I've come to the realization that God's timing is much more perfect than any of my planned out activities for the next week, month, or year.
I have quite a few examples of this, but most importantly I know that God will work everything for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Maybe this only works when hindsight is 20/20, but I had an idea during this past year that God was intricately weaving small threads of his plan into my life.
And looking back over these past six months I see nothing but grace and provision in EVERY aspect of my life. With new friends, a stronger love for my family, and even a couple marriages I have seen how God yearns to show me his love. Whether it be as simple as a hug from a loved one or a smile from a stranger, God makes himself known to me.
I was asked today how I had been treating God, and my answer wasn't what I would have liked it to be, but it was honest - and in a way I was giving myself a small tap on the shoulder reminding myself that I needed some QT with my Creator. It's so easy for me to fall out of any routine I may have started with devotionals or prayers, etc. and sometimes I wonder why. But at the same time God does not change and his view of me is no less, which gives me a peace that comforts my stressed out life.
I like peace.
