I don't know about you and your family, but it seems that there is a lot, and I do mean a lot of pressure to throw in the towel. It has been unbelievable here lately. Just as folks are recovering from one challenge, another one comes, and then another. Wow...it has been unbelievable...well, in actuality...it is believable.
As I was reading somewhere in the Bible the other day....(don't quite remember where), the statement which grabbed my attention went something like this. Keep far enough back from the Ark so you will know the direction God is taking you. Why? Because you have never gone this way before.
With each new direction, there is pressure. Perspective has to change because while we are in the midst of stuff, the direction God is leading us seems blurred. As we step back and get the big picture of His directing then we can see the path ahead. I suppose there is not an area in our lives right now that doesn't require a big picture of His directing. That was my prayer tonight.
The interesting part of this scripture is...the direction He is taking us is a new direction. We've never been this way before. This is a direction of trust. I know some of you are experiencing this new direction, from FlipFlopMamma to Lala and many more. Questions of jobs and new communities. Questions of ministry and how to see yourself.
It looks like, as God told the Israelites, get the big picture cause you've never been this way before and I want you to follow my lead. It is good news for me, anyway, that He is leading the way. The steps of a righteous man or woman are ordered of God. Now, I just need to understand what I'm looking at...
