“…no one really knows what is going to happen; no one can predict the future.”
We’ve been going through Ecclesiastes in our Bible study at church, and for the most part it’s a depressing/uninteresting book. (Sorry, God.) However, this week, the verse above came up – and Tyler and I couldn’t help but look at each other and laugh.
Like I mentioned a few posts ago, we’ve been having an ongoing discussion lately about the future. Jobs, family, where to live, going back to school, etc. You name it, we’ve probably considered it! We’ve been waiting on a few job prospects for both of us, and are hemming and hawing about making any other plans until we hear back. We’re major planning types, so to not have a sure plan is driving us crazy.
But this verse… it just seemed to come at the perfect time. Our pastor read it, and then talked about how sometimes you just have to go for it without worrying about if it’s the right time. I don’t think either of us believed when we entered college that we’d get married 3.5 years later, but we went for it and it’s been an amazing 2.75 years. Going to be pondering on this verse for the rest of the week… how many areas of my life do I just need to let go and trust God in? Who cares if it’s my “right time” – is it God’s time?
