So lately God’s timing has been front and center in my life.
From hearing about my littler sister’s story where God used a letter rom before she was born to speak to her, to God perfectly timing things in my own life this past week. It just makes me love my God that much more knowing that He is bigger than time and bigger than anything in this world.
This past Monday, I stayed in the office much longer than normal…like until 11pm. I began to get frustrated, but finished my work and started to head home. Of course all the way I was complaining and still couldn’t believe that I had worked that late. I was venting to my friend on the phone and just sitting in a cloud of negativity. Since I hadn’t been home all day I stopped to check the mail and found a small package inside. I didn’t remember ordering anything, nor did I recognize the address it came from. Not thinking anything about it, I opened it to find my wallet that I had lost in New York City while visiting my sister more than 2 months ago! I had pulled out every string I could looking for this thing, called the NYC Police station every day for weeks, called the taxi cab company, and did pretty much anything I could think of to find it. But with no luck. Inside the package was my wallet with a small yellow sticky note that read, “Found your wallet in a NYC taxi! Hope it gets to you safely and you have everything! :)”
This simple act of kindness by someone I have never met before and likely will never have the opportunity to meet, completely altered the way that I approached the remainder of my day. I don’t know why it took 2 months for this wallet to find its way back to me, but I know that over the last 2 months, this is the single most point where it would have helped the most!
In that moment, God spoke very clearly to me and gave me a joy unlike I had been given in a while. The message was simply this, “don’t worry I have evberything under control, My timing is perfect”
I know I have said this here before, but I continue to go back to what one of my pastors said not to long ago. If we were able to go to heaven and literally see how big God is, then come back here, we would never worry or question His timing ever again. We would walk with a confidence unlike anything we could imagine. God is bigger than anything we are struggling with and is always perfect on timing, even if it make no sense to us.
Trust His timing, and thank Him when you see the fruits of it.
