11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
— Jeremiah 29:11

There is a lot about timing about life that we don’t understand. Why do good people die? Why are the people we love taken away from us? Why can’t the way we want our lives to look like work out? Over these past couple of weeks I have battled with understanding perfect timing since a lot of situations in my life started to go off-side.

I started to question God and my faith in him, as to why things in my life that seemed so perfect, went wrong. I didn’t understand why everyone would tell me.. ”It’s okay Stella, it’s God’s plan”. Why would a God who loves us make us sad. I struggled with this for a couple of days. After talking to a lot of my friends and older mentors, I realized it was all part of a perfect plan.

I wanted to make this post to encourage everyone because I feel like we all go through hardships in life and we start to question our existence and why things go wrong. I have come to understand that things happen for a reason. You might go through family, financial, social and many other issues, but it always happens for a reason. It makes us stronger. God wouldn’t give you anything he knows you can’t handle. It might happen to strengthen your relationship with others or even with your relationship with God himself.

When things go wrong, we shouldn’t overly stress ourselves about them. We should’t spend days crying about them. We should try and focus on the brighter side no matter how hard it may be. One day, you will look back and see these situations as things that happened to make you a better and stronger person.
