Leviticus 1-3; Psalm 27; Hebrews 2

by Becky Hill Martin 

”Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”
Psalm 27:14

Listen – I stumbled upon this epic ’90s mixtape at an estate sale. It took me on a total nostalgia trip to the days when I used to create my own. Oh, the patience and timing it took! Recording songs straight from the radio with your boom box or Casio Cassette Recorder = sneaking around late at night to avoid your noisy family and having to wait hours to catch one without the DJs talking over tracks.

It got me thinking that life is kinda’ like a mixtape. God is the ultimate DJ, spinning the tracks of our journey. And, each song on our tape has a purpose – just like every experience in our lives– the highs, the lows, the slow jams, and the upbeat anthems. DJ God knows the perfect rhythm and flow for the soundtrack.

Patience – that’s the key. Just like waiting hours (that seemed like years) for the perfect moment catch the next track, life’s defining moments unfold in divine timing. God’s plan for you is meticulously crafted – every break/bridge or slammed door in your life adds to the richness of the overall composition. See – curating it isn’t about instant gratification; it’s about savoring each note, each lesson, and finding beauty in the waiting.
