Oh, please be calm…I have no astounding revelation.
I just have a thought.
Promotion does not come from the east, west, or south…It comes from God. What a notion! Within the splendid world of church and systems and order, I am reminded of God’s sovereignty. He promotes…He guides the process of promotion.
He is in control. For this, I thank Him.
Another thought…time and chance or opportunity comes to us all. I have to do the best with the time I have — be present in the moment, and all of that. Now that promotion is here, I marvel at the time I waste while I consider the upcoming tasks. There is always so much to do.
The Bible also says to rejoice with them that rejoice. I am grateful for this sweet experience where after sincerely rejoicing with others, my kind Father gifts me with time and a chance to rejoice for me. For someone who is constantly “working on something,” finishing is in itself a reward. But, it’s not the only one…
And so I celebrate! To God be the glory…and, the victory is mine! (woo hoo!)
