am today. I know God has an amazing plan for my life.
We will all be subject to times where our faith will be tested. In a world that’s obsessed with highlighting evil achievements and forgetting the good ones, It’s easy for people to feel like we’ve been left out and the media has done nothing to help, social media has done nothing to help our feeling either. Setting us up to feel drained physically and emotionally. As well as a feeling that we have to ”keep up with the Jones’s. I’m sure many people can testify to feeling like God hasn’t heard our requests, but the truth is if He is making us wait, it’s only a matter of time before he comes through. I prayed for years for God to save my marriage, I even got to the point of telling him if he could not save it, then end it. Doubting whether he was even listening. He Was, my marriage is better now that ever before. One thing you can be sure of, he is listening, and working in the background for an amazing outcome.
Sadly we all have triggers when someone says something that ticks you off or hits you the wrong way. We need to identify what triggers us, as long as we keep giving in to them we will never be at peace.
God tells us that He has a plan for us and that prosperity will be ours and that we will never be in harm’s way as long as He is there. In order to truly trust God, separate yourself from anything that threatens your relationship with God. Whether it’s a certain group of friends, social media, or a television program. Anything that stirs up any negative feelings within you shouldn’t be part of your life. However, do not try to stop all these things at once.
Acknowledge your triggers and work on eliminating certain emotions over a period of time. These changes don’t happen overnight. So, don’t be too hard on yourself.
Don’t forget to pray- Prayer is a great way to solidify your relationship with God. Sometimes it’s not about planning what to say but instead, it’s about telling God what’s on your mind. There’s a lot of power behind speaking you prayers so your ears can hear what your saying.
1 Chronicles 16:11 encourages us to look to God for strength and to seek His face always. Whether in good times or not. And helps you realize God is in control. God is always ready to listen to what you have to say. Sometimes we try to be our own God but when push comes to shove we do not have the power.
As you wait for God’s timing don’t forget to remind yourself of God’s promises and reflect on the times when your prayer have been answered. If he’s done it before, He can do it again.
This is a difficult one, but stop acting on impulse, nothing will get all up in your feelings like acting on impulse. In a moment, it may seem like you are doing the right thing but don’t forget to question your actions.
I think of these things before I speak:
It is true?
Is it good?
Is it kind?
Is it useful?
Is it necessary?
Is the answer is you to these things go ahead and speak. If it’s not keep your thoughts to yourself a d don’t speak it out.
Proverbs 15:28 compares an individual without self-control to a city that’s been destroyed and left without walls. If you do things in haste you won’t get the outcome you truly desire and you’ll only have yourself to blame.
Wait for God’s timing is difficult but, it is worth the wait.
