Blessed Lord’s Day to all at Amy’s Place.
Haven’t been able to sit long at the ‘puter - lingering pain around the area of the incision for the past two weeks.

I’ve been spending a little time making a gift for my dr. - a set of windchimes. Can only work on it for half an hour at a time.

Blessings to all from the DD household.

God’s Timing

May 7, 2012

Pastor Audley Black’s church near the south coast of Jamaica has been in a building program since at least 2005. That was the first time I visited his church and saw that they were expanding. The last time I was there—in the spring of 2011—some of the walls were up. By that summer, they had started on the roof. When I suggested to Pastor Black that perhaps the church would be done by 2013 when I thought I might return, he said it was a possibility.

There was no hint of disappointment that this project could take 8 years or longer! No, Pastor Black and his people are excited about what God is doing, and they’re patient with His timing.

We are often not that patient. We want our church to grow quickly, our young people to mature right away, and our problems to be fixed today.

Maybe we need to be reminded that some things take time—God’s time. For instance, when the Israelites first left Egypt, God sent them on the long route to the Promised Land (Ex. 13:17-18). During that time He prepared them, taught them, and challenged them.

In our microwave world, we want everything done instantaneously. But sometimes that’s not God’s plan. Let’s seek God’s help and learn to accept His timing.

He does not lead me year by year,
Nor even day by day;
But step by step my path unfolds;
My Lord directs my way. —Ryberg
God’s timetable may move slowly, but it does move surely.

Read: Exodus 13:17-22

For every matter there is a time and judgment. —Ecclesiastes 8:6
Bible in a Year:
Nehemiah 1-3

“ ‘Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,’ says the Lord God. ‘Therefore turn and live!’ ” (18:31-32).”

Thank you Teenie.

I was falsely accused of “sabotaging” a child’s performance, and accused of being “Snippy and uncaring”. Of course i was also fired. Which is fine with me.

I worked so hard on that recital, and this is what I get.

I felt about ready to give up.

I got wonderful reports from several othe parents, so I KNOW it’s not “Me”, but it still hurts like the dickens.
