As I journey through the most intriguing quest of my life, I am keenly aware of GOD’s timing. No…no… it’s more than that.
I am in awe of how HE is orchestrating and arranging and fine-tuning the unfolding of this story.
Someone, probably several “someones”, many years ago, made a gut-wrenching decision—to leave a three-day-old baby on a door step. To walk away and never know what became of this life. I was that baby. (see “The Making of a Family…)
And now, only two months after learning of my “foundling” beginnings, it appears I am on the cusp of discovering the WHO and the WHYS surrounding that decision. Through little effort on my part, GOD has opened doors and stirred memories and so divinely put the right people in the right place at the right time. Incredibly kind fellow Christians who are praying along with me for HIS will to be accomplished.
Because HE’s GOD.
My curious, dig-for-the-details nature is, to put it mildly, restless. I’m trying very hard to be patient and continue to wait on GOD’s timing. HIS faithfulness soothes my anxious spirit. HIS hand print has been so evident, how can I choose to do anything but step back and allow HIM to work?
For three weeks, the message on the church’s sign has been, “GOD’s TIMING IS ALWAYS RIGHT”. So very true.
The pastor’s devotional at last night’s meeting was on how GOD opens doors. Mm hmm…
And a new friend I’ve met on this journey shared yesterday— The details never escape an Omniscient God…every detail has His print upon it. Very well said.
GOD is all over this situation. Obviously.
This “slice” of my life comes as no surprise to HIM. HE already knows how the entire “pie” will fit together.
Just as HE’s held my life in his hands for these many years, GOD’s got this new leg of my journey as well. Updates on the quest to follow…
When has GOD’s timing been so evident in your life?
