When I opened my eyes to the vastness of the mountains on Friday, the 12th of this month (um, that would be yesterday), I thought about the last 2 years. I reflected where I’ve been and the path God is leading me on. Questions, sometimes without answers.
Trust is needed. Trust and faith in Whom you are following.
So, tell me. Do you have faith and trust in the One you are following? Or are you making the marks in the snow without following anyone?
Let me share with you the fact that God wants to join you on your daily journey! He wants to load you with benefits (Psalm 68:19) and give you sweet surprises around every corner!
Surprises? You think I’m kidding right?
Have you asked God for any surprises lately? There are many mornings when I just plain ‘ole ask Him to show me something fun today. Surprise me! And you know what? HE DOES!
But guess what? You have to be looking. Delight in HIM–He delights in you and desires to delight you! Every single day! (Psalm 37:3-5)
I bet if you start looking you will find some fun stuff.
This particular trip was not specifically for meeting friends, as some of our trips are, but mainly some special time with each other and time spent with the Lord. A time to pray and seek God for the coming journey. It was an incredible trip. I told Jeff, I thought this was my favorite trip. He agreed.
Today (as I write this), I remember what I asked Him for many weeks ago when snow was a possibilty for us Southerners. I asked for snow. I didn’t get it that day. I pouted. Sort of. Maybe not a full on lower lip pout, but still, my heart was set on snow. But you know what? He had a “better day” in mind. A day when I would be tucked away in a cabin and thinking about my sweet sister that had left this life exactly 2 years prior. On the very day He rained down the snow!
Now, y’all I’ve been praying for snow for over a year. I had been asking my friends for snow pictures…post them for me so I can “dream”…. Every time the weather looked remotely possible…I wanted it to HAPPEN! But it didn’t. But did I stop praying for snow? Of course not!
What I want you to do is think about the prayers you’ve been praying and haven’t seen answered yet.
YET. The answer is on the way. Just like the snow of today. It will fall down and surround you with it’s beauty….
That’s a gift from God.
