God Has PERFECT Timings

Am reading a book called The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives, I had been looking for it and finally a friend sent it to me. I am all about African literature; I just finished The Memory of Love by Aminnatta Forna as am busy looking for The Hairdresser of Harare by Tendai Huchu. Basically reading has been my life for past six months; …work, God and my African literature books. I have grown happier and patient, less bothersome about situations I cannot correct. I am learning what it means to walk with God every day of my life. So peaceful I must say… (I don’t have much but He provides that which I need). These past months major changes occurred I felt it (okay physically am still trying this weight thing because the good Lord sees my weakness and is generous with his Strength) but emotionally… mentally and spiritually the winds have changed direction. The year didn’t start well but here I am testifying of His great deeds. I graduated to that age which the society want to smell cows a stretch away…I like when my aunts call me and after pleasantries they ask when is the wedding leave alone that am yet to find this Boaz. Am used to it now I never ask question rather laugh it off. Sometimes my response is simple as “He’s being displayed at the market, on my way home I will not forget to pick him. He’s pre-packed, ready am just too stubborn and late as usual.” Getting the right man is not easy especially if you long for one truly aligned with God’s Word. In a world full vanity; misconception between what is wrong and right…nothing is black or white in dating arena.  It’s been said time and again we are a microwavable generation and we love them instant. Am yet to be in a committed relationship (not ashamed to admit it) because of this style of doing things we lack PATIENCE we want it and we want it now this very second. Even God does not work that way, I believe He is a God of process. His word is clear: with prayer and persistence yet, persistence does not stem alone but is rooted firmly in patience so is continuous pray and not giving up… Wait on Him patiently He will prevail. But no…We lack a key thing in life and that’s why some end up with responsibilities when we are too young God forbid we don’t die young cause of our reckless behavior. It takes the Grace of God to be where I am today. Because had He not stepped in to walk me into my purpose, looking back I would be no where. He prevailed and showed me I deserved much more I do not know to what extent but every day He opens my eyes to new sightings. Like a bud flourishing in His sight, He is showing me how His ways are magnificent in my life…and how He is fighting for me and how He has aligned everything in my favor. His word says: Ephesians 1:4-5 even as he chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will Ephesians 1:11 In Him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of His will. 1 Peter 1:20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you. Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations. Romans 8:29 for those whom He foreknew Him also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. So yes I will wait and I truly know it will be worth it. For I have met but a few men out here some turned out to be cheaters after side piece, others after dipping into the cookie jar and dumping. And in a generation where people would rather end up in horrible, unstable…full of drama relationships than be alone. Are we that scared of your own company that we have to seek “shelter” in unfulfilling relational ties? We lack intimacy in our lives, we met ate the icing and cherries on top of the cake. Before we could know it, we had sugar rush and instantly it wore off we had little energy left. So we picked up our baggage and left leaving the cake on the table. I want the cake before the whole cherries and icing on top. I want to know someone; what are their deepest fears? How about their bucket list and can we do it together except for bungee jumping. I want to know their hopes and dreams and know if their similar to mine or we can mash it up together to form a rainbow. I want to know their goals and if somehow they hit closer to home, how they view life and where is God in it. Why they eat in a certain manner, are they night owls? Why they like red and not green. Why they don’t tip a waiter, why they prefer brown shoes for office wear and why are all his socks black. Why is his hair always sharply cut, why not an afro and why he is a morning person (am just not a chatty one in the morning I need my solar charge till around 9 to 10). The nitty gritty about someone that’s the cake. And vice versa for me too. But my generation will settle for ANYTHING we lack standards… Measures… never setting the bar high enough for those interested in us to make just little bit of effort. All because we lack patience…
