“God makes everything happen at the right time. Yet none of us can ever fully understand all he has done, and he puts questions in our minds about the past and the future.” –Ecclesiastes 3:11 (CEV).
Indeed, with God all things happen according to his will and purpose. If the seasons fall into compliance and the planets obey, how much more are we, small as we are, going to correspond? To each person God has planted something of a spiritual time clock. And it ticks away.
We’re drawn to thought and then to decision, and the decisions are never easy. The work required to get us there--to change--seems enormous, yet that is our individual and collective lot. Life is hard yet who wants to be dead? Even those who opt for suicide would prefer that life was better--they’d prefer to be alive if life was liveable for them. Life is a conundrum for all at some point or other.
We make our plans as bold as they are, filled with hope for sustained change. They do align with God’s; he’s prompted us thus far. We’re merely moving in tune with him half the time. The time for change is now. It has to be today, not tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes for Change, there is only today.
For change to mean anything tangible in order to bring an effect different from that experienced in the past, we must change, and do things differently, being prepared for the mild to serious discomfort effecting change might bring. Change is worth the discomfort provided we adhere to the pre-determined agenda.
