The older I get, the more time seems to slip by so quickly. I feel like I’ve blinked and another school year has flown by. There never seems to be enough time to do all the things I’d like to do. It’s a precious commodity in which I have to decide how to prioritize and spend it. One thing I am certain of, God’s timing is without constraint. I feel pressure that time is eluding me, and yet, God isn’t bothered by the world’s timeline.
In order to have hope in God’s timing, I have to trust that He is working for my good. He sees value in waiting, and what waiting will produce character-wise.
God is in the business of making things beautiful, and to Him, the most beautiful things in creation are made slowly and strategically. God takes His time because He loves all the details, and cannot fathom leaving out any.
Everyone seems to be in a season of waiting in one way or another. What is God doing while you wait? What parts of your heart are becoming more beautiful in this process?
This month’s free printable is to remind us that God is making us beautiful in His timing and not ours. Let’s pray for hope and to trust Him while we are waiting.
