What time is it? Have you asked that question a few times this week?
During this beautiful season, I often find myself wondering which leaves get chosen to fall off the tree in any given moment.
Each leaf hangs on until the perfect timing for it to fall freely to the ground.
I feel I’m in a season of watching God’s perfect timing play out.
I’d been praying about ways to make more money to help pay for the van we want to buy for our son, Gabe. It will allow him to drive and gain much more independence. We’ve been thinking about this van since Gabe as sixteen.
Recently he was approved by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation to help him with the adaptations, but he will purchase the basic van.
This all came about at the same time I was able to increase my hours at work. This was another answer to my prayer to help Gabe.
This week I’m in Portland for training on some of my new responsibilities. Think about this, on the heals of completing a weekend class on writing a novel, I’m asked to spend a week in Portland for work. It happens that this is also the first week of NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month which occurs every November.
My evenings are free to write the story that I’ve been thinking about for almost twenty years. But I wasn’t ready twenty years ago. I’m ready now.
Now I call that — Perfect timing!
Sometimes I can get discouraged when I don’t see a quick answer. But this month I’ve remembered to give it all to the creator of time and watch how He decides to work it out.
Philippians 4:6 “4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Are you waiting?
My prayer is that you will wait in peace.
Let me know if I can pray for you as you wait.
God bless you.
