when your chickens don’t hatch

and the pot you are so steadfastly watching doesn’t boil   . . .   what to do?  what to do?

become a goat herder and eat cold soup?   or   . . .   continue to wait and to watch,  hoping and believing that you will have more chickens and hot soup soon  –   or

you could turn up the heat on the stove and on those unhatched eggs    . . .   but if it’s not God’s timing you could end up with burned soup and dead unhatched chickens

with God timing seems to be very important, indeed – timing is everything as we so often say  . . .

so better that I should,  “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”   (Psalm 27:14)

it is hard to wait and it is harder yet to “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him;   . . .   those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.”    (Psalm 37:7-9)

so I wait because I am told in Acts 1:7, “It is not for you (me) to know the times or dates the Father has set by His own authority.”         but   . . .

“For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter, though a man’s misery weighs heavily upon him.”  (Ecclesiastes 8:6)

I can know that God’s timing is always perfect, He’s never early nor late  –  “The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food at the proper time.  You open Your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.”   (Psalm 145:15-16)

Mine is to wait on Him.   “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: (bring it to pass)”    (Psalm 37:5)

waiting, hoping, trusting, believing,

sincerely,      Grace Day
