God's Orchestration

Dear Lord,

Your Word says in Ecclesiastes 3:1a, “There is an appointed time for everything.”  I love that You don’t just say that there is a time for everything - You say there is an appointed time for everything.  A time appointed by You.  Today was a day in which I could truly see Your orchestration throughout my family’s day.  You orchestrated everything perfectly into a flow that we could handle well, and thus, reflect Your glory back to You with the talents You gave us.  It doesn’t hurt that it feels good, too!

Whether it was taking photos at the church; visiting friends at a garage sale; returning to purchase photos and tend the little man while we chose which to use; making calls to have missed staff photos taken; or even getting home in time to get lunch and a nap for the little man while we played League of Legends with friends - You orchestrated the day in such a way that it all worked smoothly.  We may have played a small part in planning, but You had the reins and truly steered the day.  Items came up just as we were finished with another, or in time before we were finished to be ready for the next.

Thank You for Your orchestration, and that You don’t confine that gift to moments or even days.  You are always orchestrating our lives, and I truly appreciate that.  You cause “…all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to [Your] purpose.” (Romans 8:28)  Help me to keep that focus in mind from day to day and moment to moment.  “Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips will praise You.” (Psalm 63:3)

In Jesus’ Name, amen.
