The Universe, the Creator, or God’s timing is always Perfect!

super_nurse[1]When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I had a great experience at church.

I had left my money at home.  I had a $20 bill in my other purse that I had left.  I didn’t realize I left it until I went in my purse to grab my money for the first offering and I didn’t have any money in my purse.

I immediately became anxious.

I wanted to be a grown up.  I didn’t want to ask my mom for any money.  If I asked my mom for money, I knew that she was only going to give me $5.  I had wanted to put the whole $20 in the offering.

I didn’t know what to do.

The moment for the offering was coming up and I didn’t have any money to put into the envelope.  I finally thought to myself that I have ask my mom for money.

Right as the ushers were getting up to pass out the envelopes, my dad turns around and passes a $20 bill to me.  He mouths that the money is from Mother Jones.  I got Mother Jones attention and mouthed thank you to her.  I put the whole $20 bill into the offering.  I felt like a little boss when I dropped the envelope into the basket.

This situation let me know that God’s timing is perfect.  I didn’t tell anyone that I had left my money at home.  There was no way that Mother Jones or my parents knew that I was anxious about not having any money.

God, the universe, or the Creator ( who ever or what ever you call it) has perfect timing.

I’ve also learned that what God wants God gets.

I never wanted to move when I was little.  Even if we were moving to a bigger house.  I didn’t like the idea of moving because I was being taken out of my comfort zone.

I would pray and pray that we wouldn’t move.

Fortunately for me, we still moved.  That taught me a valuable.

It’s God’s will and not my will.

If it were up to me, I wouldn’t struggle and my life would be easy.  If that were true, then I wouldn’t learn and grow.  I still don’t like conflict to this day but that is a part of growing up.  No one would misunderstand me.  Also if it were up to me, I wouldn’t be waiting on my future husband to come into my life.  I would have met him in high school and we would be married right now.  That was not God’s plan for my life.  I am right where God wants me to be in my life and where I want to be too

I think that if most people would look at the struggles that they have had in their life, they would realize that the struggles made you a better person.  The struggles taught you a lesson that you may not have learned if you didn’t experience the struggles.

Experience is the best teacher.
