The Orchestration of a Baseball Game

Several months ago, Scott had the opportunity to purchase two tickets to a Miami Marlins game for their inaugural season in the new stadium. He called me and asked which date I wanted to go, and I told him to choose. He picked June 25th, and we stored that date in our iPhones. And that was that for awhile.

Two weeks ago, when I had my appointment with the eye specialist in Palm Beach (about an hour and a half south of us), she stated that she needed to see me back in two weeks as opposed to the monthly visits that I had been doing. She is only in the Palm Beach office twice a month, so what date did I have to come back and see her? June 26th!

What does that tell me? It tells me that God had orchestrated the timing of the baseball game to coincide with that of my doctor’s appointment. So a 3 hour trip down south to a baseball game was “conveniently” tied into a necessary doctor’s appointment. Scott and I booked a hotel room and had a mini-getaway! God knew that a little fun was needed to break up the mundane, a bit of R&R was a required to shake up the necessary. The game was relaxing and yummy (latin cuisine at the ballpark!) and, thankfully, the doctor’s appointment came with good news of the beginning stages of healing. Thank you to all of you who have lifted me up in prayer. They are coveted and appreciated!

One of my favorite names for God is Jehovah-Jireh: The Lord Will Provide or The Lord Who Will See To It. He is the One who takes care of our needs, and the One who also gives us gifts. God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17
