Hello everyone…and a big welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog!” I am so glad that you stopped by for a visit…and my prayer for all of us; is that we will come to connect with a God, who longs to be everything…for every little thing we need!
Have you ever had a day, where you seem to be heading in one direction and then…out of the blue, you feel as if you are walking through a maze, rather than down a straight path? Well…
that is how yesterday was for me.
You know…it seems like we start a day…thinking that this will happen this way…and that will go that way; that is until we find ourselves on a path we never planned on being on. One thing I’m coming to realize more and more; is that once those feet touch the floor in the morning…you never know which direction God will take them.
Before going to bed Tuesday night; I spent some time with God and asked Him to lead the way through my Wednesday and then I asked Him to help my husband and I with good taxi drivers and good buys at the grocery store…and you know what…God answered both prayers; but then we came home…thinking that our landlord would be coming over to fix a couple of things, which I was all set for…and come to find out; he had just come over, to see what him and his brother would need for the fix up job…then the bombshell landed on my head, when he said… “We’ll be over tomorrow, to do everything.” I think that it was right about then; that my heart and stomach hit my feet because Thursday’s are always my busiest days…and to top it off, I have to do a major writing, which would really require some quiet moments alone with God.
I have to admit…after they left to go home, I started to panic and even try to figure out a way to get one of the writings done that afternoon; but there just wasn’t enough time in my day to do that. After calming down and thinking more rationally; I was reminded, as to how God has a plan for every moment in our day…and just knowing that He would be in charge…brought a peace that calmed my troubled soul.
You know…it’s amazing, as to how we can become so caught up, in our own ideas and thoughts and what needs to be done and when it needs to be done; that we forget who is in charge. We ask God to lead us through our day; but somehow we get sidetracked in our thinking and then we start expecting Him to do everything according to our plans, rather than His will.
I don’t know about you…but I want God to lead the way each day…for He already knows the way; which I would think could save us, from a lot of confusion and more problems. Maybe if we were to look more deeply, into what God is up to, rather than what we expect; then we would come to see how life could be less complicated.
Today, I pray that we will begin this brand new day, by anticipating God’s next move. I truly believe that when we look for what God may have for us, rather than focusing on what we feel will happen next; then we will come to see how a powerful God, can truly come alive within us, while working in ways that we could have never imagined.
Well…it’s time for me to go; but I have truly enjoyed our visit today! I pray that you will have a great day with God…and remember…anticipate His presence and you will find Him in your day! Take care and many blessings on your day! See you tomorrow!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
