Challenging and confusing. Seems simultaneously like forever and a flash in the pan. Very lonely or filled with company. An ocean filled with faith crests and doubt troughs that sweep you over in each wave of emotion.
God’s timing can be terrifying to contemplate “When?” “Where?” “How?” His timing shines a light the worst aspects of your character in the process of pruning you to become His best. During the wait you learn about your flawed condition, human, and you’re brought to humility.
The entire universe, and all that inhabits it, is waiting for God’s timing, whether or not you have faith. God’s timing is spontaneous and drags on. It is vague until the concrete is revealed. It’s similar to the sensation of finding your way around a pitch black room with a blindfold on and ear plugs in.
God’s timing only goes on three-day vacations once a year. Twice if you’re really waiting for even the smallest miracle. His timing aches and it soothes. It elevates and pummels. It is seldom easy. It is clarifying. God’s timing is wise but can seem facetious.
It will only be understood when it is to be.
“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.“
(Isaiah 55:11 NLT)
