It’s no secret that singer and actress Jamie Lynn Spears has relied on faith to help her get through her daughter’s harrowing recovery following a horrific ATV accident.
In fact, Spears took to Instagram last week to share a page from her devotional as well as a long message to her fans about her belief that “God’s timing is no coincidence.”
Writing specifically about her 8-year-old daughter, Maddie, and the scary accident that left the singer fearful, she offered some candid lessons about what the incident taught her about faith, motherhood and plenty more.
“I turned 26 years old today I’m not one to preach, and I’m no priest, but God’s timing is no coincidence,” she wrote. “Music, and my career have always been a big passion in my life … I have been working on my music for almost a decade now, and I have had many great successes as an artist/writer, but I was always wondering, how long I would have to WAIT for my big break?”
Spears continued, “Wow, did God put me in my place.”
I turned 26 years old today ?? I'm not one to preach, and I'm no priest, but God's timing is no coincidence. I hate seeing, much less, reading someone's long post, but here I go? Music, and my career have always been a big passion in my life, as well as to create a future that my family could be proud of. I have been working on my music for almost a decade now, and I have had many great successes as an artist/writer, but I was always wondering, how long I would have to WAIT for my big break? Wow, did God put me in my place….. Time doesn't matter, and seems to blur together when you're waiting for your daughter to wake up, and a day could be a week, and you wouldn't notice, because you're fighting for what you love. For obvious reasons, I put everything with my work life on hold, till I knew my little girl was more then okay. Now, more then ever, I realize how important it is to only put your time into things that matter, and I can't wait to get back to my music. Now, that my baby girl is better- I can't wait to make her proud. She is my everything. I want to thank you all for your patience, and prayers as we worked through this hard time.Music to come? Much love❤️ 26 is gonna be a good year ?❤️
In the end, Spears said she learned a profound lesson about impatience and God’s timing as she nervously awaited her daughter’s recovery — a lesson that put everything into perspective.

Spears said she can’t wait to get back to her music now that Maddie is better and that she “can’t wait to make her proud.” She concluded by thanking her fans for their prayers and patience.
“(Twenty-six) is gonna be a good year,” she wrote.
As Faithwire previously reported, Spears has relied on her faith throughout her daughter’s ordeal, frequently asking fans for prayer.
