Often we measure what needs to be done by what we have left. “How old are we” or “what have we done” are often the qualifiers and quantifiers of our life accomplishments.
By this age—X should happen, when you have this (physical object)—-Y is the status obtained. But God measures things differently. He made a stutterer, a leading voice of a nation in Moses. He saw a king in a kid, David, who was once a Shepard boy. He used a prostitute, Rahab, to be the ancestor of the savior, Jesus Christ. And, he chose a critic and killer of Christians, Paul, to call many onto Christ.
With human eyes, those people didn’t “measure up” to the expected standards of a leader, a king, a Savior. But God saw more, in His time.
Don’t be moved when the “time” doesn’t seem “right” to do X or to have Y. Instead, cling to God. He has a way of making time, work for Him, and for you.
Chispa Magazine writer, Kuan-Yin T Timothee, MBA, JD is a descendant of Asian and Latin roots, an Army Vet, who decided her life was not over while married and raising four children pursued and obtained her bachelors, masters, and law degrees. While she always was a woman’s champion and loved the Lord since 18, her experiences with the Lord strengthened her resolve to help women live on, and in their purpose. Divorced and now happily married to her grade-school sweetheart, she is more certain than ever that the journey with Christ was never meant to be a “perfect life” but always an intentional one. She loves the study of The Word and desires to seek the Lord and fulfill her purpose with passion and power. As a friend, wife, mother and grandmother, she thrives to help women, the world sees as "victims" or "battered" as women that can survive. Having led young ladies’ ministries, Kuan-Yin looks to effectuate the change that many are afraid to take, yet necessary in order to reach the next level. She is firm believer in pushing women to be their all, know who God is, and what He wants to do in their lives.
