Her thoughts travelled back to the day she began her course in nursing. Excitedly she had opened her textbooks and over the course had applied what she learned to the work with her clients. With tears she had found out after two years that her business needed to be closed as the financing was drying up. When she finished on the final day she remmebered the man who had been waiting at the busstop as she boarded for the ride to her home. "Miss... hope you don't mind but you look so sad." After she explained her story he looked intently at her and reminded her of the Scripture which promises honour to those who honour the Father. She felt strangely moved and thanked the Lord for His reminder of His care for her.
Twelve months after this heartbreak, the phonecall had come out of the blue. "Are you Diane Ealskil?" Her name had been referred to the mission agency by a client she had previously worked with. After the initial interviews the work had fallen into place and she now found herself in a new country using all of the natural abilities God had placed in her heart and head.
Now as the service began to draw to a close she remembered the critical lesson learned and thought of timing and how if she had run ahead of God she would have missed the wonderful ministry opening that He had provided at exactly the right time and in the right way. "Thank You Lord", she prayed softly, "Your timing is always best even when Your providences are difficult to understand and to bear." Her tear stained eyes lifted towards Heaven as she basked in the comfort of His presence and fellow believers in Christ.
