It has been a very long day but a Blessed Day. I went in to work very early in order to finish my 40 hours. I left early Wednesday due to not feeling well. I am blessed that I am able to make up my time.
I had a blessing that one of my co-workers took me to lunch today. I am grateful that Daddy lets me have not only favor with Him, (I am Daddy’s Favorite 😀 ) but also having favor with the people I work with. I had done a things for my co-workers this week to help them get stuff filed and in order. I try to do what I can to help my team succeed in running the home we work on. I was in return rewarded for my hard work and help by being taken to lunch today.
I know that no matter what lies ahead God will be in-control. Earlier this week I was walking back to my dorm. I had walked all over campus that day and I was tired. I began to think about cutting across the grass to make my trip shorter. A short cut so to say. When I began to think that God doesn’t want us taking short cuts to get what He has already promised us. He wants us to trust Him and His timing. It is when we get off course and try to take another route that we end up harming ourselves in the long run.
Yes, I was tired… yes I had made this walk several times already that day…. just a few more steps and I would be able to sit down for who knows how long…. BUT …. if I were to take the short cut then it would be cutting me short of extra steps. Which these extra physical steps would help me with my physical body and goals I am trying to personally reach. If I took the short cut then it would not have benefited me in a physical way.
Sometimes we want to take the short cuts in life because we grow weary and we just want to sit down. But if we stand and know that He is God and faint not but continue the path. Then the Plans He has for us will manifest in His and the perfect timing for our lives. It will bless us more than we could imagine. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good! This is so true. I am excited to see where God is going to take me over the next 358 more days and how this will draw me closer to Him.
It is not always easy to see the blessings, favor, mercy, and grace our Abba extends us. But in searching for these things we began to see How Abba loves us not matter what. If we look deep enough and hard enough there is always something that we can be excited about that Abba has done for us. I share these testimonies with you in order to build our faith and trust in God more and more every day.
