Don't Ever Let God's Timing Fool You

by Linda B Hurd, November 30, 2020

We made it through another month of 2020! I am happy to say that I am still sane and in good health. This month I have learned to sit within the stillness of uncertainty with a clear mind.

I have had quite a few moments of quiet time throughout November to not fill my mind with thoughts as I just inhale and exhale freely. The entire house would be silent, and my son would be asleep while my husband is at work. I would turn the ringer of the phone off and close my eyes. The feelings of worry and anxiousness would release. There were moments of stillness that I would just cry without a wondering mind as I would just pray to God. 

The bible verse of this month was Proverbs 16:9 KJV

 "A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps."

I have been a serial planner since I was a teenager. I was obsessed with having my entire day planned out an entire week in advance, if possible, in my planner. It’s a sense of control and being on top of things that makes me feel lighter. I have been guilty of pre-planning my entire life as much as possible, which has allowed God to humble me in many ways and on a few occasions. I have even shared with a few close friends and my husband how God laughed at my master plans that I thought I had down pack. What I have learned to do is confined in the Lord in every area of my life. Allowing God to guide us to where we need to take a heart that’s not prideful! I asked God to remove my pridefulness from my heart many times. I had an intense desire for Him to just be free to move within my life.

This month made me more intuned with how I am setting goals, how I feel about myself in all areas of my life, and also how practicing gratitude and compassion have helped shift my overall outlook on my prayer life. I am ready to move forward into December with so much grace it would feel as if I am just floating.

Feel free to share with me anything that you want to. I'm here to content with you.
