31 Mar Choices
I thought – well what the enemy planned for evil, God will turn to good! That’s a worthy response. Then I thought – wow, sure glad I am not in the wilderness anymore, I like the water and the leaves on the tree. But look again. The water looks rough and the sky looks as if a storm is headed my way. Hmmmmm.
Now, when I scanned the wilderness, it did look kind of peaceful – a familiar place. But no, I want the adventure of the stormy seas I thought to myself. But do I?
Then I saw the bridge. Is it that I can walk between both scenarios throughout my whole life and that is just the way life is? Or could it be that it just might be my choices that would determine where I am in any certain moment?
Conclusion for me. I realized that both places would cause me to look to God for my strength, my help, my hope, my protection and my shelter. Whether it be on a stormy sea or in the wilderness, I can also count on God to be there for me! How about you?
