You may have experienced your dreams and hopes deferred by life’s circumstances. Maybe you have felt the sorrow of time quietly passing you by each day. Maybe you have encountered expired and exhausted efforts to make a long awaited dream come to pass. In this season, God is giving you a new song. You can actually achieve the dreams that you had to put on hold. You can fulfill the blissful desires that fear claimed you never could. Though you were burdened by your situation, the fire still remains in you to accomplish that purpose. It is never too late with God; in fact, you are right on time. That moment was indeed never delayed— rather the timing was not yet in sight. The schedule of God will never fail. No matter what happened that postponed and interrupted your ambitions and aspirations, it will never be forgotten in the sight of Jesus. There was always a reason that plan was planted inside of you.
Life has a way of reminding us that our dreams deferred have not yet actualized in the physical. It may have felt as if you would never live out the moment that has consumed your thoughts. It feels foolish to believe that you can dream again—but you can. You have discounted yourself based on age, ability, or lost hope. God only requires you to be someone He can use. The prerequisites and qualifications do not phase the Holy Spirit. You are not too late for the career you have been working toward. You are not too late for the future family that you have been praying about. You are not too late to fulfill that childhood promise. Maybe your life has gone a completely different direction than what you have planned; however, it was always design to transpire in that manner according to God’s will. You are not out of time, but rather the timing of fruition has not yet happened. You are right on track. You will never miss what has not happened.
Start with the newness of God. Though that illness occupied your time, you can live for what was unaccomplished. Though the tragedy you experienced took away your confidence, you can attain that calling that feels impossible. Though the death of a loved one stopped you from believing in yourself, you can seek out the things that you have always wanted. Life may have caused a pause in your plans, but you can restart. You can press play again on your desires. God is for you and with you. There is still time and hope in the Lord. It is not too late, but rather right on schedule. Dream again. Though lost time has sidetracked your progress—God’s renewed timing will find you. Your in due season will happen in the appointed moment. You are never late with God.
