Chocolate and Coffee.
Here's the quote Deborah chose for us to write about this week:
When I first read this quote, I realized I had to participate this week. Right now, this is such a huge challenge for me. It's so easy for me to run on ahead of God. After all, it only makes sense to do something, right?
But sometimes the Lord seems to allow me to continue in a trial even when I think I've learned the lesson. My temptation is to question why. But His timing is perfect and His ways are so much higher than mine.
So, I learn to live by faith and ...not by sight.
But what does that involve?
For me, that's a struggle. But I long to learn to trust. I must not give in to my feelings. Instead, I make the daily and sometimes momentary choice to ...wait and trust God.
And in the midst of the waiting, I also learn ...
- Dependence upon Him
- To view life differently
- To be sensitive to others who are suffering
- To realize that this life is an opportunity to glorify God
How about you? Are you running ahead or resting in the Lord, trusting His ways and His timing?
Blessings and love,
