What Day Is It?

The Burning Question:

What does your family make that is better than what you can find in restaurants?

Morning Devotional:

I spent much of the afternoon yesterday testing out some new dessert recipes. It was a project that should have been a lot of fun, except for the fact that my research wasn’t producing the results I was hoping for. None of my desserts were turning out the way I anticipated. 

I checked the ingredients and adjusted the amounts. I did everything I could to get things just right. After thinking through all of the variables and possible remedies, I finally determined the source of my problem. Time. I was rushing the whole process. After taking a little more time to mix the batter and adding a couple of minutes of cooking time, voila! I finally had the perfect dessert confection on my plate.

My kitchen adventure had me thinking a lot about God’s timing and how often we want to speed up God’s clock. God’s timing is very different from ours, though. Remember how Peter wrote in 2 Peter chapter three that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day,” and that He is “not slow… as some count slowness?” How can we trust in our timing when God’s hands are on the clock? We can’t. Let’s put our trust in Him and let Him bring things together in His perfect timing.
