It is there where ever I go...
Whether I turn to the right or to the left, I hear it, see it...
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
It shouts from the pages of God's Word...
plunging deep into my soul,
bringing a joy,
It finds me...
destined to be open like a precious gift.
To reveal the beauty that is inside, the promises that are in store.
In God's Providence everything that comes our way can be used for good.
God does not lead us down dead-end roads, but only detours of His perfect will.
Detours that I have learned, continue to learn,
and have to re-learn often, are His good and perfect will.
Detours that provide more joy and hope than I could ever imagine this side of heaven.
Is it all smooth roads free of pot-holes, twists, and turns?
Will the journey be completely free of stress, worry, or fear?
Sometimes the road will seem so desolate, lonely, abandoned,
never ending in our eyes.
Yet, along the way, as we take the step to put our trust and hope in God.
We will find His good and perfect will.
This is a journey.
Trusting and Hoping in His perfect will.
I'd love it if you come along with me on this Journey of Providence.
I will be joining 5 other writers, kindred friends, who are sharing the journeys they are on.
We will begin on September 5th and for 10 days we will share the words God has laid upon our hearts and breathed into our souls. Each one different, yet weaving our lives together.
