There were two friends, who could be described as "soul mates" ( for want of a better word) when they met and connected in 1989, being then in their mid twenties.

They both knew the Lord Jesus at  three to four year old and when they finally met all those years later, they were so close and got on so well. They described themselves as brothers.

Everything gradually unfolded and clicked about the way it was God's will for them to be friends but it took sometime.

One of them grew up lonely at home, and taunted by bullies on the school playground. Yet God had plans for him to have a friend, that was more like a brother.

God had led them to be together but it took more than 20 years, before they met properly and  formed a proper friendship.

The remarkable thing was that they had met before a few times, without realising in 1989.

They had been at the same places at the same time, until it clicked and the friendship was formed.

They even played together in a childrens' paddling pool, in the 1970s, where their mothers' remarked at how well they played together.

They just missed not meeting again, until the late 1980s, when it finally happened and a proper friendship was formed at last.

Just illustrates to me how God has His plans but sometimes the timing of them can take time.

God can quicken our steps but He cannot programme our behaviour and decisions.

God cannot change the will of people but can work in mysterious ways to influence them and so His plans are fulfilled.
