Wednesday's Words

Hey friends!

This verse is one that I feel the need to constantly remind myself of.  Yes, I am a planner and I'm not a very patient person.  When I have my mind made up, I want things to happen efficiently and as quickly as possible.  I am constantly struggling to face the fact that God's timing and my timing aren't always the same.  And on top of that, His timing is always better than mine.  I hope one day I won't have to keep talking about my inability to give God total control, but right now it continues to be my biggest struggle.  Just when I think I've gotten better I catch myself in circumstances that make me go back to clinging for control.

As I said earlier, Chris' baseball season hasn't gotten off to the start we hoped for.  Although his last start was really good, the first month of the season wasn't a good one on the mound.  When baseball isn't going as hoped is one of those times when I begin to struggle to fight for control.  No matter how much I want to, I literally have zero control over what happens on the baseball field.  If I did, Chris would throw a no-hitter every game.  It is just another way that God is using Minor League baseball life to shape me into a more obedient follower.  

So on this Wednesday, I am resting in the truth that I in fact do not have control but that is more than okay.  It is perfect because I serve a God that has perfect timing and makes everything beautiful in a way only He can.  And praise Him that it isn't up to my inadequate self.  

What are some verses that help you get through the week?


  1. My boyfriend and I were JUST talking about God's timing the other day. It is so amazing to look back and realize certain things happened at the perfect time, even if we couldn't see it then. Love this verse, you are such an encouragement!!
