I put a special "love" card on my husband's pillow last night. I had taken time to select a special "I love you" card and saved it until I wanted to surprise him. I had crawled into bed with a book around 9:15 and reading was really sleepy when he finally came to bed about 10. I waved the card at him because the room was dark, my light was off already. He still didn't see it and sat down on the side of the bed to crawl in and I grabbed the card to save it from wrinkledom. He switched on his light to read it, but alas, no glasses, so I had to read it aloud to him.
Makes me wonder how often God is out there waving things in our face for us to see, but we are still moving around in our dark circles chasing things that will either hurt us or take us where we do not truly need to be. When do we stop and ask Him to "read" to us, or tell us what it is He wants to tell us? When did you sit quietly and ask Him and then waited and listened? Perhaps a light will come on for you.
Quit trying to analyze where you think you should be, and quiet your mind to His voice. He does have a special "love" note for you. He will fill you with His joy and gifts more than you think you can hold. He has never promised a 'golden' walk to any of us. What He has promised is to walk with us at all times. He will never lead us to a place and desert us. He never gives us more or less than we need, in both sorrow and in joy. Trust and listen.
For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.--Proverbs 3:26
