Hi Team –
I just had coffee/breakfast with some good friends of mine. I was sharing with them kind of where I am in life and it inspired me to write it out for you. This is just me rambling some thoughts so I hope it make sense. As many of you know I’m not working right now. I’m in a weird transitional time period where I am trying to figure out my next move and what that looks like.
This time period can be hard because society teaches that at age 25 you should have it all together… that you should be seriously dating/married, that you should maybe be pregnant, and that you should be moving up in your career/ job. I’m here to tell you that THE WORLDS TIMELINE IS WRONG. Yall… we are TWENTY FIVE. We have so much more life to live and The Lord is not done with us yet. I think we get so caught up in the timelines that the world places on us that we constantly walk around bearing the weight of not meeting those timelines. This causes anxiety and fear to control the way that we live. Sometimes living outside of those timelines but in the will of God brings the most peaceful, joyful season of life.
PRO TIP: Something that helps remind me of Gods faithfulness is thinking back through all of the seasons of life that I have been through. I think back to all of the tough decisions that lead me here, from high school, college, breakups, meeting my husband, graduating college, and working in Corporate America. Through all of the decisions, big and small, that I made during those times God did not fail me once and I know that he isn’t going to start now. I hope that brings you as much peace as it brings me.
I don’t know where your are in the worlds timeline but I do know that you are right where you need to be according to Gods timeline. You might be hurting, you might be yearning for more, you might be so happy, or you might be confused or lost… I don’t know. I have good days and I have bad days where I feel like I’m being judged for not following the worlds timeline of what I should be doing. BUT I can feel The Lords peace in this weird period of my life, like never before, and I want you to feel it too.
My goal of this post is to encourage you to be bold in the person you are created to be and to not be afraid to blaze your own trail. What’s driving the decisions that you make? Is it feeling that you “should be” doing this or that because the world or your friend group says so? I hope not. Whatever circumstance/ situation you are in, let The Lord freaking use it and enjoy it because as cheesy as it is we don’t get these times back.
“Faith never knows where it is being lead, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.”
