I am not a fan of Baseball. Sorry didn't mean to confuse you. But I was thinking about what is going on right now with our life. And I was looking at my blog and the header and I realized that I was thinking that God has given us a curve ball.
At the beginning of the year I posted that I wanted to dedicate this blog to serving God. I want to write things that are an encouragement to you. I want to post photo's and review books that are uplifting and encouraging or entertaining in a healthy way.
I want to share my life and my Home. And so I dedicated this year to the year of the house. My plan was to keep photo's of my house up and change my background when I get a whim. (I intended to do a Valentine background but I was sick for a couple of weeks and didn't get much done around here. )
Now with the curve ball of having to move I am confused and frustrated. I am anxious.
But I am leaning on and trusting God's word.
He says ". . . For my thoughts are not your thoughts . . . my ways are higher than your ways." Isaiah 55:8&9(paraphrased)
He also says ". . . The Lord your God is with you, (even in the storm of life or when you receive a curve ball) he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17.
I seek his love to quiet my spirit. I seek his delight.
I pray that all that I do and all that I am is a delight to my heavenly father. I listen to hear his singing.
And as confusion, fear and frustration sets in I lean on these words more and more
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight." I pray for a straight path.
I pray God will reveal his plan his short term plan for our lives.
Have you receive a few curve balls recently? Are you going through a storm and your wondering where God is in all this? Well he is where he always is right in the middle sometimes he calms the storm and sometimes he calms the child.
I am his child and I am calm. And he fills me with Joy
