Wow! December is here. Wasn’t Christmas just yesterday?
Frankly, I’m glad November is over.
Though I had a lovely Thanksgiving with all the trimmings, part of the month was dramatic.
First, I had a slight “fender bender.” Of course, every new car, it seems, has to be “initiated” into real traffic. Mine happened in the parking lot! Wouldn’t you know?
Next, one day, in a split second, I found myself flat on my face. I tripped, fell, and fortunately hurt nothing but my pride. But for a few days I felt like I had been run over by the “proverbial truck.”
A day or two later, I nearly burned my house down (that’s a whole other story). So I’m hoping these incidents really come in threes and I’m done!
I’m sorry to have to say, but a little fear, unrest settled on me during my “saga.” I remember thinking, “God, do you remember your clumsy child down here?”
And, yes, He did answer in a profound way.
Just a day or so ago, in a time of having a need that I thought was urgent, I almost went ahead of God to fill the vacuum; after I had unreservedly (I thought) given it to Him.
Needless to say, I have a new regard for God and His timing. There is a fresh awareness that He cares for the smallest details of our lives. And He’s in charge of the timing.
Someone has said, “Don’t steal tomorrow out of God’s hands. Do not run impetuously ahead of God. Wait His time. The hour and the minute hand must point the exact moment for action.”
Do you have an answer too long in coming? Wait on God; no one else sees the whole picture.
