One morning before I was due to give a talk at a breakfast meeting, I had a sudden panic attack whilst brushing my teeth. I asked God ‘what happens if I freeze or forget what I am meant to say’. He replied “just wing it”!

Isn’t that incredible. The Creator of the Universe loves us enough to answer us when we are brushing our teeth.  And He does not necessarily give us long Theological answers but short answers like ‘just wing it’.

The phrase dates to the late 19th century and is defined as follows:

“‘To wing’… indicates the capacity to play a role without knowing the text, and the word itself came into use from the fact that the artist frequently received the assistance of a special prompter, who… stood… screened by a piece of the scenery or a wing.”

In life we often don’t know the text that follows or we forget our lines…
How amazing is it that we can glance to the side and see God standing in the wings of the theater of our lives prompting and encouraging us.

Psalm 46:1
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
Isaiah 41:10
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

About Noelene

I am a child of God's. I am also a writer. Mother Teresa once said "I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world". My objective is to be one of God's love letters to the world. I can only achieve this through His grace at work in my life.
