Little Pieces

One little piece… Only one? Please? Why does it have to be only one? 

No, I am not talking about cake. I am talking about seeing the path the my future, my life. Through everything that I have done, I know that God is guiding me. However, often He only shows me one little piece. That does not make it easy. I am a planner, I want to know what I have to do today, tomorrow, this week and the next (that is a minimum!). The things is…

GOD DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!!

I have just gone through some major life changes. In the past two months I have graduated school, moved to a new city, new apartment and have a new job.  See the connection? New!! There have been so many changes in my life. 

During the months and weeks heading up to graduation I had no clue what I would be doing afterwards.  For me, this was a scary fact. I wanted to know where I would end up, what it would be like, EVERYTHING. 

I have found that while God knows the whole plan as He tells us in Jeremiah 29:11, He does not always explain the details of that plan. I don’t know that this will ever be easy for me. But I also realize that my finite mind cannot hold the infinite plan of God. 

This quote by Martin Luther King really is something that I have to live. 

 

I don’t know where the staircase leads or even the next few steps, but all I have to do is have faith and take the step I see. It is when I look back that I see how far God has brought me and how I could not have understood everything He was and is doing for me. 

The song Step by Step by Rich Mullins summarizes my life right now. “And step by step You’ll  lead me, and I will learn to walk in Your ways!” Jesus is leading us forward. He knows the perfect way, we have to allow Him to lead to walk after Him.

God is Good

“God is good”                              “All the time”

   “All the time”                               “God is good”

This is a greeting that is common among Christians.  Why do we only take this position when we are in a difficult position?  We only look to God’s plan when we are struggling.  This is something that people should change!

Through all of our lives God is in control.  When we are struggling and when we are in good times, we are in God’s plan.  From the start of our lives to the end the is plan.  I wonder… what would happen if we were to look to God even in our good times? 

I think that many of the hard times that we enter are because our selfish and prideful actions. When we are doing well we go forward not looking to God guidance.  When we run into trouble we turn and say … God fix it, you are good!

God is good, all the time… not just part of the time, ALL of it.  In good and bad, we should trust God that He knows the path that is best for our lives. Without His guidance we would be walking in the dark, hoping we find the right road.

All the time…God is Good.
