God’s Timing

Hey,

c50ce5bd99b27a7a1f19b5262bc6c40fI came across an old Instagram post from Heather Lindsey just yesterday while skimming through my note3 picture feed. The picture to the left was from last year and I honestly didn’t thing it would pertain to any part of my life but, as a child of God… yes! What I mean to say is, I don’t have randoms(boyfriends or lovers on the side). Never dated actually. Never kissed a boy. Never held hands with a bow either (male family members don’t count).

I guess you can say I was never really interested and that isn’t a bad thing. Well the days where I was a high schooler is now gone and so are my “supposed” college days. I’m 23 years old and I don’t feel like my biological clock is ticking, but I do feel like everyone who was in my birth-year; those I went to school with, I feel like there life is going somewhere and I’m stuck right where I’ve always been and that’s by myself, by little ole me.

I’m not bothered by my “single-ness”. I have never been. I think most people who can relate to me agree. It’s not the single, the plus one(not), that is the problem. It’s the perspective of seeing someone else life move on and your stuck.

Let me repeat that: It’s perspective.
(A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.)

The fact that I am looking through the looking glass that is so clouded {envy, jealousy} I can’t see the truth, but I see the mirage. I see what the devil wants me to see. I see the happiness of others but not their struggle to get there. I see their green grass, but not the amount of time and hard earned tending to  that green grass. We see people happy, and yet don’t know why or how, yet we want what they have.

A few days ago, I believe this past Monday, I was going through a few I was reading up on RecessionistaCornelious Lindseyand some others as I got through drifting through a few random IG’s. I came across a lot of men who followed God with all their heart and focused on him with a perspective that couldn’t be shaken from years of learning and learning on God.

God showed me and told me as plain as day: There are plenty of them {men of God} out there who live for me, if I wanted you to be taken, I would have let you be seen.

God’s will for my life has to be within my perspective- my point of view. If I don’t live for God, I won’t be happy. If I don’t give up the worldly desire, I won’t be happy. I won’t be spiritually fulfilled, spiritually happy, spiritually satisfied. If God isn’t your perspective- your point of view, then forget about happiness.

No, happiness won’t be the first thing you experience on your walk with Christ. Freedom will be. Then aching, then pain, then rest, then more refining, then more rest, then battling, then breaks in war, then more war, then one day it would be settled. Everything will be fine, dandy even. Satan and his demonic army will be put to rest and you to eternal freedom and happiness.

So, I don’t look at people the same. I look at them how God would want me to see them. I am hidden by God. No man can come for me unless God wants them too and I am totally fine with that. That just leaves God and Me for a while, a good while, and that’s just what I need to keep my perspective right. Plus, I’m a pretty spoiled princess, I’ve been with God for far too long, that man who is meant for me has to be more than average, but a prince in the making.

The Perfect Sandwich

Have you ever had the perfect sandwich? Do you know when that was? Can you even remember how it tasted?

Well to help you out, I haven’t ever had such a perfect sandwich until today. I always used to say that a hand made sandwich taste better when made by somebody else… but then I made a sandwich today, because I was starving (exaggeration!) and you know it could probably be from being hungry for so long, but it was the BEST THING I HAVE EVER TASTED! Point blank, hands down, no more conversation about it, that’s just it! The best.

Here are some pictures… yes I took pictures!

Those were the ingredients and the way I made it the first time. This is a second time. Yup, I made my self another one! Woop!

~No butter on the side with the cheese~ {!important note!}

How’s your favorite sandwich made?

Oddly Curious,

Annie ^_^
