CHANGE IS IN THE AIR ~
Nobody said life would be easy!
Stay focus on knowing God is in charge. It's hard at times to keep the human brain lined up to God's word. We know he is in charge and yet a sudden scared feeling can come over us. We deal with a lot of thing and changes in our lives. Turning it all over to God and leaning not to my own understanding sure helps.
Romans 8:28 NIV
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Seasons come and go in our lives. We have just entered the season of fall. A mixture of warm air and cool nights. Maybe even rain for some and we can see how different the weather is on a daily bases.
It is much like that in our regular lives. We never quite know what to expect, but we can give thanks for a new day. Change is in the air. I often remind myself to live in today!
Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit." Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that."
IF THE LORD WILLS ~
I heard this statement a lot in my life. If the lord wills and wasn't quite sure what that meant. As I have gotten older, I see that God's plan is in each of our lives. We can pray and ask God to help us, but then we must know that his will plays out too. He gives us free will and that makes our lives full of choices. our choices determine so much and it not only affects us, but others. Choosing right is so important.
Even as you read this, thoughts will pop in your head and you might say that I don't know your story. That would be true statement and yet I know that God has created you for purpose. I know that God has connected you to this blog for a reason. Each of us connected can spur one another on in hope and remind us of good things God has already done in our lives. Even if your live are at a hard place, God knows and he is working on it too. I totally believe that trusting God is the only way through so many changes in one's life.
Philippians 4:6-7 NIV 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
