If you know me, you know my last few years have been an adventure. Living in London, experiencing an array of different countries in Europe in the process, moving back to Arkansas and getting to work as a museum educator at Crystal Bridges, getting engaged to Ben and now finding my dream job- it has been a whirlwind of a life the last few years.
“You’re great, you’re what we are looking for, but we found someone with a little more experience!”It was disheartening every time. I questioned whether I was pursuing the right path.
As I sat waiting for the Crystal Bridges tram system one day, I was convicted by the quiet voice my doubt had been squelching. God’s timing is perfect, the position I hadn’t gotten was perfect for someone else, but it wasn’t perfect for what his purpose was for me. I had to be patient and wait.
“But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:25-28
