Timing is Everything

To be at the right place at the right time, or receive the right answer at the right time all seems a bit ‘airy fairy’, but there is so much truth about timing.

If we leave home five minutes later for the morning school run the time it takes to travel is different, the distance is still the same, only the timing changes. Should we wake up a bit later than normal, the same amount of steps need to be taken to start the day, but the time to do so is now different. And so can be the stress levels!

So who can we trust with our time?

As much as I have tried to circumstance my life by trying to be at the right place at the right time, I can only do what I can or that which is in my control, and then….. I wait. What more can be done other than that?

The other day I was listening intently to the words of a song playing on my new Country CD (yes I am admitting that I am a fan of country music) and it got me thinking about how relevant this song is in my life, including with my walk with God and how things have a perfect time for happening.

I do my best and God will do the rest!

So I continue to stand in faith and wait for the perfect time to arrive…………… but oh boy the waiting time seems so quiet  (that is until I turn up the volume of the CD ) and so long!



The lyrics of the song:

“Timing Is Everything” by Garrett Hedlund

When the stars line up
And you catch a break
People think you’re lucky
But you know its grace

It can happen so fast
Or a little bit late
Timing is everything

You know I’ve had close calls
When it could’ve been me
I was young when I learned just how fragile life can be
I lost friends of mine
I guess it wasn’t my time
Timing is everything

And I could’ve been the child that God took home,
And I would’ve been one more unfinished song
And when it seems a rhyme is hard to find
That’s when one comes along
Just in time

I remember that day
When our eyes first met
You ran into the building to get out of the rain
Cause you were soaking wet
And as I held the door
You wanted to know my name
Timing is everything

And I could’ve been another minute late
And you’d never would’ve crossed my path that day
And when it seems true love is hard to find
That’s when love comes along
Just in time

You can call it fate
Or destiny
Sometimes it really seems like its a mystery

Cause you can be hurt by love
Or healed by the same
Timing is everything

It can happen so fast
Or a little too late
Timing is everything

Book DEBrief

"Undaunted" by Christine Caine

A book I will read again!

The story that Christine shares is personal and impacting, full of honesty and openness. I related to so much of what she had to share and was extremely encouraged.

Christine is with no doubt a woman of faith, but it is the way in which she openly shares the journey of faith, including the thoughts of doubt and question and the wonder of how it will all work out that for me was the greatest encouragement.

I often feel like a lesser woman of faith when I begin to doubt, yet what I learnt from this real life story is that is the action which we take that will bring us closer to the purpose we were designed for.

I was also reminded that, from my own dark and depressive experiences, I can be used to empower and equip others; but it takes the desire to not only want change but to hang on tight to it, grip it well and move forward with it every day.

This is my first Christine Caine book, one I picked up from a recommendation, and I am so glad that I did. Christine writes in an easy to read fashion, but I found it was her honesty and humbleness before God that captured me.

I do recommend this book as a great read, but be prepared to be challenged whilst also very encouraged to become someone who is UNDAUNTED!
