Are We Late or Right On Time?

I should have written this post last month, maybe. I certainly could have written it before now…I just never got to it. Perhaps I procrastinate too much, but then again, perhaps it wasn’t the right time.
They say there is a time and season for everything under the sun. A time to be born and a time to die, and then a set time for everything in between (never mind that there still isn’t any documented schedule being circulated, at least none that I’ve been given). So, I often struggle with time. When to move, when to be still. When to reach out, when to withdraw. When to push harder, when to relent. If there is a time for it all, then why am I not privy to what time it is right now?
To be truthful, I’m not sure about this thing we Christians call ‘God’s timing’. If it’s his timing then is it possible to be late for what he is doing? Does it make sense to be anxious? Will it help at all to rush? I doubt it.
I’ve reviewed my life a great number of times, and without exception, I could not predict a single one of my most life-altering events, not even one, yet I was somehow in the right place, at the right time, fully present in the precise moment that I needed to be. I was never late. Even when I didn’t know where I was going or how to get there, I always arrived at my critical moments in perfect time.
God’s timing is perfect, not because good things happen, or because bad things are averted. His timing is perfect because he moves you forward, no matter what, ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
No matter what is going on in this very moment, let it move you forward. You’ll get to where are meant to be and you won’t be late.
