God's Timing

I having to remind myself constantly today of Isaiah 55:9 “ For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts"

I had an appointment today that I was sure was God arranged! I was going to go pop popcorn all day at the boys school with a woman that the circumstances around me knowing her might be called coincidence, but I know better than that! I know that the Lord has placed me in her path for a reason and I was convinced that today would be the day that I could talk to her about Him.

Wednesday, Hunter came home from Awana not feeling well and by Thursday was running a high fever. He was home all day yesterday, one sick little boy, sleeping off and on. Today he woke up still running a low grade fever. He is feeling much better, but obviously couldn't go to school today with a fever. I'm not complaining, quite the contrary! Hunter has never been this sick without having asthma flair up to the point of hospitalization. Lee and I have prayed and prayed over him that God would protect him from all the upper-respiratory junk going around, that this fever wouldn't trigger his asthma. And it hasn't!!!!! Our God is good!! So I'm not complaining, I am so very grateful!

But that said, I am disappointed that I couldn't go pop popcorn today. I was SO sure that was a God arranged appointment. But He reminds me all the time that His ways are much higher than mine and His thoughts much higher than my thoughts! I am reminded once again that God is not always "logical" to the human mind. He sees the whole picture, so we must trust Him in our day to day desicions and choices. I still know I have been placed in this woman's path for a purpose, I just need to be patient and wait on the Lord to arrange it all! And when He does, I will be ready!
