Tonight at church the preacher said something I really needed to hear....and the strange thing (of course it wasn't strange, it was God!) was this wasn't part of the sermon, he just said "let me give you an example of God's timing....when I was pastoring a small church in Mississippi, there was a woman who prayed for her wayward son for years, she died and a year later he not only came to know the Lord but became a Baptist minister! Some people said her prayers weren't answered because it didn't happen while she was alive, but that's not true, her prayers were answered.....just in God's time."
And of course we know God's timing is perfect, He never shows up late, He's never surprised by what's going on, He has a plan! That just helped me so much because I too have been praying for years for my son to turn his life over to Christ and then live according to His word. I know God has a plan for my son's life. I know God will do what God does, and I know He won't be late. I may not live to see it, I hope I do, but I am learning the hard, hard way that His ways are not my ways!
Thanks to Jennifer over at Meditations and Musings for the spread the love award! I must confess that I had a hard time getting it onto my blog and that obviously I'm not linking to Jennifer (sorry), but I'm working on learning!
The maker of this award says,
"I have met so many lovely and very talented ladies here in Blogdom, what more can I do or say to express my humbled heart to each, than to give all my dearest readers and friends a special award filled with love. So, spread the love dear ones, spread the love to those you love."
She also gave me this one too.......
Thanks Jennifer! I am truly honored! I'll pass them along when I can figure out how! :(
