I have been learning that God's timing for things are usually faster than I would think would be appropriate. Let me give an example, when I shaved my head last summer with my neighbor who had cancer, I knew that I was going to shave my head someday, but I thought it was going to be in 5 years or something like that. The Lord had put the desire to start our own business...I was thinking maybe in a couple of years...as you can see we are doing that now.
Now for a small example, today I was asked if I would volunteer in the children's nursery. I told them that I was thinking about a new ministry that started for kids with special needs. I got the paper work to fill out and headed off to church...I was there for about 5 mintues when they found me and said that they needed my help because a little boy came today who needs one on one help. Wow - fast volunteer time!
I had the privilege of spending time and worshiping with a little boy who has autism. You know God made this precious child...He knit him together in his mother's womb just like you and me. I marveled over that fact while I held him closely through the worship singing..."better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere." He is perfectly made in God's image. I am so thankful that we have a creative God who knows no boundaries of love. I was blessed today. I know that I learned more about my creator in this lesson than sitting through the sermon today. God is amazing and I am thankful He came to earth to glorify himself and save a wretch like me.
