  1. Wow. How timely for me. I’ve been praying for some things and wondering why they haven’t yet been delivered. I get it now. God is getting me ready for my blessing! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I have experience and learned that everything is always in Divine order. As with the peach tree it’s falling from it’s heavy weight you recognized then and appreciated the abundance and prosperity that was before you. Divine order in action as always. Namaste

  3. I have always been told by my mother and grandmother, the best place you can be is in the will of GOD and his timing is not based on your clock.

  4. Ooooo, this resonates. What a beautiful analogy and reminder of our readiness for blessings. I’ve certainly experienced God’s “Not Yet” moments over the years. Those moments can be so frustrating at first; but I’ve learned to trust God’s wisdom on timing and on doors that open or stay closed. My prayer is now “Your Will, God . . . I give it all to You – the what, when, and how.” Kathryn, thank you for sharing this with us, xoxo

  5. Wow! This article is right on time as I have been waiting and praying to God for a new vehicle as I drive a 97 Toyota Corolla, also praying for a big financial blessing. Neither has come thus far. Reading this article really shines a light on the truth and I want to be ready for the new vehicle and the big financial blessing from God when he sends it, I know it is coming just in God´s time not mine.
