The perfect time is now

The perfect time is now

Do you ever spend time waiting for the perfect time to occur for a desired development in your life? Wait no more. The perfect time is always the present moment, for with God, there is no time. Only wholeness and completeness in the moment we are in.

I glimpsed this truth a bit more when praying for an expectant mother. Her delivery date had passed, and the medical staff caring for her was preparing to induce labor. She wanted to avoid the extra medical intervention if possible.

In my prayers for this situation, I knew the baby would come in God’s perfect time, but I realized that wasn’t enough to know under the circumstances we were facing. The statement, “Everything comes with God’s perfect timing,” implies there is time, and that a waiting period may be involved. But with God there is no time. There is eternity—which is all of God’s good here and now.

I knew the baby would be delivered on God’s schedule, not man’s, but I also knew that God’s schedule was always on schedule. There are no missed due dates. The pregnancy, in its true light, was a development of Mind, and it was always expressing wholeness and perfection. It would never be any better tomorrow than it was today.

I continued to know that with God, there is no waiting involved to receive something good. There is no delay, no halting, no hold-ups, no restrictions, no qualifications. All of God’s good is right here, right now, in the realm of Life where we live, and move and have being. Life is complete—now.

The baby arrived in quick order without any extra help, and the mother was elated.

The perfect time for something wonderful to happen in your life, is likewise, now. There is no tomorrow. There is only the present moment you share with God. And seen in its true spiritual light, this moment couldn’t be any better than it already is.

The perfect time is always now.

    Like Godfrey John’s poem:

    Forever,
    In the Father’s timing
    My being unfolds
    Lightwise…

      And another from Godfrey John, in his poem, “This Moment of Your Living”, I love this phrase: “the precision-timing of Principle.” You can find the poem in the book, “Ideas on Wings” or by doing a search in JSH-Online.

      In any case, thank you, Evan!

    Love this and the sweet dear picture of expectant motherhood. Brought back such lovely memories of harmonious childbirths and medical predictions nullified, as God was understood to be the only Creator bringing forth His children in perfect timing, perfect completeness, perfect maturity. Beautiful post, Evan, thank you.

    Thank you, Evan! Thank you, too, to all you commenters! This was very helpful, and a Spiritview that I will keep, as my husband and I wait for the sale of our house.

      Thank you Evan! This message exactly hits the spot for today! How true this has turned out to be for us. Our existing house, after being on the market for 7 months, recently sold unexpectedly. .And just last night, our bid for our new house was accepted! Throughout the waiting and complicated processes involved, we relied on the marvelous statements in the 1910 article “God’s Law of Adjustment.” Whenever we felt impatient, I turned to this article again and again, knowing that God’s perfect law and Principle would work it all out as it should – (not necessarily as we would want to outline it)- in the universe of Mind.

    Life is complete – now. That Life where we live and move and have our being – our spiritual being – how wonderful freeing. Your testimony is so inspiring and so absolutely freeing – for the mother with her birth and for us, whatever needs to be freed in our demonstrations.

    – the perfect time is always now – thats such a wonderful SpiritView today, and also your today`s Daily Lift from The Motherchurch is so uplifting, as well – thank you very much indeed, dear Evan 🙂

    Thanks, Evan, and all who have commented. I have had different experiences where I had to rely wholeheartedly on God’s timing. My daughter was born a month early with a planned home delivery. However, the Christian Science nurse I had engaged to assist the doctor was on vacation, not expecting an early delivery but being prepared for the possibility of a later one. My father assisted in the delivery and I gave birth to a beautiful, perfect little girl.

    yes. I was thinking about waiting for healing, waiting for funds. What God does does not rely on my limited understanding of how things work. i guess we can always expect the perfect good, each minute. thanks.

    In The Life of Mary Baker Eddy by Sibyl Wilbur, Mary Baker Eddy responds to a student in a letter saying “You can never demonstrate spirituality until you declare yourself immortal and understand that you are so. Christian Science is absolute; it is neither behind the point of perfection nor advancing toward it; it is at this point and must be practiced therefrom. Unless you fully perceive that you are the child of God, hence perfect, you have no Principle to demonstrate and no rule for its demonstration. By this I do not mean that mortals are children of God,-far from it. In practicing Christian Science you must state its Principle correctly, or you forfeit your ability to demonstrate it.” Pg. 389-390

    Thanks Evan. I loved what you have mentioned when you were praying for the mother.

    What a wonderful inspiration and a lovely demonstration. Truly grateful.
    We do not have to wait…the good God imparts is here and now. All we need is to be confident and never doubt God’s abundant out pour of good in our life. “If we trust in God never doubting, He will give us all that we need, every moment.” Mary Baker Eddy.
