In His Time

You can find inspiration in the craziest places. The quote below is from the cardboard backing of a calendar published by Dayspring —
When the time was right,
the sea parted,
the walls fell down,
the lions went hungry,
the sun stood still,
the star appeared,
the waves were calmed,
the stone was rolled away,
the Lord ascended…
And when the time is right, the King of Kings will return.
God is never early and He’s never late –
He’s always right on time and His plans for you are good.
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
I needed to be reminded of this after receiving a rejection letter yesterday from a literary agent; he’s not interested in representing my novel, Moon’s Mercy, to publishers. Ah, yes, to believe the Lord makes all things beautiful in their time!
