At the early stages of adulthood one is faced with many choices. Choices that will impact the rest of your life. You choose the field you desire to go into to. The place you would like to live and start a family with, the person you want to start that family with and so much more.
Not only are these important choices but the timing of each choice becomes a factor you cannot ignore. They go hand in hand. Too early and you are overloaded with responsibility, or too late and you miss your opportunity. Either way you will be tested.
But is there such a thing as perfect timing?
In my experience I can perhaps be the person that makes decisions at a very late stage, an example would be that I decided two days before new year what I would do the following year, it did work out for me and my faith was tested tremendously. Perhaps I am slow to start but I manage to keep going. But in that situation I was fully dependent on God and it should be that way in all circumstances.
While being on a few crossroads and being under a lot of pressure it feels the timing of decision-making is of utmost importance. Trying to calculate an equation that simply cannot be done. So what is there left to do?
“If you knew it was going to work out in the end why did you worry so much?” That is probably the question you will ask yourself at an old age, or once things start to fall in place. We live in a place where we can not only listen to God but speak to Him and gain wisdom. He is always there for us and always has the best interests for us. He wants us to succeed. And if He wants that then why do we still worry? Well we really shouldn’t. But we still do.
It may not turn out the way you envisioned it to be but I guarantee it will be better than you could ever have imagined. Failure and heartbreak is all part of the process. You make mistakes only to learn from them and to teach others not to do the same. You lose someone only to know how important life is and how every second is important.
So try not to freak out at your current situation and remember that all fairy tales have a happy ending, or rather a true story.
