His Timing


His timing is perfect. We say that all the time. To live it is another story.

I have had two what I consider major life dealings wake me up to His timing recently.  I pressed for them. Prayed for them. Yet still God said not yet.
 
In both situations, once I walked away from the emotion I had about His decision, I could see clearly why God was saying "not yet". 

Getting God's not right now isn't easy. When I read yesterday's Jesus Calling it was like all the words in the book moved around to form this message just for me. "Much, much stress results from your wanting to make things happen before their times come."  Hi Niecy. 
 
I have really been focusing on the "moment by moment" statement.  I'm a big picture kind of gal.  Give me a glimmer of hope, and I'll dream up the whole moon and stars, heaven and earth.  There's nothing wrong with having big hope, only when you allow the moments to disappoint you when they don't add up to the big dream.  This moment by moment business takes choosing in every moment to be grateful for that moment. To not constantly be trying to figure out what that moment means in the grand scheme of things. To just be grateful for the moment. The simple small moment.
 
With this I am gaining new hope and excitement to see what God does once He strings all these moments together.  I'm excited for this new perspective along the journey.  Life is such a great teacher.

  1. I can certainly relate to this post. There are so many things I want to accomplish. I have my own 5 year plan but I'm learning that my plan doesn't always line up with God's plan. Of course, I'd rather go with His, but I'm a right now type of person. I'm working on that...lol. My boyfriend always reminds me that I stress and worry too much and the biggest reason and that I don't rest in God. I know He has it all under control and if I just follow His lead all will be well. I'm learning patience and I don't want to rush something that will later fall apart because I wasn't ready or because it wasn't in God's plan for it to happen. ❤︎

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
