God’s perfect timing
Have you ever thought you were procrastinating on something God wanted you to do, but when you finally did it, it was the perfect time?
God has a way of working things out and timing events in our lives better than we can.
God has perfect timing!
In this episode, I share a major Aha! moment when I was very down on myself because, in my mind, I had failed to accomplish what I thought God wanted me to do.
I cried out to God for forgiveness and the simple eight words He spoke to me completely changed my perspective on what seemed like a bunch of starts and stops in my life.
God prepares us
God is preparing you for greater things than it may seem based on how you look at your life. If we could see ourselves from God’s perspective, the view would be very different and we would see all the stray bits and pieces in perfect alignment with God’s plan for us.
A simple prayer
Here’s a simple prayer that was shared with me over 40 years ago:
Dear God, prepare me for what You have prepared for me.
Thanks for listening. Please share with a friend.
