God's timing IS perfect.

We hear this statement a lot. But how many times do we doubt God? I know I have! I have the problem of grabbing back my insufficient feelings and not letting Him really take care of it.

This weekend, I had a big case of God's timing. On Friday, we had Reward Day at school. As a itinerant teacher, I had to cover for all of the teachers at the time I would normally have had their class. This resulted in a day in the heat and on my feet for about 6 hours. It was exhausting. Then, I had scheduled to have dinner with a new friend and we chatted until late, so I never got home until 11:30 that night. 

The perfect timing came to fruition on Saturday. I was supposed to go out with a special friend that I hadn't seen in months. I was so excited about our plans that when I received a call canceling our plans earlier in the week, that I was truly disappointed. Needless to say, I was so exhausted from the day before, that when Saturday arrived, I was almost glad to have the chance to rest. Three naps later, I figured it out. It was God's timing. God didn't make my friend sick. Instead, the timing of his sickness and my exhaustion worked together. 

So, as I wait on God to let me know if I'm going to be single forever or find the man He wants in my life, I have to keep reminding myself that God is in control. He knows when things are supposed to happen. His timing is completely perfect.
