A few months back I wrote about how my grandmother gave me a wedding gift and how it triggered all these emotions inside of me because I wasn’t getting married anytime soon. Well, I guess grandma knew better.
I am getting married soon.
About a month and three weeks after that post my boyfriend (now fiance) proposed to me. I know, how could I not have seen it coming? My relationship with my fiance developed pretty quickly. Each week and sometimes within days new revelations and milestones were made. So within those several weeks a lot of things had changed. I had become more emotionally ready with being okay to move forward and we had both agreed that getting married in early 2015 sounded just about right for us. It’s interesting, this whole timing thing. One moment you can feel really lost, confused, or unsure and the next everything seems to be falling perfectly in place.
I’ve been learning a lot about timing lately. Time is not in my hands. I’m not talking about the mere hours and seconds on a clock, but about those moments when things seem to click. When God starts putting things into play, there’s no stopping what He will do and accomplish. In the meantime, when the emotional “a-ha” moments haven’t come yet, I need to be faithful and keep moving forward with the truth He’s already given me so that when the God-moments come, I don’t miss out. There have been situations where I tried to make things work or come up with excuses on why such-and-such thing had to be the right thing. But all those attempts were in vain.
But God’s timing, there’s something special and sweet about it because it can’t be manipulated or forced.
In the meantime, folks, I leave you with this encouragement: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
Don’t give up. Wait for His time.
