Perfect Timing



I saw her.

She has been through surgeries

and is now in rehab,

and I finally got to see her.

I was going to visit her at the "PERFECT" TIME,

but the "PERFECT" TIME never comes.

NOW was the PERFECT TIME,

as my hubby and I were running errands

and he suggested my visiting my friend.

I didn't think it was right to just pop in on her,

but my hubby, so filled with wisdom,

knew this was the PERFECT TIME.

I walked into her room and she looked up

and the tears were flowing,

from both of us.

It was the PERFECT TIME.

Talk about a GOD APPOINTMENT,

because GOD planned it.

After a time of prayer, laughing, and crying,

she so wanted to brush her teeth,

as no one had been in her room yet to help her.

So I followed her to the sink.

As she was brushing her teeth,

I began taking off a bracelet that I was wearing

as I felt GOD speaking to my heart

that I was to give it her.

It just wasn't about the bracelet

as it was about what was engraved on the inside~

"For she is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future"

(Proverbs 31:25)

I didn't know if she would wear it, but I knew her heart needed to hear HIS WORDS.

Well, as soon as she finished her teeth cleaning,

she said the hardest part of being in the rehab

is that she had lost her "________"~

a word that she couldn't recall.

As she was trying to think of the word,

it came loud and clear to me as

I said the word "DIGNITY",

when I wasn't even thinking about the verse.

And she shouted YES!

Now tell me that this wasn't PERFECT TIMING,

as there in my hand was the bracelet

with the word DIGNITY engraved on it.

The wild part about this

is that right before I left my home

I felt a nudging that made me grab the bracelet and place it on my wrist.

Talk about a GOD APPOINTMENT~

HIS PERFECT TIMING that HE PLANNED

ahead of time

without my knowing,

but HIS KNOWING.

And then when she was sitting on the bed,

still talking about DIGNITY,

she saw my eyes pop out of my head with excitement,

as I started to tell her about the verse

and then handed her the bracelet.

Oh talk about tears, from both of us.

Oh talk about GOD showing up

at the PERFECT TIME

for one of HIS CHILDREN

who was suffering so

as HE showered her with a blessing that blew us both away.

As I placed it on her wrist

she was speechless

as GOD filled the room.

As I left her room in awe,

there was my hubby waiting for me

(as he knew that it wasn't his time to see her).

Oh he then got an earful of the

GOD APPOINTMENT

and then a big

THANK YOU for his responding

to the soft whisper of

GOD

that brought me to her,

Oh my friend,

don't wait for the PERFECT TIME

because the PERFECT TIME is right NOW

because GOD is in every moment.

For NOW is the PERFECT TIME

to embrace the soft whisper of your

FATHER who created you,

who loves you so,

that HE never leaves you

and is always working

behind the scenes

and in the scenes

and through all the characters who are in your story.

You are VALUABLE.

GOD needs you to be the you who HE created you to be,

because you have a role in HIS STORY

that no one else can play

because there is no one like you.

This isn't cliche, as it is truth.

No one has your FINGERPRINT.

Look at your hands. Look at your fingers.

FINGERPRINTED BY GOD.

NOW look at another~

FINGERPRINTED BY GOD.

For NOW is the PERFECT TIME

to look up and say

THANK YOU GOD

and NOW go and

do something for another

or say something to another

or just show up for another

or maybe you need another right now.

For NOW is the

PERFECT TIME

to embrace the TRUTH

that you are

"clothed with strength & DIGNITY

and laugh without fear of the future"

because GOD has you in the palm of HIS HANDS

because

you were made in the

"IMAGE OF GOD" (listen to the song below)
