Are you are like me? You hate being late but you also hate waiting. I get agitated if I am not at my destination 5 minutes before the appointed time but once that 5 minutes is up, the scheduled time has arrived, and I’m still waiting? Well, let’s just say I can get pretty opinionated on the efficiency of the establishment or the character of the person I am waiting on. Could it be that I have control issues? Hmm…
The truth is, in life, timing isn’t something we can always control. Sure we have goals and deadlines and acceptable standards of conduct in relationships but how often do we wish things to move at a different pace; sometimes faster, sometimes slower? How often do we throw in the towel and simply give up because the fruit of our labor isn’t coming in the timely manner we desire?
Yes, there are seasons when we need to readjust or even quit but how often do we give up simply because we are weary because we don’t see the results when we thought we should see the results?
But what if our timing isn’t everything? What if it’s not about us? What if we never see and reap the fruit we desire in our lifetime? What if we are sowing seeds that a generation yet to be born will harvest?
Today let us dream and set goals. Let us do and implement. Let us engage and interact. But let us never forget that there is One who sees the whole and times things beautifully if we let Him.
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up!” Galatians 6:9
Do not grow weary brave one. We may or may not see the harvest this side of eternity, but make no mistake about it, we will see the harvest. This is our heritage. Timing is everything if timing is the Lord’s!
Unhindered…live the masterpiece!
