I have seen many, many posts from people wishing each other a happy, healthy and productive 2015. For some of us 2014 was a year of upheaval and changes and for some 2015 has already promised to bring much of the same. When we see our life heading in a direction that is not so pleasant we tend to gravitate to the “oh poor me” frame of mind. That is when we turn to God but we forget to leave the “oh poor me” attitude behind.
We all know God has a plan for our lives. (Jeremiah 29:11)
What we tend to forget is the road God sometimes chooses for us to travel is often not easy.
Making reliance on God more than lip service in our lives can be a little bit like being thrown against a rocky shoreline by mighty waves……..again and again.
Like we do a thousand other things in our lives, we gravitate to God in ways that are easiest for us. We seek the “feel good” spirituality that is readily available and easy to find. We reason to ourselves that life just sucks therefore we deserve an easy, relaxed and instant road to a relationship with God. We take the easiest route we can find and are surprised when we find ourselves driving the wrong way down a one way street.
Sometimes God wants us to be seekers. Sometimes He throws landmines in our way that we never in a million years expected. When we become seekers on a deep and desperate level we often find truth we didn’t realize we were even looking for.
If God is leading you somewhere, keep traveling for His power will get you there and His grace will meet you there.
If God is leading you somewhere, keep traveling and let His spirit guide you and His hands protect you.
If God is leading you somewhere, keep traveling and let His wisdom, love and mercies sustain you.
If God is leading you somewhere, keep traveling and let His peace calm your fears and His arms dry your tears.
If God is leading you somewhere, walk in faith for there is no where you could go that our mighty God cannot find you.

Will of God
