For the past several months I've felt as if I'm running in sand, sometimes
even quicksand. I'm trying to speed ahead, trying to give it my all, but
something keeps pulling me back from going as fast as I think I should
be. I know this pulling back and slowing me down has got to be
God. As frustrating and sometimes painful running through sand can be, I'm
truly truly thankful for it. His timing is perfect. His love is beyond my
comprehension. I'm blessed to have a Father who sees to it that I don't
take the lead, but instead He does.
This week in particular has been filled with failed "plans." In
the end though we have peace, we have the understanding that God is in control,
and among the craziness there is a calmness to my soul.
A friend sent me this sweet email yesterday. I am so thankful for it. God's
truth is His love poured out into words. Thank you God for not
allowing "my plans" to ruin yours. :)
Email from a friend:
This has been one of my memory verses lately… I’m praying it for you today!
Love you, friend. God will provide and bring blessing for you and Kev in ways
you won’t even be able to understand.
For the LORD God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The LORD will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right.- Psalm 84:11
If you are like me, stop running in the sand and start dancing in it; enjoying every minute of where God has you.
