I Don’t Wait Anymore Giveaway

Have you been waiting for life to turn out the way you expected?

Grace Thornton was.

“But after my life plan was ripped away, I felt like everything I had was exposed and up for grabs.”

Can you relate to how Grace was feeling? Has the rug been ripped right out from under you and what you thought were these wonderfully solid plans, were nothing more than sand falling away into the cracks?

Grace Thornton has written this beautifully inspiring book, I Don’t Wait Anymore and assures us we are not alone if we’re confused by what our expectations are versus what reality looks like.

There are lots of us out there who feel that way. Grace Thornton is one. She had dreams, plans, and ideas for what her life should look like. For one, she thought she’d be married. She thought she’d have kids. She thought God would bring her the life she’d been waiting for because she knew He was good and she tried to be obedient. (From the book’s back cover).

It’s difficult (to say the least) when a closely held dream of ours doesn’t come to fruition. When we realize this isn’t what God had planned for us after all, it can be a rude awakening, a confusing one, and set us spinning with wonder what God is doing. But rest assured, He’s always working on our behalf and the true dream He has for us is far better than the one we imagined for ourselves.

“It happens when we lose sight of who God is—our dreams make their way from our pockets into our hearts, and God moves from our hearts into our pockets. And the jingle of our dreams becomes a lot louder than His voice.”

    You would think that by now, I would have learned that lesson already but I don’t think I have! I had such a plan for my life. I was going to University, would meet the man of my dreams by 22 and be married at 25 and have my first child around 27. When I was 21, I got drunk at a party and slept with someone and got pregnant. Yep. Derailed. After regrouping from that, I changed my direction and made a new plan. Got married. Moved to NY. Was going to be a writer in NYC. That plan was also derailed in a big way when my husband went into long-term treatment for drug addiction and I had to high-tail it back to Canada! What a mess. Here I am, back where I started and trying to NOT figure it out this time 😀 I would love to read the book!

    These are great graphics, very pinnable! I have many friends who were disappointed that their lives didn’t follow the path they thought they were supposed to take. It’s so hard to remember that God has a better plan for us than we can even imagine ourselves!

      They are lovely, Dianna. I didn’t make them though. 🙂 I agree that God’s plan is even better than our imaginations!
