Well, we broke the rules Thursday night and let a guy speak at our all women’s group. He did a wonderful job encouraging us to stay at the feet of Jesus to receive all that He has for us. Our heavenly Father wants to walk out our life experiences with us. Unfortunately, as our special guest shared from his own personal experiences, we can get a word or direction from God and then take off running on our own, trying to make it happen. This will always put us on the longer, more difficult route to our desired goal. if we reach it at all. I think that many people get burned out, side tracked or lost in their journey due to running with, perhaps the will of God, but not with the plan of God. I have found in my own life, when I am patient and wait on the Lord for not only what to do, but how and when to do it, I find much joy and peace in the journey. The bible says that Jesus, although He was on a very important seemingly difficult task, had more joy than them all. I believe that when we are doing God’s will, God’s way, no matter how difficult or important the task is, it is supposed to be fun and joyful. Let’s determine to have joy on our journey with God while discovering all of the exciting things He has for us to learn, share and accomplish with Him guiding our every step. This will definitely lead to a rewarding and joyful journey.
