Then God Showed Up

Sometimes I am just weary.                  P1000338

Weary from it all…..

Lately my mind has been preoccupied with insurance changes and the expense of it, changes in education with core standards, and the government consistently not considering what we, the people, think.

Terrorism and shootings. Fear of the unknown.

I worry about the future and I worry about my kids future, and I wonder what our country will look like in ten years?

I had all this stuff swirling around in my head when I went to get the mail yesterday afternoon.

Then God showed up.

In the mail.

He came in the form of words from In Touch Ministries.

Dr. Stanley had written out Life Principles To Live By.

Principle #9 stated, “Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees.”

Looking beyond what we can see, because really what can I see? I can’t look even five seconds into the future. I can’t see anything.

And the unknown is always scary.

The future is dark to me. I am blind to what lies ahead, but God knows.

If I stick close to Him, He will lead me through whatever the future holds.

My eyes teared up, right there in the driveway, holding the mail in my hand.

I needed to read this.

I needed to dwell on this.

Thank you, God, for the reminder.

 

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9  ESV
