Divine Appointments

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Do you get irritated if you have to wait? I used to but lately I learn to be still and see what assignment God may have for me. Maybe someone I need to give a word of cheer or hope to. Maybe those mere inconveniences have an underlying purpose to them. You know sort of like being in the right place at the right time. We all have probably had 'interesting' encounters when things maybe didn't turn out on our time table. I can think of many. Once was getting to pray with a cancer patient at airport. 

Be willing to be used by God. Stay flexible and peaceful. Don't explode when your schedule is thrown off as there may be reasons for it.  Getting all wound tight will only cause to get a person agitated and frustrated. Look at these times as opportunities maybe to shine for Jesus and meet needs. 

You just never know when the Lord has an assignment for you so keep your eyes and ears open. 

PRAYER: Forgive me Lord when I go to an appointment and have to wait. Sometimes I realize things happen for a reason so help me stay peaceful and try to smile. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. Becky: I learned this waiting process. When I go to a doctor appointment, I always take something to read. I am earning not to get rattled when my schedule changes. It has taken me some time to realize that I am not in control--Jesus is.
