Glitter Belt

I was thinking about God's timing today. There are so many prayer requests I've made so fervently at the time, but looking back, would have missed out on a bigger blessing if God had allowed them in my timing.  Ten years ago I prayed so hard to get into a certain university. I had already gotten into Biola University, but would have gone to that other school had they accepted me. A ton of people got in that had worse grades, fewer activities and lower test scores. It was so shocking to me that it worked out that way but now I see why. I met my husband at Biola! I'm so thankful He is so gracious and loving and sees the bigger picture. My life would have been so different. It was one of those life- altering forks in the road. So glad God directed my path.

  2. Haha - awesome selfie! Yes, this reminds me of the Garth Brook's song - Unanswered Prayers. I certainly believe that everything happens (or doesn't happen) for a reason, and all things work for the good of those who love Him! Glad everything worked itself out! And my sister graduated from Biola - small world!
    Thanks for sharing your story with the holiday style linkup!

  4. You crack me up! I loved getting a little more of a glimpse into your life and love hearing about the ways that God directs us- especially when it's not the direction we would choose for ourselves but it turns out so perfectly. Thanks for sharing your remix with us- love that sparkly belt over your cardigan!
