I am so excited to share this JORD Wood Watch with you today. I have literally been wearing it ever since it arrived in the mail. It is lightweight and fun to throw on for an everyday look. And here is the best part about this watch: JORD and I are giving you the chance to win one too! Yes, I have teamed up with JORD for my first ever giveaway. All you have to do to enter is fill out the information HERE. You will get the chance to win a $75 gift card to JORD, AND you will automatically receive a $20 gift card when you enter. So, everybody wins!  It will close one week from today on Tuesday, September 6th.

Of course, when I think about watches, I think about the time. The time reminds me of my plan. My plan reminds me of how I pretty much expect things to work out on MY TIME. But it is not my time, it is His. I am constantly having to remind myself of this truth. Are you?

The story of Joseph in Genesis is a good reminder of how we should trust God’s timing - even when His timing isn't what WE have planned.  Joseph was told through a dream that he would be the leader of his people. Before that even happened, Joseph had to wait patiently through each situation. Not only did he have to be patient, he had to trust that God would lead him to what he was called to do. I mean, Joseph was thrown in jail by his brothers. HIS BROTHERS! And he still continued to trust in the Lord's timing. 

As the time ticks by (hopefully, on your new JORD watch) and things maybe don’t go as planned, I pray that you will remember to put your trust in His timing. And if things are going according to plan, I pray that you give praise to the path He has created for you. 

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” – Proverbs 16:9
