I stopped to look at features on my phone. Playing with the stopwatch and timer I watched the numbers scroll swiftly by. While my eyes were on these numbers I remembered what they represented; seconds, minutes and hours of our days. Sobering thought but I was more curious to try something more. While watching the timer I tried to speak aloud, “now” for any number I wanted to hit on. I missed it lots.
It was a good lesson. I reflected upon different moments in my life; the times I wanted things to happen for me or for others. God has his own stopwatch and timer. I may think I am ready but He may not. I may even presume to think someone else is ready when they aren’t.
Hab 2:3 At the time I have decided, My words will come true. You can trust what I say about the future. It may take a long time, but keep on waiting—it will happen
