Good evening everyone! Welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope that you have had a good day! My day was one of those days, where everything seemed to go in a different direction than what I first planned on. Don’t you just love a day that feels like a mingled, mangled mess! Lol! At least I can laugh about it…right?
As I began my day, I had planned on getting up…getting around and then spending my time alone with God. It seemed like every distraction that could have happened…happened. From there, I was going to call the taxi service and have them pick my husband and I up; so we could go and get groceries…and when I called, a nice man on the other end of the line, said… “Mam, we are running an hour or so behind today; but we will pick you up as soon as possible. Since my husband and I cannot drive…I did not have any choice but to wait.
While waiting for the taxi to show up, my husband and I had a good visit and as I was sitting there talking with him, I said…”You know what Keith…I’m just going to go with the flow of this day because God must have some reason behind all of this.
Finally, after an hour and a half, the taxi showed up and we were off to the store. As I walked thru the grocery store with my husband, we actually began to laugh at all that had taken place that morning…and I began to find joy in all the things that had seemed to go so wrong.
After finishing the shopping, I called the taxi once more and the man said…I can either send my boss to pick you up, which will only be 10 minutes or I can pick you back up in a half hour. Immediately, I said…I’ll take the 10 minute guy…lol. What a morning; but do you know what? I think it was one of the best mornings that I had experienced in quite some time. Once we returned home and got the groceries put away, I was thanking God, for turning a crazy mixed up morning, into a morning that truly brought joy into my heart.
After getting back on track this afternoon and catching up with everything, I thought…ok Diane, you have 2 writings to do tonight. You can do the blog at your regular time and do the other writing, for Sunday Inspiration after dinner. Again, I learned…never make plans because the phone rang, and an old friend of mine had been going thru some tough times; so I spent my writing time talking with her.
You know…I may be up a little later tonight; but you know what…this is the way God designed this day and maybe He’s teaching me to relax more and let the day flow with ease. If so…I’ve learned a lot today and believe me when I say…I will never forget this day!
Just think…if we would get up in the morning and anticipate God’s next move, rather than always depending on what we have planned; then we wouldn’t have to face moments of anxiety…frustration or even disappointment. I’ve learned today; that everything is in God’s timing…not mine…and that’s the best way to live, as I have discovered, in what I thought would be a disastrous day.
Well…time for me to take a dinner break and then I will be spending time alone with God, as I write something special for New Year’s Eve, on Sunday Inspiration. I hope that you have a good night…filled with the loving presence of God and that you will also wake up in the morning…anticipating God’s next move within your life too!
Take care and I hope to see you tomorrow night, as I share another day with you, along with the goodness, of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
