GOD's Perfect Timing

WARNING: Do not read while eating. hehehe!

I've gotten an illustrative insight from GOD but in a weird way. hehehe!

I do not know how much you hate talking about the toilet but I really need to get this through. It is not what comes in our mouths but what comes out of it that matters, right?

Last year (Christmas-New Year vacation), I failed to poop for a few days because I tend to postpone it and this made it really hard (and I mean hard) for me to poop. I was trying to poop last Sunday and I sat in the toilet for almost an hour just to patiently wait for the hardened poo to come out. It was already at the opening. Don't tell me I didn't warn you. hehehe! Anyway, It was so hard that it hurt my butt a lot. There were times when I'd just wait and GOD would miraculously push the poo out. But this time, it's different. I was waiting consciously. To my consciousness, it won't come out. I knew it wasn't the time. I postponed it. I pushed it back a bit. Yesterday, my tummy was hurting and I felt heavy. I felt weak. This morning, I was so weak that I know it is because of the poo that needs to come out.

Okay okay...I know you're wondering why am I talking about this. Well, just be patient with me. You will know in just a matter of minutes reading this weird post. hehehe!

So after 2 days, earlier this afternoon around 5pm, I was feeling it. It was the time. When I sat on the toilet, it all easily came out. In 5 minutes. Boy, was that easy! hahaha!

So here goes my insight...yes I am just starting with my post...hahaha! just kidding!

There are times when you become disobedient to GOD. You know what's right but you still do what's wrong.
~Just like how I was disobedient by not pooping at the right time when my body tells me so.

So you face the consequences after.
~Just like how I faced the consequence of a hard poo. Really hard. What was my consequence? I got weak and a hurting tummy. I was so uncomfortable.

And just when you've decided to obey, GOD tells you to wait. And HE will say, "My child, it is not yet time. Please be patient. Do not be stubborn. I've got plans for you. You will learn from your trials."
~Just like when I was trying so hard to poop thinking that GOD will push it out.

You are still stubborn but since HE gives revelations and discernment upon you, you grow in HIS Will gradually in the course of going through trials. You grow in character.
~Just like when I was sitting there thinking that GOD will make a miracle out of me. But then, I discerned HIM say, "Please wait, My dear princess." Then, I had to go through stomach aches and a weak body. But inspite of this physical pain, I was nice to everyone because I know that GOD is pleased. It is when you don't feel good physically that you will be tested and tempted all together so watch out. Watch your words and actions. Be wise.

And in GOD's Perfect Timing, when the one you are waiting for comes, you will know that's from HIM. You'll just know because you will feel the peace and the love of GOD shining upon you. One of GOD's gifts to HIS willing and obedient children are wisdom and discernment.
~Just like when I have discerned that the Holy Spirit was nudging me to go and poop. As I sat on the toilet, it all came out easily. GOD IS GOOD! GOD GIVES THE BEST AT HIS PERFECT TIME!

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written:
"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love Him"

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Told you I was up to something insightful. hahaha! just kidding! IT IS ALL FROM GOD! Hope you are blessed and encouraged by this because I am just blogging for GOD. This blog was made for HIM alone.

I'll try harder next time to not involve the toilet. hahaha! Toilet is my magic word. hahaha! just kidding again!

Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale.




When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW WITH INSIGHTS!

Hee hee, interesting post in the begining. ;) I love your honesty and sense of humor.

This post comes at a good time. Ah yes, God's perfect timing. It's true, if we try to do it our way, He will let us know that we are doing it wrong and and are being stubborn. We just need to listen to Him.

Love your posts. Keep teaching dear sister.
