~When the Time Was Right....~

Last week, I finally got around to purchasing a 2012 calendar.  The one I picked out was from DaySpring.  When I opened it up, there was a cardboard insert with a poem inside.  I don't know if it's the same one in every calendar but it is so lovely and, of course, so true that I wanted to share it as today's Thought to Ponder.

When the time was right,
the sea parted,
the walls fell down,
the lions went hungry,
the sun stood still,
the star appeared,
the waves were calmed,
the stone was rolled away,
the Lord ascended...
And when the time is right,
the King of Kings will return.

God is never early and He's never late~
He's always right on time and His plans for you are good.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

I pray that you are blessed with knowing and having peace about God's plan for you today ~

Velma, I love DaySpring! Such uplifting and beautiful cards and ephemera they have. I am certain I've received little page inserts in my things as well, so I think they just do that when they print for everyone who buys DaySpring product.

God is never early, and He's never late...His plans for us are good...

Yes, a beautiful reminder of faith and His grace... Happy Sunday to you! xo

Beautiful thought.
Thanks for sharing.

I have found that if I do my best, Heavenly Father will make up the rest :)

Have a beautiful day.

Such a wonderful post! We just watched the Courageous movie at church tonight and this would have fit perfectly. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I would love it if you stop by and join in our "impossible challenge" tomorrow.
