Have you been wondering: Where has Cindy gone?
Some days I don't feel like I can remember my name.
Some days I look in the mirror and wonder: Who are you?
Seven weeks ago life threw us an very unexpected curve ball and I am yet to recover - OR - the reality of what took place is yet to settle in - not sure which!
Has that ever happened to you? You are standing at home plate expecting the same old slow pitch and WHAM - a fast/curve ball pops you square between the eyes.
Sometimes that is what it takes to get our attention.
My old buddy "JAMES" says this:
"If any of you lacks wisdom he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must BELIEVE (TRUST) and NOT doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind."
I choose to NOT be a wave of the sea and NOT be tossed by the wind or every trial that I face.
God places my feet on solid ground.
If you read the first part of James - just before the above verses - he is speaking of trials and our need to walk through them in joy so that we can be made whole and complete in God. We cannot do that alone.
God is calling me and you to face our trials with joy in knowing that He is doing a glorious work in us. This thought brings joy to my dry and weary soul.
God also shares with us that we need wisdom to walk through our trials and if we don't have wisdom then we need to ask and He will give it to us. That is where I need to be. When I am unsure of the answers to lifes challenges then I must be seeking wisdom from the only one who knows the beginning from the end.
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set your ablaze, says the Lord." Isaiah 43:2
A few times over the past several weeks I have lost focus - today I am refocusing my eyes on the only place I can find peace - my precious Savior, Lord, Father and God.
Today I am Considering All Life's moments with Joy!
