Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old, Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The wild beasts will honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise.
Thought for the Day: As we face new days and thoughts, remember the times God has made a way.
Sharing a conversation with a friend who I haven’t spoken to in many months was refreshing to me. There are still days when I feel sorry for myself as I still do not have a teaching position and although I am fulfilling a lot of dreams and visions of my heart, I sometimes feel I am not complete. As I spoke to her about my husband’s ministry in our church and how our children are doing in their school, scout, and church activities my heart seemed to warm. She stated that it seems that God has definitely led us to this place. I agreed as it seems that everyone in our home has their place and is happy. Looking back at that discussion as well as talks I have had with others through the last months has reminded me, once again, of God’s great plan for our lives and that He places us where He wills. I am still yearning for a position teaching in a local school, but in the meanwhile, I will continue being in His presence and writing about being in the presence of God.
“God will make a way where there seems to be no way, He works in ways we cannot see He will make a way for me. He will be my guide, hold me closely to His side. With love and strength for each new day, He will make a way. He will make a way.” In our lives today, “God has made a way where there seemed to be no way, He has worked in ways we could not see. He has made a way for me. He has been my guide, has held me closely to His side. With love and strength for each new day, He has made a way. He has made a way.” I am still watching for God to guide me to my next big chapter, but in the meanwhile, I am thanking God for walking beside me.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for conversations where we can talk about our faith and where You have led us. Thank you for the friends we talk to who listen, give words of wisdom, and then pray for us. We praise You today. Amen.
