In God’s perfect time

I don’t know how this post is going to start or end for that matter…. I just had an idea pop into my head while cleaning the kitchen…

I’m not sure how to start it… I know, what I want to say, but I don’t know how to say it… Don’t you hate when that happens!

Let’s start with a song…

God’s perect time… I’m going to try to tie in the topic of God’s perfect time and what I feel…

I don’t know how to start, so I’m going to just start off with sharing a little of my testimony…

I prayed for 7 years that my family would come back to church and there was a period that I got mad and frustrated at life and with God…. Because I wanted them to come back right then, but nothing happened… weeks turned into months and months into years and still nothing…. And so, I just kinda was like “Okay, obviously if God wanted them to come back they would have came back by now…” .

And I don’t really know when my mindset changed, but I know it changed. God changed my view and thinking and then I felt peace about the situation. Yes, I was still going to church alone and nothing was changing, but I was okay with that… Why was I okay with it?? Because I knew God would bring them back in his perfect time. Did that mean I stopped praying and believing God to do the work? No…. I actually buckled down and prayed even more… And my parents didn’t come back to church when I wanted them too, it was actually a few years later, but they came back and that’s what counts. Did I want to throw in the towel? More times than I want to admit, but just because you don’t see any results or see the results you want to see does not give you the right to throw in the towel… You have to keep praying for that person/situation/problem and waiting for God’s perfect timing to show up.

Yes, it’s not easy and yes it’s frustrating when you literally see no progress at all…. but you don’t know what your prayers are doing under the surface. You don’t know what kind of angles you are dispatching when you pray. One thing I’ve learned over the years is…. Every. Single. Prayer. Is. Heard. It doesn’t matter if you feel like your prayers are hitting the wall at hitting you right back in the face, they are moving mountains you can’t see. Keep praying… Keep being a Godly example…

A lot of people say “I’ve failed to many times”... You know what… The only time you have failed is when you quit… Have you quit? Have you given completely up on what you’ve been praying for? If so, then yes, you have failed… But if you still have faith and you still have a fight left in you to keep fighting then you have not failed, you are learning and growing. You might have fallen or messed up, but that doesn’t mean you have failed… So stop letting the devil tell you that you are a failure and you can’t change anything, because that’s a lie from Hell. The lies of the devil only have power over you if you believe them…

๐ŸŽถ”Who’s report will you believe, we shall believe the report of the Lord” ๐ŸŽถ

So, what I was trying to get across was… Don’t give up on a hope or promise you have just because it isn’t happening as fast as you want it to… It may take 20 more years, but as long as it happens, does it matter how long it takes? I waited 7 years and I would’ve wait 7 more (with God’s help) if need be, but as long as you keep praying that’s all that matters. You have to claim it, before you even see any signs of it being fulfilled.

Just start praising and thanking God for whatever you’re praying for and you’ll be surprised by what happens. Don’t take my word for it, try it out yourself!!

God’s timing is always better than ours… “In God’s perfect time. He’s never been late” …..

Don’t give up… whoever this was for…

God Bless….

  1. V, this is one of the best posts you have written! I’m so proud of you! I’ve seen few young people who kept living for God and went to church by themselves. Without a parent or sibling. You are so strong! And a living testimony of that scripture, “not by might, nor by power, but by HIS spirit! It was Jesus that kept you from throwing in the towel. I know this is going to help someone. It blessed me! I’m still waiting for all my family to come in, but come in they SHALL! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ

    1. Awwe, thank you dear friend!

      All glory to God… I don’t deserve any of it… you’re right, it was 100% Jesus who kept me from throwing in the towel… I told Him several times “that’s it, I’m done!” and He would softly say “No, you’re not… just get up and keep going”….

      I’m glad it helped you! I pray it helps others as well…๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

      YES! Claim it before you see it, that’s how it happens!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
