~It's All in the Timing~

I remember when our Pastor talked about what was "normal" vs what was not (for ex. miracles and such).

He made a great point.

Normalcy was set by God~so for Him to bypass or go beyond normal should be understandable/expected.

What we regard as "normal" was created and set and can be "unset" anytime.

I'm sure I didn't say this as eloquently as he did...but hopefully I conveyed the gist of it.

I purposely "fit" a panel to look like it doesn't fit.

Sometimes we think and act as if God is on OUR time table and should fit in our plans.

In reality, He's on His own clock and we need to fit in His.

His rules.

His boundaries.


We might look a little "off" centered and weird at times when we are in His will (to others, anyway).

In God's world-one day- we will fit PERFECTLY. ;)

"Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."
1 Corinthians 13:12

Blessings my friends~

This is awesome, Marlena. Both your art and your words are so wonderful. I had a real answer to prayer this friend who is in kidney failure got a donor match, and will get her new kidney in October. God is SO GOOD, and He certainly is the God of miracles!!
Thanks for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday. It means so much to me when you are able to share your work with us in the challenges. Have a blessed day!

Amen! I believe that God answers all prayers. However, His answer may be a "yes," a "no," or a "later," depending on what He knows is best for us. We just need to believe and be patient. Blessings!

Your words are so true!! Sometimes we try to fit God's plans into our own little box rather than fitting our plans into His ultimate plan. All things work for good for all those who trust Him. He makes all things His time.

Great use of the clocks. I love that verse. A great reminder. Thanks for joining the ODBD Shining the Light challenge this week!!
