Before our journey back home began this morning I read from a devotional book called "Jesus Today" and the following words were exactly what I needed to hear spoken to my spirit today:
I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. I
know how confused you sometimes feel-and how much you long to find the
way forward. You have tried so many different things; you have been so
hopeful at times. Yet your hope-filled paths
have led to disappointment. I want you to know that I fully understand
how hard your journey has been. I also assure you that I can bring good
out of every bit of it.
This is the way of wisdom: trusting Me no matter what happens in your
life. It is through trust that you follow Me along the right path.
There are many things that seem random or wrong as you go along your
journey. Yet I am able to fit them all into a comprehensive
plan for good-My Master Plan. So don't be fooled by the way things
appear at a given point in time. You are looking at only a very small
piece of a massively big picture. From your limited perspective, your
journey may be confusing , with puzzling twists
and turns. However, from My limitless, big-picture perspective, I am
indeed leading you along straight paths.
Proverbs 4:11 "I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths."
Romans 8:28 "We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their
labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good
to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design
Proverbs 20:24 "A man's steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand his own way?"
We spent the whole day traveling home with diversions and flight delays
due to weather. I am thankful to be home again. My heart has been a
little heavy today but I am so thankful Tony has been with me this whole
week and that God spoke truth to me before
the day began.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
