Trust the timing of your life.



Timing is everything and every season serves a purpose. When we are excited about something, sometimes we get ahead of ourselves and get frustrated when things aren’t happening on our timeline. To be honest, if you rush the timing of your life, you then start to feel like you are behind schedule. But really, you are only behind schedule of your expectations, not your life. We want to encourage you to keep believing that you are right on time. If it is meant to happen for you, it will happen for you - at the right time, in the right season.


There have been times we were presented with a great opportunities, but it wasn’t the right time. We are certain that no missed opportunity was meant for us. Whether that was a business deal, a connection, a friendship, a relationship, a job, etc. One of the challenges in this season is to be patient with yourself. It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment of what others are doing or how far others have come and not realizing that you have come so far too! You cannot connect the dots by looking forward, we can only connect the dots when we look backwards. So, you have to trust that those dots will somehow connect. That is when you will realize the delays were never random. Even if you are not where you want to be yet, no missed opportunity was meant for you. What’s meant for you will always be for you.


Trust the timing of your life. Always be grateful for the closed doors, detours and road blocks that prevented you from paths and places not meant for you and lead you to something better.


Continue to be patient with yourself, and remember that big things are achieved not all at once, but one day at a time. Instead of thinking that time is passing you by, think of it as you are one step closer or one day closer to seeing your dreams come to pass. God’s timing is perfect. The more you have to wait for something, the more you tend to appreciate it when it arrives.


Sometimes God holds you back temporarily until the road is safe and clear to continue. Let’s be thankful for that. Having the faith in God includes having faith in his timing, what is meant for you will not pass you by!
