be there in a jellyfish

"The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." Psalm 46:11

A friend coming over to walk sent me a text.  "Running  a few minutes late -- be there in a jellyfish."  Hmmm... what did that mean? I hadn't heard that phrase before.  Would it be a lot longer, would her arrival be when i least expected it, was there a deep mystery concerning her questionable arrival time?  

To clarify, i texted back.  Then it became as crystal clear as running water. I had misread the message. "Running  a few minutes late -- be there in a jiffyish."  It wasn't an exact time, but i had a much better idea of when to expect her.

Sometimes we don't know exactly what to expect from a person and can become confused with their words or actions. But with God we never have to wonder, guess or doubt what His intentions are.  He is always with us, for us and about our needs.

we are loved and chosen by God,
may we live like we believe it,
