Your Time Will Come

I usually do not do this, but tonight I have decided to speak my truth. As a senior in college, I often find myself asking, “When will my time come?”

I have recently caught myself constantly scrolling through social media envying those who are accepting jobs, getting engaged, starting their own business, etc. I would seriously get so bitter about my life not being like people on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. I found myself doing this again earlier today and decided that I needed to have a little chat with God about this jealousy because this is not the way I should be living.

As I talked with God, He revealed Ecclesiastes 3:1 NLT, which reads, “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.” This verse spoke volumes to me as I realized that I made my future an idol. By comparing my journey to others, I was telling God that I was not trusting in His plan for me and that what He was doing in my life was not good enough. After I came to this realization, I thought to myself, “Who am I to tell God His timing is not good enough?” I then prayed that God would instill patience in me. In this season in my life, it is so easy to become impatient or anxious about what is going to happen next in my life. However, I have to turn that fear and anxiety into trust and faith in the Lord’s will for me.

I was not going to share this tonight, but I felt moved to do so because I know this is something that a lot of us struggle with. With that said, for the person reading this who is struggling with patience, envy, or anxiety about the future, you are not alone. Just remember that God has a special plan for your life that is bigger than anything  you could ever imagine for yourself. Your time will come! It might not be when you want it, but I promise you God will deliver whatever it is when He sees fit.

So the next time you find yourself pressed about not being where you think you should be, remove yourself from situations that cause those feelings and seek the word of God to find peace in your journey.

Stay blessed my loves!

XOXO,

Christen M.

    Hi Christen!
    Awesome post!! I’m so proud of the woman you have become. I pray you continue to share truth when you are moved to share. There is so much wisdom, vulnerability yet courage in your words. Recognize that you are living in “your time”! It’s not about the arrival but the journey to who/what you are becoming. I love you dearly! Keep writing and sharing niecy.❤️

    Hi Christen, your post is so apt. By some standards, I’m not doing too badly, still, I occasionally find myself going through what you have just described. It is sometimes difficult not to compare or feel that little pang of jealousy but when those moments come, I have learnt to count my blessings and sometimes unplug.

    Thanks for sharing this and for the scripture reference too. Y(our) time will surely come.
