Being in the right place

There is something to be said for being at the right place at the right time.  The saying, after all, is "timing is everything".
Maybe it's a career opportunity.  
Maybe it's meeting the man of your dreams, even though you never even knew you dreamed him.
While I have longed to be at the front for so long, but stayed in the back, not ever thinking I was worthy of being in the front, I know that sometimes my time is well spent in the background.  I think I can have a perfect place in both.
Yesterday was Alive, and we have been praying for weeks for lives to be saved at an alter call at the end if the night . 
I stood in the back praying while a Adam gave the invitation.
I had been praying all day, I've been praying for weeks! 
I was thinking about standing in the back last night in the perfect spot.
Sometimes I know that my place is in the front row, and sometimes I know my perfect spot is ding background stuff. Praying, standing in the back. 
I don't think that God creates us to be in the same spot all the time. I think He calls us to be obedient.
My timing may stink often, but I am thankful for His perfect timing (though I may never understand it)
There was a party in heaven last night!
Everyday I just try to listen to where God wants me. I do what He asks, I get out of the way, and let Him do the rest. 

Luke 15:7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

This is so true. God has the perfect place for all of us. Sometimes, we are needed at a different place for a higher purpose.
