I don’t know why I’m surprised, but I am. I’m continually amazed at the way God works in my life. Right when I feel like I got it all figured out, God steps in. The way I see it, I can go with the flow or try to fight against it.
Trying to control everything is not my strong suit. I used to be like that, but I’m weaker in that area now. This is a good thing. For we should live in faith and let God control our circumstances. If I do my part then I can leave it up to God to do the rest.
Some days I’m taken by surprise. Some days I get frustrated. Neither of these events make any sense. Sometimes it’s a balancing act to get through the day. To say I got it all together would be a lie. There are times when I think I do, but in reality, I don’t.
I have to put my faith in God. For I’m learning that His ways are not my ways. The Bible clearly tells me in Proverbs 16:9, “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. I’m telling myself that everyday.
For I know, “we walk by Faith and not by sight.”
I’m glad I read this! It came just the time that I needed it most. 🙂
Seeking God, Accepting God, Following God is all a testament to our faith!
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
I can totally relate to “Sometimes it’s a balancing act to get through the day”. To say I got it all together would be a total lie-it’s good God knows just when to jump in and take over the controls of my life. He knows what is best, I’m just too busy sometimes to notice-but HE always gets my attention just at the right time.
I agree Penny. Over the many triumphs lie in many defeats. Sometimes all I can do is just get out of bed.
Thanks for sharing.
Jeanne, what a wonderful reminder we find in Hebrews 11:1 for seeking God and accepting God is all done in faith.Thanks.
