I'm a firm believer that there is a time for everything.
If I relied on my time for everything all of my plans would fail. Ironically, all of MY plans have failed. Hm, imagine that?
If I'm being honest, I am VERY impatient. Can you relate? It's either my way or the highway...my time or we ain't doing it. Sounds like you too?
What I've come to learn is that my plans will always fail when God isn't at the center. Years ago, when I was working a job that made me feel less than I knew I shouldn't have taken that job. I only took that job because I thought the pay was decent. BUT when I went in to interview I felt a strange vibe in the office. It was almost as if the Holy Spirit was warning me to not take this job and that I needed to abort mission! MAYDAY MAYDAY!!
That's literally how I felt.
But I interviewed well and I eventually got the job.
I could not stand that job!
It was honestly the worst job of my entire life. But because I was being greedy and I wanted a salary paying job, I took it.
Every day I prayed over the office, and sometimes I would go into the bathroom to pray. The energy in that office was so dark that it weighed down on me heavily.
Long story short, they fired me. A bittersweet moment, but oh well. I was free.
Or so I thought.
I still felt guilty about being fired. I still felt like they should have treated me better and owed me a REAL explanation as to why they fired me. They fired me right on the spot too--haha...so savage.
But God didn't waste any time. He told me to get into His word and to familiarize myself with scripture. He led me to research women's ministries and how to lead a ministry. Eventually, I felt a tug on my heart to write a devotional, so I did. I also created a business outline of what I wanted this ministry to look like.
A year went by and I never thought about the devotional I wrote, the business outline, or God's plan. Fast forward to April 2020 is when I felt the tug on my heart to remove all of the distractions and to focus on God. I left the guy I was talking to and I became heavily devoted to God's word. One thing led to another and FLOURISHING Ministries LLC was birthed.
On June 25th, 2020 I launched my ministry and I have been extremely happy and so full ever since!
God has a plan for every one of us. His plans for us all look different, but the result is always the same...to fulfill HIS WILL. We are all different parts of the body and all serve different purposes, but all together we serve the Lord.
If you're trusting God with something, continue to wait. But wait with expectancy that His will is going to come to pass.
Remember this, "God's plan and timing is always far more promising than our plan and our time." --Daisy
Isaiah 40:31- But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.
