“When the time is right, I, The Lord, will make it happen.” Isaiah 60:22
Trust me, The Lord WILL make it happen when the timing is right.
When I first saw my husband, I was 14-years-old, a freshman in high school and he was a senior. No words were spoken to each other until my sophomore year of college, I was 19 and he was now 22 and a recent college graduate.
At this point in my life, I had told myself that I was not going to date again until I graduated college but God apparently had a different plan. We were living three hours apart and spent months calling each other and Skyping before actually meeting in person. So he picks me up for our first date, and asks me to be his girlfriend by the end (so much for not dating, right?) Nine months later we were engaged and six months after that we were saying “I do!”
Now we have been married for a year, and I still haven’t graduated from college. But God’s plan was far better than anything that I could have ever imagined in my life.
So here are some things that I learned from God’s timing and my relationship. First of all, a relationship needs to be built on the love of Jesus Christ and most importantly you need to be able to love each other how Jesus loves you. There is no greater bond that can be built in a relationship than this. You need to pray for each other and pray often. God will be able to complete your partner on a level that you never will.
I mean, can you imagine someone loving you so much that they take the time to pray for just you?
Your success, your struggles, they are asking God to help you. Who doesn’t want a love like that? God’s timing is His will and He knows when we are ready for our “perfect match." God's timing will always be better than our own, always.
“When couples love God first they love each other better.”
If you’re still single and struggling with God’s timing this verse is just for you. “I will never forget you. See, upon the palms of my hands I have written your name.” Isaiah 49:16. This is a promise from God that He has not forgotten you but He is preparing something better for you in His timing.
I know in today’s world it is so hard to find someone who shares the same values as you or holds to your beliefs. But trust me, God has handpicked someone just for you. Not someone to complete you, because that is Gods job. But He has chosen someone that will love you so much and help you to grow closer to Him. By keeping God at the center of your future relationship you will be able to overcome any obstacle this world throws at you. So trust in Gods timing and know that He will always be faithful to you.
