God's Timing Part 2 - The saga continues!
Scripture: “And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?” Luke 18:7
Timing Continued - God cares about us!
Note! If you have not read the Post "God's Timing Part 1" you will enjoy the second part better if you do!
It was a Sunday afternoon, we had just had lunch and dad asked me if I would like to go back to Copemish tomorrow to see if another horse would come through the auction ring. I was still angry, upset; disappointed and thought the trip would be wasted. I had just missed “my horse” last Monday and was not very confident we would have any success tomorrow. “Well, I guess we could try” I muttered.
On Monday we went to the auction. We took our seats near the front of the auction ring. The first couple of horses that came through were not what I was looking for. Then this horse came in and my eyes bugged open wide! It was the same horse from last week! My dad immediately looked around. Sure enough the man who was a friend of the owner placed the first bid – 100 dollars! My dad did not bid. Instead he went up a few rows and sat next to the man and he whispered something to the man. My father than placed the next bid, 116 dollars! My father then turned to the man and watched him. “Going once, going twice, sold for 116 dollars,” said the auctioneer. My dad got up, came down to where I was sitting, never smiled, and simply said: “lets see if we can get a new saddle with what’s left.” We did! If I had got that horse the week before I could not have afforded the saddle.
This may not be a “miracle” to you, but for this 14-year-old boy at the time, it was huge. To this day, decades later, I still remember this event and trust God’s timing in my life. He never has failed me.
Prayer Thought: God, I am grateful for your timing in my past and trust my future to you.
