Hello everyone! I hope and pray that your week has been going well and that you’re having a great start to your day! As we begin today, let me ask you a question. Have you ever had days, when you feel as though you aren’t accomplishing anything or maybe what you had planned, just never seemed to happen? Believe me, when I say that I truly understand. How is it that we can have all the ideas up in our heads, as to what we would like to accomplish but yet, we don’t always make it that far in our day?
Yesterday was a little frustrating for me, as I wanted to accomplish more work than what I actually did for the ministry. As my day was drawing to a close, I was thinking on what actually went wrong in my day and as I was thinking on this, it seemed as though God stepped into my thoughts and gave me a helping hand. He was speaking to my heart and reminding me that we can hold all the plans and ideas in our thoughts for the day but He is the One, who determines what will actually be accomplished and what won’t. As I continued to think more on this, I began to see, even more clearly; that when we accomplish…just what God wants us to do in a day; then we are truly being led by His almighty hand.
Just think people…God is working out our day, in a way that can steer us away from the obstacles that could cause us to fall, while caring for us, in a way that keeps us safe and protected, from the things that could lead us down paths that aren’t connected to His.
Why do we allow ourselves to be frustrated…overwhelmed and totally exhausted, while we try to fit everything into one day? Don’t we realize how simple life could be, if only, we would just take each moment as it comes, while letting God walk us through each task that needs to be accomplished.
I remember a time, when I first started this ministry, which has been almost 15 years ago. Seems like I had my head stuck in days that hadn’t even come to pass…that is, until God opened my eyes and helped me to see what I was doing to myself. I came to see that the days that I was making plans for hadn’t even come into existence and who knows…maybe they never would. I also saw that I was totally out of sync with God because my thoughts were entering days that God hadn’t even entered with me; so actually, I was getting way ahead of Him. No wonder, I felt lost and overwhelmed.
You know…God never intended for us to have a life like this. In fact, I believe that He longs to walk us through each moment of our day…in a way that can lead our hearts to moments of peace and joy but how are we ever going to experience moments such as these, if we are out of sync with God…lost in a world of our own choosing.
Today, I thank God, for the little reminders that help me to stay in sync with Him. You know…when we choose to walk directly behind God and let Him walk us through every second and every minute of the day; that is when we will truly experience the best He longs to offer us.
Today…may we all find ourselves following directly in the footsteps of Jesus!
Have a great day & God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
