God is always on Time…………NOT!

 “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.”- John 11:32 

Since when have you known God to be an on time God?

If God were on time I’d still be married, many of my loved ones would still be alive, I wouldn’t be so late on some of my bills, and I would enjoy my job all the time.  The thing is….I lost my marriage, went thru depression, lost more than a few people, am not current on all my bills, and there are days where I get terribly discouraged on my job. NO! GOD DID NOT SHOW UP ON TIME!

 But some of them said, “Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have kept this man also from dying ?”- John 11:37

While others will tell you stories of God showing up mightily and saving and delivering at just the right moment, I would challenge them on the assertion that God is on time. God is NEVER on time, rather, God is always ETERNAL!

God will seek, act on, and do what is in harmony with His ETERNAL purpose and our ETERNAL pleasure.

God will deliver you over to what will work out for your infinite , abundant, joyous delight 50,000 years from now, even if He must allow what will feel like infinite evil and pain for the next 50 years of your life on this earth.

  I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices ; My flesh also will dwell securely. 10 For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol ; Nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay. 11 You will make known to me the path of life ; In Your presence is fullness of joy ; In Your right hand there are pleasures foreverPsalm 16

Chose to be Awesome

 

I can’t speak to the ‘why’ that we are sad but one thing I know for certain is that we often remain in the blues because we don’t choose to get up and do something. I’ve never been a performance oriented person but there are clearly times where we have to make a conscious decision to get up and do ‘something’.

Sometimes it starts with little things. Wash dishes, clean out the car, make cold calls, ANYTHING!

Psychologists say that there is stored energy and emotion locked into every activity that you do. Have you ever tried to study or work but couldn’t because your desk was unorganized but as soon as it was cleaned off you were excited and able to focus? Our minds can easily tie up energy and mental capability by getting stuck on something that we can’t change or don’t like.

Please understand that being ‘awesome’ does not come from having great results as much as it does in choosing to get up and carry on with your life instead of sulking. Granted there are times and seasons where we mourn and reflect but there is always a time to get up and start over.

Start your way with the small and mundane and be awesome at something RIGHT NOW!

You Rock!
