faithful… when I’m not…

Today… God got me to the right place… at the right time… only I didn’t know it… till I got there…

An early morning weekly routine… was all I had to do this morning… but I neglected to check the calendar… so I planned an impromptu late morning shopping trip… and lunch… with my daughter… no thought to an appointment made over a month ago…

On the way home… I stopped for gas… drove from the pump… and suddenly remembered the appointment…

With a gasp… I looked at my watch… 10 minutes to get there… but I was already within 100 yards of where I needed to be…

Looking back… over the many random decisions made to get to that point… if only one… had been different… I would not have been where I was… and probably would not have made the appointment… (or even remembered it…) causing inconvenience for the one I was to meet…

I don’t know if this is great theology… but it feels like a picture of…
…for it is God who works in you to will 
and to act according to his good purpose.
Philippians 2:13
Sometimes… He’s working in us… through our will… for His purpose… even if it is to not disappoint another… because of our faithlessness…
If we are faithless, He remains faithful…
2 Timothy 2:13 NASB
Thank You Father… for Your guidance… direction… even though I was completely unaware… Thank You for Your faithfulness…
