The Time is, Now, if You Plan to Do the Will of God.

I often wonder what life would be like if I actually accomplished all of the lofty goals that I have on my dream list. Actually, there has only been a couple of specific things on the list, that I have kept revisiting year after year, for decades, because the timing never seems to be quite right.

“To everything there is a season…” the bible instructs us in Ecclesiastes, and the perfect season has not revealed itself. It doesn’t keep me from continually working out all of the details for it to come to the forefront in my life, but as always, life takes precedence over dreams. I am resolved with this fact, because I know that the Lord is working out all things for my good, and when it does come to light, it will seem that it happened suddenly.

I am thankful that the Lord has entrusted me to share my heart week after week in this venue, even though sometimes I wonder what impact it has made on the ones who actually take their time to read what the Lord gives me to share.

I keep reminding myself that the time to do the will of God is, now. You hear the saying, “There’s no time like the present,” and this is so true because the past can’t be changed, and we don’t know what the future holds. Then, the Lord assures me that he holds my future and that encourages me to keep writing when I am unsure of it’s effectiveness. It isn’t up to me to determine what will be anointed or particularly helpful for someone, my sole purpose is to write what the Lord gives me week after week, and he directs the words to those precious souls who need to hear what I have to share.

The Lord does have a sense of humor. The other day we went to Hibachi Grill, and I opened up a fortune cookie. The message made me laugh out loud, “You have a charming way with words and should write a book.” Seriously? Whether it was a random thing, or a directive from the Lord, it did get my attention. So, is it time to dust off the manuscripts that have been languishing in my files? Is the time, now? There is much to pray about.

About gracemorganwriter

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
