Not surprisingly, the Creator of time executes His will with perfect timing, and if we wait on Him, He will manifest His glory in everyday life.
For example, I was at the Disney Resort in Anaheim last weekend as a guest of one of the over 150 employees of Lynda.com, the popular online software training and tutorial video library where subscribers can learn digital photography, web design, spreadsheets, optimizing smart phones, and much more. The company had generously provided an overnight stay at Disney’s Grand Californian, and park-hopper tickets.
The spirit of love, appreciation, kindness and caring Lynda.com expressed toward its employee family was so strong, that I felt compelled to speak to co-founders Lynda Weinman and husband Bruce Heavin, especially when I saw that our tables were adjacent at the festive banquet they provided. At first I was just going to get up and briefly talk with them, but when I asked the gal who invited me, she suggested waiting. With 300 or more in attendance, many approached them, even as they tried to eat.
After the meal, more wanted to talk with them, and our group wanted to get going, so I didn’t really give up on talking with them, but cheerfully deferred to my friend’s preference. After all, I don’t know everything about everything!
Next morning, as part of the celebration package, we received early entry into Disneyland an hour before it opened. During what Disney calls “magic morning,” hundreds, even thousands are in the park, but not nearly the numbers that flood in when the gates open.
So who do you think gets into line right behind us at Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride? Yep, you guessed it! And as Lynda’s husband Bruce took our picture, I pondered the mathematical probability of coming into such close proximity in a park with so many time/space options.
It was so natural and comfortable to turn around and quietly say what I had wanted to the night before – how the events of these two days had given me a glimpse into the heart of Lynda.com, and how impressed I was with the way they treated their employees, and that I thought God would bless that kind of corporate spirit.
God existed before time and created time (2 Timothy 1:9 says, “…according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,”). Our times are in His hands (see Psalm 31:15). Knowing this, as a Thinking Christian Woman, you can trust Him and wait on Him to choreograph the details of your life so that you can have the time of your life during this earthly journey!
