"I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter sayings of old."
Life is a story. It is a parable we live through day by day. Just as a parable has a hidden meaning, so, too, the
events of our daily living have significance and deeper meanings. Our present and our past are important components
of who we are. We like to hold onto the past, and we strive to make the present the best it can be. God is a part
of our past and our present. He can shape our parable for us if we will let Him. When we do so, we can be confident
that our story has a happy ending.
I don't have any idea what the outcome of my story will be, Lord, but I thank You for giving my life an interesting
and unique plot. Go with me through the chapters of my life, Lord, for Your glory, Amen
Thanks to all who have PM'd me, the feeling is awesome.PADAK,
So, I said I struggle with the thought of a higher power, BUT, I no longer believe in coincidences.
I found the PERFECT book, let me know if anyone has read it, I am on chapter 3 and it's great.
"When God Winks - How the Power of Coincidence Guides Your Life."
"In the daytime also He led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire."
God brings us through the wastelands of our sin the same way. He will not allow us to be tested beyond our strength
and endurance. Trust in God's mercy and love, and He will bring you through any situation.
Lord, I am sometimes frightened by the challenges I am called on to face. Be with me, and let me lean upon Your strength
for support. You are my rock of refuge, my shelter from the storm. With Your help, I will rise up with wings of eagles
and achieve what You have designed me to be for Your glory and honor. Thank You for Your word to lead us and Your light.
I pray for this guidance and strength for us all in Jesus' name, Amen.
