in all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make your paths straight.
Healing rain is falling down......nobody's perfect, but sometimes, including me, I get caught up in the hubbub of work,school,2 jobs,house chores, cooking,cleaning,kid's to school,husband to work,me to work,back home,groceries, dinner, off to job # two...After a while it's so overwhelming that I just didn't have enough time for anyone including me. I haven't had 'me' time since....?...So, I decided it's time for a change. I changed the way I looked at things, and things began to change. It's funny how that works. A prayer of faith needs to be said in doing this. The devil likes to slip in and try to ruin plans for a better future just so you can stay down. Well, not no more!!! I do believe that God has a plan for us. People, goals, jobs, experience are all a preparation for what is to come. What is to come? I don't think that is for us to decide. Sometimes people come into our lives briefly and can have a profound effect, and then just...disappear. Whatever happened to so and so? But when you think back about that person did you learn something valuable? or nothing at all. Perhaps if we didn't learn anything that was God's way of saying, "See, you don't need that person in your life." Then when you move on, nothing is really different. Just minus one or two people that never really did anything for you. Or on the other hand, maby they never did anything for me, but perhaps I did something for them?...Does that make sense? I have asked God to remove from my life all people who would be harmful as friends. It's funny, because when I did that I noticed certain people slowly disappeared. When I think about them I wonder, how are they doing?. Then I hear it's the same old- same old. Nothing new.I feel like I'm in a battle spiritually. The enemy is trying every tactic to harm me. Well, I'm not going to let that stop me from moving forward. I take it to the Lord and ask him to deal with it. Sounds like I'm just dumping it in God's lap. No, it's faith.I may not have the tools or the 'know how' when it comes to certain people or situations, but I can ask God to deal with it, them, and help me to be strong in my fight against wanting to give up. Just look ahead and everyday ask for guidance. God is leading the way. I feel like I'm being prepared for something and don't know what. So, if every stride I take is in the right direction things go well. If I run into a snag, I stop and go"uh-oh"...then consult my map of Jesus and find out where I took a wrong life turn. Correct it , and then get back on the right path.Kinda like driving in the dark. Jesus has the map, and then said 'OK, you drive'. So I try.Then take a wrong turn and he quietly says"Maby we should ask my 'Dad' for directions". So I pull over and ask for direction.Then God answers and says," you are going the right way, just keep driving straight, and you'll see the road right ahead of you. You will be fine, follow me."...LOL, I just read back what I wrote. Please don't think I'm being a smarty pants, because I"m not. I just appreciate my Heavenly Fathers guidance in decisions I am making right now because I don't know if they are right or wrong.So I have placed it all in God's hands and pray in faith everyday.By the way, Jesus is an excellent driver..lol !
This is just me being open and still somewhat confused. I really hope I haven't offended anyone with this blog today.I didn't mean to.Have a good day all!!!
