Timing: "the selecting of the best time or speed for doing something in order to achieve the desired or maximum result."
Thursday was not a good day for me. I woke up fighting. And I wasn't fighting cancer; I was fighting God.
I don't want to take this medicine. I don't want to rest. I don't want to have radiation. I don't want to be a sick person. I don't want to have surgery. I don't want to feel fatigued. I don't want to...
I cried a lot of tears on Thursday. They came easily, and unwanted.
At the end of the day the doorbell rang. It was Lynn, from our church, bringing dinner. I had forgotten she was coming. After putting all the food on the counter she handed me a gift bag and quickly left. I walked back inside and looked at the bag. This is what it said, "...put my tears in thy bottle. Psalm 56:8"
God knew exactly what I needed and He knew exactly when I needed it. Why do I so easily forget?
"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." Psalm 56:8
"He has made everything beautiful in its time." Ecclesiastes 3:11
God's timing was perfect this day. It will be perfect every day of my life. Lord, help me to remember.
