in regards to haven’t met you yet…

February 10, 2010

in an earlier post i wrote about my frustration the past few years with seeing most of my friends falling in love, getting married, and now having kids.  i look back on the kids i graduated with and i feel like a good majority are in this phase of life, and a part of me feels like im stuck falling behind. i’ve wondered when will it finally be my time to be happy?  when will it be my time to start a family?  well anyways, even through the frustration i’ve continued to pray and have continued to trust in God’s plan for my life.  i was emptying my book boxes one day and was sitting down and for some reason i felt like i needed to read boy meets girl by joshua harris.  i read this book many years ago, however after rereading it i knew that it was God working in me.  two quotes that i had highlighted before but never fully took them to heart, i now understood. it was like i was reading it for the first time, funny how growing up makes you see things differently…

“Maybe you wish your Prince or Princess would have arrived by now. But God is right on schedule. He knows exactly what He’s doing. He sees you right where you are. He hasn’t forgotten you. He hasn’t overlooked you. The circumstances you’re going through–no matter how difficult–are part of the very happy ending He has planned.”

“Real love is always fated. It has been arranged before time. It is the most meticulously prepared of coincidences. And fate, of course, is simply a secular term for the will of God, and coincidence for his grace.”

God is good.  His love for me is endless.  this was just what i needed to remember that i’m right where i need to be  ♥
