TITLE: MY TIMES, O LORD, ARE IN YOUR HANDS

This experience changed my life and I have used it in several devotional writings.
On my way home from visiting my son, I was traveling down Hwy. 6. It is a long stretch of road from Interstate 20 to Waco, Texas. There are small farming communities along the way, but not too many cell phone or radio signals. It was
Sunday morning and I was scanning the radio to find something to listen to. I picked up a church out of Waco and the preacher was just beginning to start his sermon titled "My Times, O Lord, Are In Your Hands" taken from Psalms 31:14,15. It was about worry and uncertainty in our lives and how we have no control over situations. Everything is totally in God's hands.
I really needed to hear this because I had been through a lot of "what ifs". I was worried about my mom, my kids and grandkids,worried about my health. I thought to myself "Gee, this preacher must have been reading my diary."
An hour passed and I was once again searching for something to listen to. A station out of Ft. Worth was having some great gospel music on and I listened to it for about 10 minutes. The pastor began his message,"My sermon today comes from Psalms 31 and is titled
THOU ART MY GOD. MY TIMES ARE IN THY HAND." Wow!
What are the odds of two different preachers having the same message that my radio picks up? I began listening and once again, it was just what my spirit needed to hear.
I turned onto the Interstate and headed west. I knew that I would have my choice of stations and began to search again. I began listening to a church out of Abilene. They were having an all day service, with singing and dinner. It was about 2:00 in the afternoon and I was enjoying some good old time gospel singing.
About 20 minutes into the singing, the pastor began to speak. He said "I had not planned to preach this time of the day, but there is someone
listening today who needs to hear and understand what God has given me. My message is from Psalms 31: "But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my GOd. My times are in thy hand."
I stopped on the side of the road and began to cry. I felt like a heavy weight had been lifted off of me. I finally realized that God is in total control over EVERYTHING in my life. My mom's time is in His hands. My children's times are in His hands. My grandchildren's times are in His hands. There is no need to worry. There is no need for anxiety. There is no need for uncertainty. MY TIMES ARE IN HIS HANDS. Amen and amen.
