Have you spent your lifetime waiting for the right time? The right time to do this, the right time to do that?
In my perpetual calendar is the reading from Genesis 21:6-7 where Sarah declares she has given Abraham a son in his old age. He was 100 years old and the note on the calendar reminds the reader that he still had his most important and productive years ahead of him.
Donít spend a lifetime waiting for the right time to follow through on something, or even to start on what God has told you is your lifeís plan. This might be an inbuilt desire that has been growing over time, or a passion youíve held within but havenít shared or told anyone about. Unless God has told you to wait, then step out and get started. Even if you donít know how or where.
In doing the research, the planning, asking questions, seeking help, God will surround you with the right people and the right circumstances, but you canít get started until you take that first step. Cover each step and planning in prayer and communion with God, but make that move and get started. If you donít, you may miss your calling and God may place it upon someone else to get it happening.
After all, whatever we do, does not affect only us, but many others too.
And, in all that doing, or waiting, donít make the mistake of thinking youíre too young or too old. As long as youíre breathing, God can use you!
