Turn Around

by Berni Dymet

Eccl. 4:10 For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help. I want to tell you today about a dear friend of mine. He's a man with a huge heart, this friend, but sadly, he had a body to match. He was eating himself into the grave. Literally, I could see it - I mean, you couldn't miss it.

But I just didn't feel right about saying anything. Until one day he asked me. We were having coffee together. And he said, "Berni - you're a friend. You know me. Tell me the things that you think I could do better in my life". So I spoke to him about his weight. As a friend does. 

It was a God moment. For so long I'd wanted to say something. But that day, he asked me, and so I spoke.

So far this man has lost 22 pounds and he's still on the way to a healthy weight.

You know what I've discovered - I can rush at things like a bull at a gate. Or I can sit back and wait for God's timing. And God's timing - I've got to tell you - God's timing is perfect. It just is.
