Can I Have a Timeline?
Sometimes I wish God would give me a timeline!
Wouldn’t it be great to know that in one year you’ll be here, five years from now you can expect this, and in 15 years you will arrive at this destination.
I don’t know about you, but for me the past several years have been filled with a lot of stuff I wasn’t prepared for. Some things were really hard, but there were also amazing moments like my mom being cancer-free and watching my first-born become a teenager.
I think God doesn’t give us a timeline because He wants us to find purpose right where we are. In fact, the Bible says we should “number our days” so that we’ll gain a heart of wisdom.
I’ll always have lists and goals, but I’m learning that my timeline will develop as I go along. I’ll ask God for wisdom and direction, but I won’t always know what’s coming and that’s okay!
