I remember when I first heard this song. It was right after I applied for the job I'm doing now. I didn't choose this profession; it was chosen for me by a higher power.
A week before the position closed, I was out with my current roommate at the bar. As we were heading home, we saw a group of teenagers asking for help. They said they had been shot at by a car driving by and needed help as one of them had been shot in the back of the leg. I called for help via OnStar and they started running away scared they would get in to trouble or that the car would come back. I tried to follow, but the police said just let it go. I've never stopped thinking back on that day and if those kids were okay.
As we drove home, we passed the campus of Our Lady of the Lake Uni. where we had just graduated from. I had to stop and pray in front of the chapel where I was baptized because I was very troubled about the situation. It was at that point I told God that I got it. I had known for a while, but I didn't want to accept it. I was supposed to be a social worker... specifically work with persons whom had been incarcerated or formerly incarcerated and possibly should consider working with youth as well. I just needed a job. So I surrendered all to Providence that day and let him take the wheel.
The next morning I drove out to my old internship site just to keep up with my references there. To my surprise, I was told that there was a case manager position that opened up. I applied and got the job. This song reminds of all the times when I've had my doubts and was scared but just held on to what is the simple truth that God is always on-time and never late and the roads we travel are bumpy for all the right reasons. It's still you look back that you see why it had to happen this way. Sorry for the long post but I just made a promise I would always tell this testimony. It's easy to catch me getting teary-eyed at the bar and dancing pretty hard when this song come on at the club. Ironic I know but... what can you do when all of you is at peace and so happy knowing the Father is looking out for you.
