“It’s better to wait for the Father’s timing and have things fall into place rather than rush ahead and have them fall apart.”
The difference between a black olive and green olive is the length of time it spends on the tree. Green olives are picked before they ripen. Black olives are picked after they ripen.
Who chooses the timing of the harvest? The farmer does based on when he wants to market them.
Your Father has a purpose for your life, just like the farmer has for his olives.
You can choose to surrender to His purpose and have things fall into place or fight it and see them fall apart.
Jesus chose in the Garden of Gethsemane, where this picture was taken, to allow life to fall into place by surrendering to the Father’s plan for His life. I think that turned out pretty well, don’t you?
Learn from Jesus. Surrender to the Father’s purpose, especially when you get ancy, and life will fall into place in His prefect timing.
