SON SHINE 6: IN HIS TIME
My wife wasn?t expecting that part of it that day some years ago, but I told the story as the pastor prepared to pray – ?I graduated from the university 21 years ago and this is the first car we are buying?.
Although there are today teenagers driving choice cars on university campuses, while many under-21s are riding their third cars, as a family we had every reason to be grateful, knowing that we inhabit a world populated by many who by no fault of theirs (and not necessarily because they are less qualified), will never get to buy a car in their lifetime.
?He hath made everything beautiful in His time?? ? Ecclesiastes 3: 11 (KJV)
The good things you have, no matter how long they took to get, are, as the song goes, for many just a dream.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
