On this journey of life, lets us wait upon the Lord. David writes about knowing who God is to him and his rock. Let God lead you daily and direct your path daily.
Psalm 31:1-5 New International Version (NIV)
For the director of music. A psalm of David.1 In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
2 Turn your ear to me,
come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me.
3 Since you are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
4 Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
for you are my refuge.
5 Into your hands I commit my spirit;
deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.
As I help in my granddaughter (Willow) kindergarten class room, I see how children get frustrated so easy. Either with this backpack, the kid they sit next too looks at them wrong or waiting their turn. The teacher tells them that each kid will get their turn but you can hear the deep breath. Waiting is hard for each of us at times of life. Waiting on the promises of God and for our lives to receive certain things too. God is in control and yet we feel the need to hurry him up. I've been there and I am actually there today. I want to see the promise of God come to pass. The things I know he has told me and I still wait.
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
I am not saying waiting is easy, but time is the process in life. So many things suddenly change and other things takes time. Change is necessary in our lives and some change we just don't want. Learn to take deep breaths and wait upon the Lord. He will renew your hope and strength daily if you allow him. It takes a made up mind and living Roman 12:2 renew your mind. Not everything will go our way and our plans change. God is faithful and I've seen this with my own eyes.
I write from the middle of my heart and there were times when I thought God wasn't faithful. When I saw the death of my dad at 18 with a heart attach and my brother at 37 from cancer. I didn't always trust the Lord because I didn't understand the plan. I understand we have a beginning and an end in life. Yet, somethings are just crazy hard. We don't know the time we will be born and we don't know the time we will die. God only knows those things about our lives. I've learn to live today in the fullest I can and trust with all my heart in God. He truly is our strength if we allow him. We also need each others. I don't walk this life alone and you don't either unless you choose it. You might say I'm wrong, but your reading this today and I've connected with you.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT ~
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
