Title: Our Schedules are in God's Hands   Send to a Friend
Date: 05/07/2012    

Welcome to another addition of Women of Wisdom's (W.O.W) e-letter! W.O.W's mission is to encourage you to live the divine purpose for your life! Expect to see a W.O.W. e-letter monthly and be sure to pass them on to your friends.

When I was younger and still lived at home, there was one thing I never needed. An alarm clock.  If I needed to get up for school, I could count on my mother to sound the alarm.  If it was time to go to church - my mom could be heard singing throughout the house, "Rise and shine and give God the glory!"  And if that didn''t work, eventually a gentle nudge would be felt with her soft voice encouraging me to wake up.  She woke me up for Catechism classes on Saturday mornings and when I was a teenager she would wake me to be sure I got to my summer job on time.  I never needed to worry about missing anything.  All I had to say was "Mom, I need to get up for ''thus and such'' ", and I knew she was faithful to ensure I was up for wherever I needed to go.

In many ways, God''s faithfulness is like that.  Sometimes we reach seasons in life when we believe we have arrived too late or missed it altogether.  And yet, God is faithful to us.  He ensures us that we are precisely where we need to be when we need to be there.  He doesn''t allow us to sleep though life when we are trusting in Him.  He knows our appointed times and sounds the alarm to get us up and moving in the right direction.  Yes, sometimes it feels late to us or it may even feel like the timing is off, or we''ve taken a detour.  But our confidence comes from knowing He holds the schedules of our lives in His hands.   So how can we be late if our faith is placed in Him?

When we are tempted to think time has run out, we need only be reminded of what God has said:  "The steps of a man (or woman) are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand."  (Psalm 37:23-24)  And if that were not enough reassurance, He also promises this:

"The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations." (Psalm 33:11)

"Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in your book all the days of my life were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them." (Psalm 139:16)

Our schedules are established by God and each of the days of our lives are already written down before we were even born!  With these promises, peace can reign and we can live life confidently.  Our part is to trust and believe that God, our father is also our faithful timekeeper.  When we submit to His authority and His timing we will always be right on time.

Be Blessed!
