Waves of the Sea

commanded and raised stormy wind

I guess I am thinking a lot about the different landforms this week!  Ha!  I have talked about mountains, prairies, hikes through forests, and now I have some waves of the ocean for you.  Are you drawn to God’s creation or man’s creations?  There’s something to chew on…

Will you follow the path God has lined out for you?  Will you follow a path that is man-created and laid out?  How does the Bible instruct us to live vs. how man instructs us?  Will man command and raise the winds to help us?  Or will he leave us sinking.  Or leave us high…and dry.

We do need to go to the Bible.  We do need to look ahead at what God has planned.  We do have to trust. No matter what the plans of man cannot compete with what God is capable of doing in our lives.  I know which one I will try to trust.

Prayers for Paths

Scan-006

We have prayed for dwellings, travels, plants, and the little stuff.  All tangible things.  Today let’s go deeper.  Let’s pray for paths–those behind us and those ahead of us.

I know, I am going all Robert Frost on you today.  Don’t worry it won’t last.

Sometimes we have to pray for our past paths:  that we can accept them, see them clearly, see them through other perspectives, and then let them be for they have already happened and there is no going back.

We pray often for our future paths:  but do we pray for them the same way:  that we will accept our new path, that we will see the path clearly, that we will see the path through other perspectives, and then that we will accept those paths today and in front of us–for we have laid the groundwork for them already.  We are not the only ones in control.  We do not always know best.  We do not.

Let us be grateful that we HAVE pasts.  Let us be grateful that we HAVE futures.  Let us be grateful that they shape us into unique individuals.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
