Have you ever been in traffic, or minutes away from your destination and everyone is seemingly driving in slow motion? My most vivid memory involving good timing was during my drive to take my daughter to daycare years. I lived downtown Chicago at the time, and her babysitter was in the Western suburbs.

I woke up late that morning (what I perceived to be late) and I quickly dressed her and packed her into my 1999 Malibu. I was a junior in college, and I was also anxious to get to class on time. I rushed onto 290 West headed to the sitter. As we drove, I pulled into the center lane. I had a weird feeling that something wasn’t right. In fact, it was moments later that I saw an accident occur right in front of me. However, before it happened in real time, I had the urging to slow down and pay attention to what was in front of me. A car swerved from the left lane, across my lane hitting several cars in the far right lane. As I slowed down, everyone in back of me did as well.

By the time everything halted there was wreckage in front, my car untouched in the middle and a sea of cars behind me. Taylor was resting safely in her seat and I was a mess. At the time I wasn’t really firm with my relationship with God and I was overwhelmed with panic. I did know enough however to give glory to God for his perfect timing. I was grateful that we were “late” and that I was given some sense of warning. Sometimes we are eager to rush and have a plan in mind for ourselves, but it is in His perfect timing and His perfect will that we will be placed in the best possible position. His faithfulness is evidence that no matter what time of day or what situation we are in, He will never leave us. He will guide us, protect and instruct us if we take the time to hear His voice.
