We all create timelines for ourselves even though most the time things don’t happen like we planned or when we planned them. God doesn’t take orders from us, and while He cares about our plans sometimes He has more important things for us.
My own timeline has been destroyed so many times I don’t know why are bother rebuilding it. I just like having a plan of when things will happen. Having the goal of it happening just doesn’t seem to be enough. I want to outline my life, no matter if it ends up being followed or not.
I make them just to have God throw them away, so I found myself laughing when I realized that one of my timeline items had ended up working out.
In college I had sworn that I wanted to get married by 25, but after graduating and getting deathly ill I had decided that that was just another item to cross out. After all, how would it be possible to make that happen? I stopped thinking about it then, but low and behold, I’m going to end up getting married exactly three months after I turn 25.
Turns out I had finally managed to be on the same page with God about something, not that I’m going to get used to it.

I’m curious about why you set 25 as your goal to get married? I didn’t date much until the latter end of college, so I knew I just wanted to get married at some point and hopefully before 30. But I also know the national average age of brides is on the rise, so I’m not too worried. Thanks for sharing!

It’s mainly because I wanted to start having kids before I was 30! And I want to be married for a year or two before I have kids. It seemed like a good number!
