On-time God

The woman said, "I don't know about that. I do know that the Messiah is coming. When he arrives, we'll get the whole story."

"I am he," said Jesus. "You don't have to wait any longer or look any further."
--John 4:25-26

How many times have you reached a place in your walk with God that felt like He was nowhere around? Or that He wasn't listening to your prayers anymore? Or that perhaps all the things you did wrong piled so high and wide that you could never be forgiven for them?

The Samaritan woman stood at the well that day talking to Jesus. He was right there. Right in front of her. Talking to her. Yet, she didn't even know it.

He didn't get angry. He didn't walk away. He stayed right there, and let her know that He was there.

How awesome!

He loving, patient and kind. His mercy abounds forever and ever, with grace trailing along. Oh, to be like Him!!

If you're feeling down, discouraged, or hopeless I have a message for you. Jesus wants you to know that He loves you. He cares about you. Nothing can ever seperate you from the love of God! He is there, even if you can't feel Him. Be still and know that everything is going to be okay. Just keep trusting. Keep believing. The answers will come. He's an on-time God!!
