It’s so easy to despair and give up when things are not going the way you want. It’s harder still when life seems to be going well for everyone else expect for you. I for one know what it is to wait,to hope and to be disappointed, but in all my challenges I have learnt that God is good and that HE REIGNS. He is in control and no matter how much I kick and fuss, ultimately He has the final say. He has a plan and purpose for me, a plan that is good and peculiar to me, and me alone.
And so I have stopped measuring my life and successes against that of others because God’s blueprint for my life is not similar to that of anyone. I have also learnt to be patient and submit myself to His will and clock for I know He loves me and is watching over me.
For everything there is an appointed time, and an appropriate time for every activity on earth ( Ecclesiastes 3:1)
•Your friend graduated at 22, and at 25 you still struggling to get admission into university for a 1st Degree! Cool down!
•Your friend got a good job immediately after high school, you are still struggling to get one even after varsity. Calm down!
•Your friends are getting married, and all the guys/girls coming your way seem to just want a fling, Relax Dear!
When your friends are getting things you think you deserve, do not despair, remain focused.
But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24)
Life isn’t a race with someone else, the first to DEPART is not always the first to ARRIVE.
I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all (Ecclesiastes 9:11)
God is Sovereign and his timing is always PERFECT, there are no rules that state that by a certain age you should have certain things, move at your own pace!!
Let go [of your concerns]! Then you will know that I am God. I rule the nations. I rule the earth.
GOD REIGNS, EXPRESS YOURSELF!!
