5 Verses That Reflect God's Timing

Don't feel discouraged when things don't go your way, your time will come.

5 Verses That Reflect God's Timing

Why didn't I get the job?

Why am I not in a relationship?

Why are things not going according to my plan?

Everyone has experienced a feeling of loneliness or defeat. When things don't go our way it's easy to think that we're not enough, or there was something we did wrong. A lot of people have to-do lists, schedules, or detailed plans they live by. But when your future becomes your everything, it can dangerously consume your thoughts.

When we question the current season we're in, we doubt God and his plan for us.

There is so much comfort in knowing that God is in control, but for some people, relinquishing control is tricky business.

Isaiah 40:31

"But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."

Relying on the Lord's timing frees you of worry. Trust in the lord, you will gain strength and understanding.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven."

God wants you to have a job, but maybe you aren't meant to work for that company. Be patient and God will place you in the right position, during your designated season.

Psalms 46:10

"Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"

God is dignified. His plans for you are far better than anything you may have in mind.

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

God formed you in your mother's womb and he knows of all the trials you will endure. But trust that he knows best, and he will change your life.

2 Peter 2:9

"The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance."

God works meticulously and he does not rush. He wants all of his children to have faith in him. His will is to be fulfilled at the right time, for your benefit. Whether you realize immediately, or months later, everything in your life happens for a reason.

Don't stress because you feel that now is not the time for you, God has not forsaken you. Not everything that you want in this life is something you need, nor is it all part of your plan. Live to glorify God, and your life will be blessed.

Trust in the Lord, be patient, and let him take control.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
