I am really searching for the path that I am to take in life. I know that I have the ability to do what must be done along the path, whatever it may be, I know that ability comes from God. He will direct my path. I truly believe this. But what is the path?
Picture
I was discussing this with my friend Jan. She said that Anne Graham Lotz would say to get in the Word. I know that, but I'm just not hearing it. 

We talked on and I siad that I just can't sit here, I have to keep moving. Jan responded with a wonderful analogy. In Matthew 6:26 Jesus says to look to the birds. They don't worry about what they will eat, God provides for them. If He provides for them, how much more will He provide for us? 
Picture
When you look at the birds, they don't just sit there with their mouths open. They fly to the ground and dig for worms. 

Jan went on to say that she believes that God will direct our path by shutting doors. If you strive toward something and it just doesn't seem to be working, perhaps God is directing you to another path.

This took us to a discussion we had at Bible study. Charlotte shared a strategy of using a two page spread of a journal. On the left-hand page, record your prayer requests, questions, or searching statements. On the right-hand page, record the events of the answered prayers and questions.

If we stop long enough to reflect on our past prayers for God to show us the the way and see what doors have been shut, we will realize the path that God has chosen for us. When one thing ends...God's will to end it, another begins...God's will to guide. But you have to look back to see it. Kind of like driving forward through the rear view mirror.
Picture
So back to the birds. If one digs in a certain place and doesn't find a worm, (that is not the path God has for it) it moves on to another spot to find a worm. There it is! 
Picture
If the bird had continued to dig in the first location he may have ended up in a hole or stuck in a rut, far off from where God intended to be. 

So perhaps I need to look and be aware of doors closing rather than continuing head-strong in the direction I think best. Guess what? I end up with the fight for control. Oh to have control...my endless battle.

Well, here's to Anne Graham Lots! So I'm in the Word this morning, 1Samuel 11:20-24 ...Do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. And do not turn aside, for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing...
Picture
Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart. For consider what great things He has done for you.

There it is!! Driving forward through the rear view mirror!

May I simply say what a comfort to discover an individual who genuinely understands what they're talking about on the web. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you're not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.

Once you have reached the legal age to start learning to drive or even if you are of a more mature age and decided to take up driving later on in life, the importance in choosing the right driving instructor remains equally as important.

Mirrors have been around for thousands of years, ever since caveman first stopped to examine his hair was still in place in a basin of rainwater.

Learning to drive is very essential, as it helps in reducing the inconveniences of commuting from one place to another. Even though you have different ways to learn driving; enrolling yourself in a driving school is the best option. These schools teach driving lessons to increase the car driving skill in a person.

Indeed, here's to Anne Graham Lots! So I'm in the Word toward the beginning of today, 1Samuel 11:20-24 ...Do not turn beside taking after the Lord, but rather serve the Lord with your entire existence. What's more, don't turn aside, for then you would follow purge things which can't benefit or convey, for they are nothing...

So maybe I have to look and know about entryways shutting as opposed to proceeding with hardheaded toward the path I think best. Prepare to have your mind blown. I wind up with the battle for control. Goodness to have control...my interminable fight.

I truly adore your site. Charming hues and topic. Did you make this site yourself? If it's not too much trouble answer back as I'm wanting to make my very own site and might want to take in where you got this from or what the topic is named. Much appreciated!
