Its God’s Timing

I think sometimes we expect too much in too little of a time. We don’t like to wait. We get frustrated if we’re in a long line. Through the power of the Internet we have a lot of information right at our fingertips! A student once told me that in her country, you could wait on the cable guy for a couple of days before he comes to resolve the issue with your television. I’m usually able fix any technical problem over the phone.

But we have to understand that in the spiritual realm things work differently. We can’t get what we want quickly, or simply have our dream come true! Success is a process, and so are things like healing and promotion. We have to work hard, and we have to learn to get better and earn what we have. There are no short cuts.

Have you ever heard its “God’s timing” before? God’s timing means you work towards your hopes, dreams, and goals but know that ultimately—you are not the one in control. He wants to promote you. But you have to trust Him. I would rather have God’s timing, it’s better than my own!

Keys to Success

Found on pinterest.com

There are no prerequisites to success. Success is not measured by what you have, what you own, or the amount of approval you get. Success is measured by the ability to remain happy in life even when circumstances are not so bright. ~ Zina Hermez

I’m thankful for many things. My life has not turned out exactly how I expected it to, but in many ways it’s far better than I ever imagined it could be. I always knew I had something significant to do. I couldn’t come here and do nothing. I feel that I’m now fulfilling that desire through my writing. I’ve learned that success in life is not measured by what you have, or who surrounds you. The favor of others is not a prerequisite to being happy. I’m very lonely at times, but I’ve learned that a prerequisite to happiness is taking all of the love that God has given you, and accepting it. Bask in it. And with a hopeful spirit, look ahead at tomorrow. There are joyful opportunities awaiting you. You’ll see.

Show Up

My motto

Found on youtube.com

I love this quote! I think it should be our motto. No matter how tired you may be, or disappointed. Regardless of any feelings of negativity you may be experiencing. Even when it hurts me, I show up. By showing up we have won half the battle! And of course, never ever give up!
