>>>>>> When’s the last time you did something for the first time? <<<<<<

Recently I had a plan, which I’m sure God laughed at, and things happened totally differently. Through this situation I learned that God had foreshadowed it occurring and I should have prepared sooner. Now, although I have a weight lifted because He took me out of the toxic environment I was in, now I feel like I’m in a time crunch to find my next stepping stone and don’t want to settle for just a temporary fix.

Although during your twenties we all will ultimately experience temporary circumstances, living spaces, jobs, relationships, even phases, that are just molding us into becoming a more secure adult.

Another situation I recently experienced was rushing into a relationship too soon. I did not take the time to get to know the person before we were deciding to take it to another level. I learned you can’t expect anything from anyone no matter what they say and also to STOP RUSHING. When you let something fully blossom you get to see people for who they truly are! It may take 3 months or 3 years (if that!) before you can truly say you know someone for who they are. Some have more or less baggage, may or may not have a wall up, and will decide to open up on their own time.

We have to trust the timing of our lives!

Remember, God sets the speed and His plan for us!

    Beautifully written… So true!

    As a blossuming sunflower, we should all strive to make our dreams come true. Many stepping stones in our lives and/or experiences are set by God to make us appreciative for the blessings that are soon to follow. Sometimes to really hear God and to receive those things that he has in store for our lives we must: turn Facebook off, shut Instagram down and take steps toward a leap of faith that people would otherwise question. However, boldly standing for what we believe God has set for our own individual lives. Joy is what we seek to have more of, however many people settle only to have tempory happiness. So, are we as Sunflowers standing bodly on his word and waiting for everlastingl joy or worldy happiness?
