Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Earlier today, I read a passage in the Bible about when the angel appeared to Mary to tell her that she was going to have Jesus. The first that I thought of was the celebration that had to have been going on in heaven. I mean, this moment was going to change everything for the entire world. I thought of how much time had passed for this to come true. God knew that this was the perfect time for this to happen and it made me feel so glad.
You know lately, I have been a little frustrated with my situation. I have been in the UK for longer than I should have and it is just frustrating because I feel so useless and I just want to go home and get my life started. However, this has taken longer than we anticipated and it has left me feeling very weird and just off.
This passage that I read though gave me a little more clarity. God is a God of order and He is certainly well versed with perfect timing. He knows when the right time to do anything is. As I said in a previous post, God is omniscient. He knows everything and He knows when and how everything should happen.
And I know that I need to trust Him.
And I know that I need to be patient.
It hasn’t been easy but I know that God will not lead me down a path that will hurt me. So, I am trying to trust in that.
I just wanted to also encourage you guys. Some times we want things to happen right now or at a particular time and when it doesn’t happen, we feel sad, frustrated, annoyed but God knows best. You know, one person I always think of when it comes to timing is the beautiful Taraji .P. Henson.
You know, I love Taraji very much and she is a wonderful actress. I had known her for a long time and I just always wondered why she hadn’t gone mainstream yet. Why didn’t people know this wonderful woman? She had been in some pretty big movies and she even got nominated for an Oscar on her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, yet it still seemed to take time for her to really pop.
Then Empire came in 2015 and she skyrocketed to the top and I couldn’t be happier. After so many years in the business, she was on everyone’s lips. I am sure that over the years, there were moments where she wondered when it was going to happen big for her and I believe that God was just preparing her and teaching her life skills that she needed for this moment and right now, the sky is just her starting point.
So, we have to trust God because He knows everything and He won’t lead us astray. Don’t worry and don’t fear. This is something I am trying my hardest to do as well because I truly believe that God knows what He is doing and if you ever feel doubt or unbelief, ask Him to help you through that. He knows we are not perfect and He is here to help us all the way. All we need to is ask.
