I have some friends that are going through times of uncertainty. I say that it will get better as it did for me but they are still unsure.
God takes us through something, I believe, to help those that go through it later. He brings you into their lives to show that His grace is enough.
Circumstances might be different, but the pain and healing are the same.
Looking back on my life, I never thought that I would be one to encourage others.
I am feeling blessed with my past (as difficult as it has been), because of who He has placed in my path. It is my choice if I assist, encourage or help. He places those that might need me to help…I feel anyway.
Hurdles are difficult, especially in ministry. We all have them, hurdles, I mean. I feel led one way, you feel led another. Why can’t they be the same thing? Are they the same thing? If we are praying for guidance and discernment, and they are, why is the path different? Because I want to approach it from left field, but it has been done this way for years, why is left field wrong? Is the way that has been done wrong? No. Just different. Different gifts, different approaches. Hurdles.
I believe that God leads those that are willing to listen. A vision, path, road is given, and I have been given one. I can see it. Along the road there are hurdles. They are in the distance, and small in height. The closer I get to the hurdles the higher each one becomes. I have short, stubby legs. They are difficult to climb over large hurdles. God places the hurdles at heights reachable for me, if I continue to rely on Him. The race/path/road is long. I am approaching a storm, and lots of hurdles.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.” Psalm136:1 NIV
For those that pray, please pray for guidance in my words and actions. Thank you.
