Thank you all for your kind words on my last post. It was a tough couple of weeks but they have been necessary in order to move on in truth. It is so easy to put a band aid on a situation requiring surgery but as we all know a band aid will only hold back the flow for so long.
When ever I am feeling overwhelmed my heart always seeks out God's presence in my current situation and more often than not I turn to Proverbs for the wisdom I am seeking. (Since there are 31 proverbs there is one for every day of the month, so it always works out. God is kind of amazing like that.) I will usually just take the day of the month and head straight for that corresponding chapter and I am never disappointed with what I find there and with the specific message God has for me.
"We can make our own plans but the Lord determines our steps." Proverbs 16:9
My take away given my current situation is this, I can steamroll my plans through but if it is not God's ultimate will, it ain't going to happen. Slow down and seek God's heart in the matter.
So now it's time to step back, reassess and move forward with the right focus. I am ready to seek and find all the joy He has in store for me. What about you?
Happy Friday, my friends.
