His Perfect Timing
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. - Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV)
What a gift I found this morning. Lately, I have been reading God’s Little Devotional Book of Prayer. I decided to look for one of my old prayer journals to see what prayers had been answered. Several prayer journals—all only half filled—showed my inconsistency. For months, I write profusely every morning. Then life happens; I don’t have time for quiet times. When the inspiration hits me again, a brand new journal calls my name. Writing on the first page of a fresh journal thrills me. Someday, I want to discover the feeling of writing on the last page.
This morning, my hand landed on a lovely pink and brown book, half finished, of course. The soft leather opened to the last day of writing —November 21, 2009—four years ago. I read: “Lord, I want to retire from teaching, to finish my book and write devotionals for Your glory. I will wait on Your perfect timing. In the meantime, give me the joy of teaching so that my students will see You.”
Four years later, I walked into my home, my last day of teaching, to find the first shipment of my first book. My Lord knew I needed four more years. God gave me the gift of His perfect timing. Why do I ever groan over God’s timing? With Him in charge, I have no worries.
