In the study of Genesis 16 and writing about it yesterday in the post Trust in
His Perfect Timing, the lesson
for me is that we should be careful not to force the issue. We should put our
attention on God and do things according to His timing; to trust Him to work
situations out for us.
God may get our attention in many ways. There are times of the year that inspire
and bring out memories; the end of
summer when football starts, the fall and the smell of pecan pie, the winter
when the leaves have fallen and you look up into the cold night sky and see
more stars than you could ever count. The spring and the memories of playing
baseball and the summers going to the water park; you can count on the seasons.
They are coming, you can depend on it, but they never are exactly the same
because life and how we see things is always changing.
