The Wrong Timing
I was in the middle of a large project on my computer when it suddenly lost all my work. Complain? Yep, I did. There was no one here to hear me, but I did speak loudly to the empty room. Lash out? Nope. I didn’t throw my computer or anything else for that matter (although I have been known to rapidly toss a pen or two across a room in the past). I put my work down and I walked away. I sat quietly and talked my frustrations over with Jesus. In half an hour I went back and discovered that the issue was about the wrong timing. The right timing means that I need to wait and begin again later. I am thankful that by waiting and praying, God helped me discover my timing dilemma. Psalm 4:4-5 MSG “Complain if you must, but don’t lash out. Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking. Build your case before God and wait for his verdict.” Frustration can be frustrating. Oh yes, it most certainly can. When we get frustrated, it’s definitely a bummer, but it’s not the end of the world. Talking over the issue with Jesus is the best option for our frustrations. His counsel is always
timely and full of hopefulness. The right timing is always God’s timing.
