TRUST THE PROCESS

By Erika

First, let me say, “Where does the time go?” What happened to the little guy holding the little football? My son is now 22 years old. Like every mom, I think I have the most handsome kid in the world. I’m currently married but spent most of his life raising him as a single mother. Oh yes! There are many lessons this young man has taught me.

I remember when Xavier was in the 4th grade. I enjoyed having lunch with him and his friends. What mother doesn’t want to sit around the table with fourth graders and hear what they talk about? One day I decided it was time to have lunch with him again That morning I told him before he left for school, I would be there. I also told him we needed a plan B just in case something happened.

Plan B would be for him to wait for me at our special table. If I wasn’t there five minutes after his lunch started, he would go ahead and eat without me. Well, the time came and I was rushing down the highway trying to meet my son. Have you ever had a time when you were trying to get somewhere and it seemed like every obstacle that could prevent you from getting there on time happened along the way? Well, that’s exactly how I felt that day. Cars seemed to be moving slower than normal. It was as if the speed limit was decreased for every car except mine. Oh, let’s not talk about stop lights that seemed to get stuck on red longer than normal. I could not get there fast enough.

After what seemed like forever, I finally arrived and rushed inside the school to eat with him. I found him waiting at our table and he looked up at me with a smile. It was past the time we agreed upon. I looked at him and said, “Son, remember I told you to eat if I didn’t make it here five minutes after your lunch started?” He looked at me and said, “Yes, but I knew you would be here." My kiddo taught me a lesson that day about trust. I often have to remind myself of it today.

  • He taught me that with God you don’t need a plan B. He will do what He said He will do, and what He has planned for your life will happen.

  • Things may not happen when you want them to happen, but God’s timing is perfect.

  • He also taught me a lesson on faith. He had faith to hold out and wait for me because he knew I would be there. He could have eaten the food in the cafeteria, but by waiting he was able to eat his favorite meal. There will be times when we have to wait; and by waiting, we will receive something better than we anticipated.

Are you trying everything to reach your goal or accomplish something, and it seems like the odds are against you? Do you feel like every challenge that’s out there has your name connected to it? Or, are you like Xavier, and you’re in a period of waiting for something to happen? No matter what situation you are facing today, I want to encourage you to trust the process and keep believing it will happen at just the right time!
