Timing.....

I love it when I'm reading a familiar passage a new idea jumps out at me. It's such a reminder that God's Word is "living"!

The other night, I was reading Genesis 1. Most kids in Sunday School learn the days of Creation, but there was a phrase that I had never really noticed before. Verse 14 says,

"And God said, 'Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.' "

We know about the sea and sky, the land animals and fish, the stars and the sun, but we overlook the fact that God created time!

I don't know about you, but I don't always live that way. I act as if I have a much better handle on the timing of my life's events. It's as if I think I know more about the seasons of life than the Creator himself.

His thoughts and ways are perfect! His timing is perfect - every. single. time, friends!
Obviously this is a lesson that I'm constantly learning. I recorded this video a couple years ago. I thought I'd share it again (mainly to remind myself!).

Rachel, what a great vlog! Loved it. I appreciate the good reminder and love the Walmart door analogy. I'm going to remember that for a long time.

Thanks, girl!! I go to Walmart enough that I'm reminded of it pretty often too! :)
