Hi bloggy friends,
after 6 weeks of silence I’m back. I don’t usually do this. I mean, just disappear. But things have been pretty crazy around me. And since this space is “instant publishing” I kind of shied away from publishing some of the things that have been so heavy on my mind.
The circumstances and problems, if you will, have not changed. It’s all still there. And my motto for each day is now more than ever: ONE DAY AT A TIME!
In my last blog entry I talked about letting go of the steering wheel, about letting go of control, letting go… If you’d like to, read that post. You’ll understand better, where I’m coming from. And even though I know I’ve let go of so many areas of my life, God still keeps on pressing this issue with me.
On Saturday morning, as I was leafing through my Bible, my eyes fell on Psalm 32. I’ve loved this Psalm since I was a young girl. And as I was reading through it, I came to verse 8:
I had to read it a few times for it to sink in. And I wondered how David must have felt, when he got these words from God. I see so much love in these words. God really cares about David’s life, and what a promise he gives David here! Not only does God know the best pathway for his life, but He also promises to advise David and promises to watch over David.
And on Saturday morning I felt God say these words to me:
I don’t quite understand it all. And to be honest, I don’t need to. Once I’ve started letting go and God has been taking over, it’s been a very wild ride. And I don’t regret a second of it!!! No, I really don’t.
Sometimes I do wish I was travelling on this beautiful path of my life. But my life right now seems more like a steep climb on a very steep mountain, the sun is very hot, and there’s lots of sweat.
BUT because I’ve got my Heavenly Father on my side, I do trust Him to “guide me along the best pathway for my life.”
So I’m back on these pages and plan to blog more regularly again. And most of all, I’d really like to finish the series on Nehemiah.
