God’s Time

Updated: Aug 19

“All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired.”

Those of you that know me on a personal level know I am a believer in the Lord and that Jesus Christ died for our sins. No, I’m not here to hold a bible study or even persuade you to believe, I’m here to share my experience, strength, and hope, and my faith in God just so happens to be part of my journey and story. Now I would also love to sit here and tell you my opening quote is truth and you all shall be granted all that he or she desires; however it doesn’t work that way. Not in the least bit. What I can tell you is if you look at time as irrelevant, and truth being heard=all asked and desired. There’s our time, then there is God’s time. And if you can accept this will all transpire in God time then, it won’t make the pain instantaneously dissipate; it means he will grant you these things when he KNOWS you are ready. I struggle with this myself, when it comes to my daughter, every single day. I do firmly believe my God wants me to be happy, and he knows nothing would make me happier than to be with my little girl. He tells me, “be patient child, sobriety is just the beginning of gifts to come your way; my time looks very different than the clocks on the walls there on earth”.

1.) Patience

2.) Faith

3.) Trust

4.) Blind faith

5.) Ugly cries

6.) That first deep breath after that ugly cry

7.) Unconditional love

8.) Elise Corinne

9.) Jamie, my wife

10.) My family

Continuing down the wreck less path of mass destruction, or facing everything and rising from the ashes of everything I had burnt to the ground. Maybe God knew I needed a fresh start in order to see the light; he knew he had to break my heart to save my soul, and now it’s my turn to practice patience, help others, and trust in God’s plan and know it for sure won’t happen the way I want it to. It will all happen bigger and better, in his time, on his terms; Amen. And certainly, if no one has told you they love you today. I love you.

Yours truly,


Anna
