God's timing is always perfect. This is so hard to understand when you are going through trials.
We've all been there. No one is immune to hard times and trials.
We want Him to rescue us and answer our prayers immediately. Sometimes He does. Other times, it may take months or even years. Then there are times when He carries us through the most painful and sorrowful circumstances. Lets face it...Life is Hard!
We play things back in our mind so many times and think, "What if I had done this differently?". But get this: Our trials and hard times come as no surprise to Him. They are all part of His perfect plan.
My Life is but a weaving
between my Lord and me;
I cannot choose the colors
He worketh steadily.
Oft times He weaves in sorrow
And I, in foolish pride,
Forget He sees the finished work,
And I the under side.
Not til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll the tapestry
And explain the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the Weaver's skillful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.
Looking back, we may even be able to see how everything fell into its perfect place because of His perfect timing.
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
