"He [Jesus] told them, "You don't get to know the time. Timing is the Father's business. What you'll get is the Holy Spirit." (Acts 1:7-8 The Message Paraphrase)
Guess what, dear readers? We have little control over the comings and goings in our lives. What we do have, though, is the Holy Spirit to guide us through these happenings.
When I was younger, and less experienced in this life :), I thought that one day I would wake up and everything would be perfect and just as I'd planned. I finally would arrive into the wonderful rest of my life. I'd be done chasing after "it", and now I could just sit joyfully in "it".
Now, only by the grace of God, I know that I need not chase an "it", but rather a "He". He is my God, my King, my Hope Eternal. He is the one in whom I should be resting joyfully.
If you don't know Him, let me tell you about Him. I promise, your life will only change when you stop chasing the "it", and starting resting in Him.
