Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

"Any time now, Lord, would be fine. I'm coming up against the deadline, please help, Jesus, or it's going to be too late."

But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, God.
You are my help and my deliverer; Lord, do not delay.
- Psalms 70:5 TNIV

A friend of mine in the faith says, "The Lord never comes too soon, but never too late." That's been a comfort to me in anxious moments many times. In those trying times, moments of quick prayers shot up to heaven, we cry out for help, pretty sure we've been ignored or forgotten.

The Psalmist knows every anxiety humans face. And pours out the heart of many of us from time to time, "Come quickly to me...Lord, do not delay." That's a good and faithful prayer.
