Out of Thin Air

God’s timing is perfect. Sometimes we might not think so, but it always is. It can be hard to wait- whether it is for a husband, a child, or anything else. We don’t like to be patient. We think we need it now, or at least in our own time frame. But the truth is, the world operates on God’s time frame. Which, by the way, is much better than anything we could come up with. Again and again he has demonstrated his perfect timing.
I was about 14 or 15 years old. I had very few friends, was rejected by kids at church because of my beliefs, and felt very alone. Then one day, almost out of thin air, God sent me a friend. She lived in a totally different state, but we became close friends through email. He actually provided me with 2 close friends- at the very time I needed it most. His perfect timing.
Sometimes I wonder where God is going to find a husband for me. Will he just pull one out of thin air? He could. He provided friends for me seemingly out of thin air. Why not a husband? This is the God who made the world in 6 days- out of thin air. He saved me through his grace and mercy. He planned out the salvation of the world. Do I really think he can’t plan out my very small life? I must trust him. Trust that his will, his plan, and his timing are perfect. Because they are.
And once I truly trust him, he will make things happen in his time. Even if he has to pull someone out of thin air.

  1. Hi Brooke (and Tahirah)! :D I agree with you Brooke...that is how I feel as well. I am 24 now, still waiting on His timing for marriage and a family. :) I also waited for His timing with friends...I've grown up not exactly without any..but certainly not any really close and godly friends. Now, I have many sister in the Lord through blogging that I am very close to. :) It's hard to wait, but the bible says that we grow stronger through the waiting. ;) I can definitely attest to that! :D

    Thank you for your encouraging reminder my dear! :) That is just what I needed! :)

    God bless you and your blog ladies!

  2. Thank you Miss Rachel! I have found that it is so hard to wait, but when we do God rewards us immensely! How right you are when you say we grow stronger through the waiting. Very true!

    In Him,
