I’ve heard the “wait till you’re ready” argument used for getting married, buying a home, changing careers, and having or not having children. These are huge things! Of course there are financial matters to consider. Of course there are steps to take before diving into some things. But in all these situations and more, being ready shouldn’t be a deciding factor.
There are some things that we simply cannot be ready for, and that is okay because it leaves us open.
This isn’t about being a planner kind of person, about having each and every nook & cranny of our lives swept out and ready to go.
It’s about being open to the path God has prepared for each of us. Whether or not we choose to embrace it? That’s on us, and if we’re waiting until everything in our lives is in place, we might miss it.
