This week I am really concentrating on knowing that everything happens in God's timing for my life. I am in the process of going back to nursing school this spring and am having a hard time deciding which program is best for me. I feel so grateful to have been given the opportunity to start sooner then I had expected and I trust that God had his hand in that for me! I was in such a rush to get back to school but as soon as I let my own vision go and let God take control and trusted that he would allow me to do it when the time was right everything began to fall into place! I have been praying daily to make the decision because I want to make the right one! God's timing is always perfect and I know that no matter what my decision is God already knows that what I choose is best.
Life is funny sometimes and it is not until later when your life falls into place that you can look back and really appreciate everything that has happened and thank God for everything you have gone through. As in the quote at the bottom of this post God will never put you through anything that you can't handle. You may not know it at the time and really question why it is happening but after you move on and get through it you realize why you were put in such situations and how much better of a person you are after the fact.
Timing is something that i'm sure like a lot of other people I have always struggled with. I will admit in the past I wanted things to happen at certain times and how I envisioned them to happen and i didn't want anything to screw it up. I was very selfish and didn't think about the consequences of how that affected my life as well as others, and trust me in the end it came back to bite me when everything fell apart! What I now know is how perfect God's timing is and how much trust I have placed in him because I know that he is going to make everything happen at the right time when it is suppose to happen!
My advice to anyone that is going through a rough time or really questioning if they are in the right career/relationship/location is to put your faith in God and know that his timing is perfect for your life. You may not know it right now but continue working towards your goals and know that when the time is right God will bless you more then you could ever imagine. The times that your life seems like its over and nothing is going right is when God is working the hardest for you. Keep pushing and trusting that God has an amazing plan for you!! So stop over thinking everything.. and start trusting that God will do great things for you when the time is right!
