Today I am linking up with the Blessed Is She Thursday Link-Up along with my 31 Days of Writing and the topic is GOD’S TIMING.
Everyone LOVES to talk about “God’s Timing.” My entire life I have heard the famous saying, “If you plan, God laughs.” And yes God must laugh at me A LOT. I think it’s really easy for people to “blame God” when things don’t go the way they want it to.
I know I have had my fair share of arguments with God in my head. There are so many things – Jobs, Love, Education, Relationships, friends, etc.
Growing up I was always the “goodie too shoes” type person. I always did all of my homework, I got excellent grades, I never caused trouble and was good in school, went to church, participated in community service and church events, went to college, and graduated with a degree. I did everything right.
So why did God make my life so difficult? Why did my father have to pass away when I was only 8 years old and leave my mom to raise my sister and I by herself? Why was I still single and alone in my late 20s? Why couldn’t I get a good job with good benefits? Why did he keep sending me crappy jobs with no benefits that I kept getting laid off from?
In the end I have no idea why the things that have happenned in my life have happened. Looking back even though I don’t always agree with the out comes I do understand that everything happens for a reason. I know I have learned and grown from the different situations and tragedies that have come my way. The struggles I’ve had have made me a better person even though I haven’t always agreed with them all.
