I'm a big fan of the saying "God's timing is perfect" because it sort of takes the pressure off of me feeling I have to get everything done myself. When I start feeling like if I could just do a little better or try a little harder, things will work the way I want, I remind myself of this saying. It is my job to worship God and let Him work out the details. As I've been reading in my journal and back through my blog, a few things have stood out.
1. I needed to stop waving Romans 8:28 in God's face. In my journal on March 2nd, I told Him that I know He is the God Who Heals and that I know He is the Potter. He can use whatever He wants in my life to glorify Him, even if we have different ideas of what that should be.
2. Re-reading Backseat Drivers (blog post in February), I can see that God was instructing me to wait for Him and stop trying to go places I wasn't ready to go.
3. I can't imagine big enough all the things God wants to use each of us for. How amazing that the God of the Universe wants to use me at all."Now to him by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be the glory." Ephesians 3:20-21
My biggest take-away is this: I think God is giving me something to do for Him because it will help others, when in fact it takes my faith and trust in Him to a whole new level. He knows me. He sees me. He loves me. Wow!
