It seems like I have been waiting on more than just Spring lately. Answers to long standing prayer requests. Unresolved health issues that won't go away. I know that I am not the only one. There are many who seem to be waiting on God. It is easy to get discouraged at times. When you are in pain and the answers don't seem to come.
This quote from Beth Moore's "Wising Up" sums it all up: "God is never late. He misses a few good opportunities to be early, but He is never late." So if anyone out there reading this needs some encouragement, please know that God is always on time. He doesn't work by our clocks or schedules. His way is perfect. Isaiah 55:8 and 9 tells us: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
And like Spring, He will show up when His time is right and in His perfect way.
