When I sit quietly and listen, I can hear God whisper his plans for me.
But I feel I need to remind God, I’ve made my own plans for the day.
“God can you see my busy agenda?”
Some days I have so many plans and goals I don’t want to have my day interrupted.
Have you ever felt like that?
Do I choose my plans which are important and vital to my business and ministry?
Or choose God’s plan for me, stepping out in faith to trust Him.
Serving Him is to enjoy the great adventures He has planned for me,
and knowing I have obeyed his call gives me great happiness.
He is my peace and safe place, the one who loves and protects me.
Could I offer him anything less than my obedience choosing to follow Him?
He is Enough for ME!
Thank you for dropping by and sharing your time with me.
Do you ever have interrupted plans? I would love to hear from you.
Have a great week!
As a young woman visiting Disneyland in California my favorite ride was “It’s a Small World”. The exhibition of dolls dressed in different costumes from faraway countries and places were incredible. That display gave me a hunger to study and dream of the cultures I had never seen.
My childhood dreams have continued, becoming a driving force in my life today. Giving me a sincere love and curiosity for other people’s values, beliefs and customs. In a small way those early years formed my life’s perspective of my world view. Learning to appreciate others and delight in our diversity is a joy, and lovingly serving others through friendship is a gift.
Father, let me see the world and others through your eyes, not my own. Let your love shine through me.
Dear Lord, may I be willing to be hidden and unknown today, yet ready to speak a word to those who are weary. May your Spirit touch my words and make them Your words that enrich and refresh others.
Thank you for sharing your time with me today dear friend.
What brings delight and Joy to your life?
would love to hear your thoughts as we share our journey.
Brave reminds me of the day I watched my husband and my son-in-law walk ahead of my daughter and I towards the restaurant for an early morning breakfast. I still remember the feeling I had knowing this would be our last breakfast together for a while. Our brave soldier would be leaving for a 15-month deployment to Iraq.
My heart filled with respect and admiration as I looked at this fine young man, and wondered what would cause a person to volunteer so freely to serve his country and willingly go into harm’s way for others. To stand and fight for people he does not know so they can enjoy safety and freedom too. Is it the brave determination of character to serve God and to do what is right because he loves his country and family?
They say “Freedom is never free,” but there is always a price… physically, mentally and emotionally.
I am humbled and honored to say thank you to the brave soldiers who fight for my peace and freedom.
In this moment I also am overwhelmed as I remember that Christ did the same for me. He freely gave himself for me.©
“Christ paid a price I could never pay to give me life I did not deserve”. I am loved and blessed.
Thank You to all who serve, I am praying for you!
Thank you for sharing your time with me, dear friend. What does the word Brave bring to your mind? I’d love to hear from you.
Where do we find rest, would I stop the world and get off this race of life that keeps me spinning. I find myself racing from one task to another playing catch up each day. Cooking, cleaning, washing, writing, it seems I will never get to the end of my long self-imposed list. “Hurry, hurry, faster, faster you’ll never get it all done!” Run, run.
Yet the rest that I long for, I find in the quiet of the morning sheltered in the word of God as he leads me beside the still waters of his love. Calming the turmoil, halting the winds and giving my soul the restful peace to keep moving forward in uncertain times. Whatever the day my hold, I know God’s rest is only a prayer away. He only asks me to live one day at a time for him, because he holds all my tomorrows.
Thank you for sharing your time with me, dear friend. Where do you find times of rest in the busyness of your daily life? I’d love to hear from you.
