Why is it that every time I start to think I have myself all straightened out, I only turn around and find myself all tangled up again? Why do I think so much? I do believe that God speaks to us in different ways, and God really spoke to me this morning through this. I wonder how in the world I missed it for five days when I check her blog all the time! Now, tell me... why did she use the concept of our Promised Land? Why did she talk about stopping short? Why did she talk about the promises that await us?
I used to have a dream. I think He gave it to me. I wanted it. I no longer do. I haven't delayed doing something to achieve the dream because we all know, while we have done everything we could, we have absolutely no control over the outcome at all. But, am I giving up a dream for the wrong reasons? In the process, I don't want Him any more than I wanted Him before. Wasn't that the point, though? To want Him more? I can't see any other reason to have brought me full circle like this.
Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...
