Hello everyone…and a “Happy Thursday” to you! Welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! What a great day the Lord hath made…let us begin, by rejoicing in this day that God has made just for us!
Well…yesterday was a busy one…but God was in it all the way! I started out my day, by spending some great time, with my Twitter friends and then it was time for me to head out the door and store up the cupboards and fridge once more, by heading off to the grocery store.
Since my husband and I aren’t able to drive; I had planned on an early start with the taxi; but to my surprise, there was an hour delay. As I sat in the living room…every thought that was in my mind at the time, was saying… “Oh no…an hour later…how are you going to get this done and that done…along with anything else that needs to be done.” The more I sat there, I began to see one thing happening…God was answering a prayer that I had just mentioned the other day to Him and my husband…and that was that I never get much of a chance to just sit and relax; so now I had the time to sit and relax…that is, if I could keep my mind quiet.
Anyways…after a half hour had passed…I began to wonder if God had allowed the delay, due to a problem that could have made our situation much worse. Who knows…maybe we could have been in an accident…or maybe something else could have gone wrong…only God knew that at the time.
After thinking on this for a bit; I began to relax and just place the whole situation in God’s hands…and as I did; I began to see that if He was allowing this delay for a reason; that He would fit every piece of the day together and everything would work out fine…which it really did in the end!
How many times do we find ourselves fretting over a situation that just didn’t go the way we thought it should go? It’s so easy to get sidetracked, when disappointment strikes our hearts; but I have come to see that this only happens, when our eyes are on our own thoughts and desires, rather than God’s will and plan for the moment.
One thing I came to see, through my little outing yesterday; is that we got 2 of the best taxi drivers and everything fell into place in the store…and we only had to wait a few minutes before the driver came to take us home…and just think; that day only happened in that way…because of God’s timing. If I would have forced my situation to work out in a different way; the day probably would have been a disaster.
You know…we may not like the way life goes at times; but when we stop and think on what God is up to, rather than the way we feel life should go; then we will come to see that God truly knows what’s best!
Well…as another new day begins, I pray that we will look for God’s ways, rather than our own…knowing that He is the only One, who knows where each piece of the day belongs! Take good care, as you prepare to begin another new day and may you truly experience God, in every part of your day! See you tomorrow…and many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
