Stop Watching the Clock

Do you ever find yourself questioning God’s timing in your life?
I’ve been trying to get my bachelors degree off and on for ten years.

I just submitted my application for graduation.

I’ve never been the person who knew exactly what I wanted to be. I knew I wanted to “change the world” from a very young age but as I got older the vision of what that would look like become blurrier and blurrier. I’ve always been jealous of people who would go into college knowing exactly what they were majoring in, where they were going to work and what they’d do with their lives. I spent the majority of the first few years of my college experience so lost.

I changed my major 5 times.
It went a little something like this: International business, teaching, graphic design, photography, and now what I am actually majoring in- Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice. I’m graduating 6 years past what’s considered normal.

But, I’ve lived a lot of life between when I first applied to MSU in 2008, to where I am now. I’ve been molded into the woman I am today, the woman who knows mostly what she’s doing and where she’s headed. That wouldn’t have happened without time & finally letting God have control.

It’s all in His timing. If you’re struggling with finishing college while being a mom, or trying to quit that 9-5 and chase your dreams, keep on keepin’ on. It’s not going to be easy and it may not happen in the time frame you had in mind.

I’m a firm believer that the time limits we set on ourselves are often unreasonable and man-made.

I think, maybe, we need to stop glancing at our watches and look to our Savior. 

“A person’s heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps”

Provers 16:9
