The Painting:  It started with an undercoat primer of black paint.  From there came the composition and colors with the horses in motion... The colors reminded me of Santa Fe but more of the desert west of there.

The Thought:    Sometimes do you think everything is going wrong...or things seem to be pointed in the opposite direction than you wanted to go?  I think that is only your perspective and that my friend, can be adjusted.

So many arguments happen between people every day that are wasted energy leaving the participants both drained and empty.  There are no winners from these encounters.  When you decide to do something and things are not going in the right way, it is time immediately to reassess and change directions.  Forcing an issue or forcing something that is not working is not God's will.  In a verbal disagreement you will be miles ahead with the simple words, "we must agree to disagree." 

You will never go wrong when you commit your way to God.  Always faithful to you with His love, He will lead you in the right direction.  He will protect you no matter what challenges are in your journey and He will prosper you.  (No that doesn't mean financial independence...but it does mean emotional peace.)  

His way may even feel counter intuitive to what you might think your plans should be.  That requires a leap of faith and the courage to see it through and believe you are submitting your life to Him.

Take heart this day my friend, and commit to being faithful to God.  Follow Him.


"Even if it isn't what we want to do. We will obey the Lord so that all will go well for us."  Jeremiah 4:2-6.
