God has been teaching me a lot about His perfect timing. This semester is honestly one of the hardest semesters I may ever experience. So many trials have been put before me throughout this entire semester that have been testing my faith and my will to keep going on. Recently, I failed a class for the first time in my life. Never in my life have I gotten a grade below a B-, so to fail, it was something completely new to me. Failing this one class interrupted my entire plan of how my life was going to be. I planned to graduate within the next two years, get a job, live happy. Now I’m set back an entire semester. I wish I could have said that I made it even when I was at my lowest breaking point. Life may have not gone according to my plan, but I’m confident in His perfect timing. He says that I made it.
“Jesus answered, “You don’t understand now what I’m doing, but it will be clear enough to you later.” (John 13:7)
There have been a lot of “why’s” this semester, but through it all He has been molding me and strengthening my faith. It’s not easy to truly trust and surrender your worries and fears to Him, but all of the worries that we have are taken away from the power and overflowing ability that Jesus has to take care of us. He is not “setting us back” to harm us or hurt us or just because He simply doesn’t care for us. It may be a set back in our eyes, but to Him, it’s preparing us for something greater. We must have faith in the One who wants the best for us. If we truly believe and trust in Christ, everything will always turn out according to His plan. His plan for us is more than we could ever imagine it to be. I’m praying that I continue to trust in that promise.
