Perfect Timing

Something amazing happens when you put your trust in God.

The whole world opens up to surprise & delight you!

Perhaps my favorite gift from God is His perfect timing.

When I really trust Him, I am always getting ready for whatever He has planned for me.  I don’t need to know what IT is because I know that the Lord has a plan & is orchestrating it all, effortlessly.

“Every good gift” comes from Him.  – James 1:17 ESV

So look for God’s grace in everything you do.  Don’t pass it off as a coincidence but praise it when you see it & pretty soon you will be WOW’d by the overflowing goodness flowing into your life!

Perfect example, recently I said a quick prayer to God to smooth my path on a trip out-of-town.  That’s it.  Simple & “amen.”

As soon as I got on the road out-of-town, which I’ve driven a hundred times, there was a small-engine airplane coming in for landing.. right over my car!

It wasn’t a scary moment, it was exhilarating!  The plane had plenty of room above me before the airport but it was something I’ve never seen before.. no matter how many times I’ve driven that way.  There it was.  There I was.  How fun!!  2 seconds before or 2 seconds later, I would have missed the thrill of it all.  Perfect timing.

In movies there will be occasional winks from the Filmmaker called “Easter eggs” as a treat for you to catch some inside meaning.  As Christians we see the Easter egg as Christ’s resurrection.  SO look for the EASTER EGGS IN LIFE!

Often the Easter eggs show up in the form of perfect timing.

For example, this Christmas Eve I was on my way to candlelight services & as I drove into town I saw the most brilliant sunset.  Listen folks, this was a sunset like I’ve never seen before.  Like the famous sunsets of West Texas that show a play of hot pink, hues of purple, & streaks of vibrant blue all the way across the sky.  It .. was .. epic!

I decided to stop by a restaurant for a little iced tea before going to the church.  As I pulled in, I marveled at the extraordinary sight of it all.  This sunset stretched from one horizon to the other.

I stepped out of my car & took in the glory of it.  Suddenly realizing the couple who parked next to me were staring awe-struck, as well.

As we shared the precious moment of God’s glory in vivid light across the sky, I shared with them where I was going & they shared with me they were going to say goodbye to her brother who was gravely ill in the hospital.

We went inside to warm up & they shared more of their Christmas Eve journey to be together with family at this most difficult time.  I hugged perfect strangers & we held on remembering some good times & preparing them for what’s close at hand.  How even if her brother wasn’t conscious, he would still know she was with him & how more importantly, God knows.

Her husband said he was glad we met each other at that very moment.  And I felt the same!

And just like that, I was on my way to church, praying for her family’s peace & they were on their way to her dearly loved brother.

I know for certain God arranged that meeting.

I could not have timed it so perfectly.  If I had known I was meeting them, I would have worried over them, hurried over the time, maybe missed the gorgeous sunset, & fretted.

Trust in God’s timing.  It is impeccable.

Look for those miracles every single day.

Get ready because God has plans for you.. right now.

God is not absent.  He may delay for reasons we have to trust are in our benefit, but He has not forgotten you.  God’s word is truth.  – John 17:17
