Have you ever been fitted for something that it took you 5 years to use? Was the delay something that you HAD to choose?
Mine was a covering for a skin graft, taking tissue from one place and putting it somewhere else.
It wasn’t a challenging operation. Just a matter of better health.
I knew the need for it, but it simply wasn’t time. I visited the doctor’s office, they created the post-op cover, but I delayed signing on the dotted line.
Things needed to fall into place. I was meant to do the grafting–cutting out skin and putting it in a new space.
I’m not the wisest in terms of timing. I see a future picture, but my distance perception is often off.
I think it’s right around the corner, until I hear Heaven tell me pause:
There’s more inner work to be done. You’re fitted for the cover, but wait, Marissa, DO NOT RUN.”
Today I finally took the surgery seat. I was grafted, and that 5 year old post-op cover was a 2015-prepaid treat.
It’ll cover me as I journey through post-op healing ahead. It wasn’t time back then, but today Heaven turned “traffic light” green…from red.
It’s time for things in my life to relocate. I was fitted 5 years ago, but in Heaven’s eyes…today’s surgery wasn’t late.
Likewise, we’ve been fitted for a unique destiny. No one else can fit your journey shoes, even though the delay may be something you didn’t choose.
As with today’s grafting, relocation can take 1-5 years or more. Perhaps in the waiting God was prepping the right people behind that 111 Powell office door.
Perhaps in the waiting, you realized God pre-planned that the painful grafting, would IN THE RIGHT TIME lead to more.
