I often write and schedule my blogs ahead of time. I may schedule a blog for an hour from now or days ahead of time. I do this because scheduling my post gives me the space and time I need to work ahead or reread my work before posting it. Sometimes, I'll have something scheduled but feel a nudge by the Holy Spirit to post something else instead. I love those moments when the Holy Spirit to interrupts my agenda.
There have been times when I've scheduled a blogpost but an error on my end or a bug in my Wix app overrides my scheduling and pushes the blog out on a timeline different than mine. I try to catch this quickly but sometimes, I miss the opportunity and the blog gets published without me realizing it.
I tend to chuckle when this happens because it's a good reminder that my timeline isn't necessarily God's timeline. There have been instances when my blogs posted at the wrong time or I accidentally posted the wrong blog, only for someone to message me and say "I needed to hear that!" God will use (maybe even cause) my timeline error to encourage someone at the exact moment they need it. This is a good reminder for me to be flexible with how or when I think something needs to happen, because God sees a much bigger picture than I do.
So, if you're feeling like you're not where you want to be or frustrated with how long something is taking, take courage and trust that God's timeline is much more intricately drawn out than ours. He is lining up the right people, opportunities, and resources to answer your prayers and the desire in your heart. His timing is always perfect and always right on time.
God has his own sense of timing: ‘With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day’. He has perfect timing: never early, never late. God is never in a hurry, but he is always on time. -(2 Peter 3:8)
