God's Wrist Watch

God's glory will be revealed in His time.
I've been thinking about this a lot lately, it's been on my mind. I was reading the story in John the other day about how Jesus healed a man born blind. The disciples assumed that he was blind because of his sins or the sins of his parents, but Jesus quickly corrects them, explaining that it happened so that the power of God could be seen. Now I understand the difference between power and glory, but it seems to be a re-occurring theme in the book of John.......God's glory being revealed in God's time.
There are even times, when Jesus steps away from or seems to be very careful...because his 'time has not yet come.' Like the wedding and the wine incident. (I love how I just called Jesus' first miracle and incident) The glory was not yet to be revealed.
This has been a theme in my life this year. It seems as I walk through different situations, and struggle to understand.....these words were written on my heart......"My glory will be revealed in My time." When I struggle to obey, because the task seems too difficult......"My glory will be revealed in My time." When I walk and pray at 7 am, and I am so angry at God, because He isn't doing things my way......"My glory will be revealed in My time."
And so, I wonder what kind of wrist watch God wears, and when will His time come......because ladies and gentlemen, you don't want to miss it. I believe.....its gonna be quite the show.
