There are so many things that have gone on in my life that I love sharing with others, it’s fun to talk about the wonderful things that go one in your life, all the progress you’ve made.
And then there are times where I don’t like sharing with others–about my life that is.
I don’t want to tell you about the negative things that I’ve gone through.
Although they’ve made me who I am today, it’s kind of a personal barrier that can be hard to chop down.
I think the walls that I put up are pretty darn thick.
These past few years have really opened my eyes.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve wished for something, hoped for somethings, dreamed for something prayed for something, and it never happened. And it still hasn’t happened.
Yet, for oh-so many people around me it was happening.
And there I was falling behind everyone else-or so I thought and felt.
And when these similar prayers came back of dreaming for something, and praying for something, I began to find comfort in the words that I read earlier in the week.
“Although His time is not always our time, we can be sure that the Lord keeps His promises.”
– Henry B. Eyring
I couldn’t help but smile when I read this for the first time. I felt so much peace inside knowing and understanding these words.
Later in the week I listened to this talk and thought the words were specifically meant for me.
So many of the things coming out of President Eyring’s mouth were the things I was feeling and going through. They were things I needed to hear.
“God is close to us and aware of us, and never hides from His faithful children.”
How grateful am I to have a testimony of this, to know that God’s timing may not be my timing, but that through faith and His will we will be directed in the ways that He sees fit.
No matter how bad we may want something or pray for something, it’s always on His time.
