…Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Today’s reflection is about what’s going on and being grateful that I know who God is and that His plans and purpose for my life are in His hands. This week has had some disappointments, feeling sick and revising things. When disappointments come, we must get quiet and seek the Lord for clarity and/or peace. Sometimes He may not give us clarity right away and waiting is very difficult for us, as we all know. However, I will worship while I am waiting.
As I have been reading through Numbers, it is revealed that the anxiety and impatience of the Israelites caused dire consequences. I am reminded that trusting God is so important. He will give us what we need because He is Jehovah Jireh, our provider. And, while waiting can be so uncomfortable, it is comforting to know that no matter the circumstances, God has my back.

After making decisions on the blog and moving forward, things come out of nowhere to challenge the new focus. One of the things that irks me is when I sabotage myself. This week has been crazy for me. I made wrong decisions that have major negative impact and trying to recover to get back where I was with so much enthusiasm is an uphill climb. The thing about making dumb choices is you have no one to blame but yourself. Okay, now that that diatribe is over, I am once again focused. One thing to learn from making wrong choices is to consider the consequences that will follow. The consequences add more situations that you have to make decisions on and this is extra work.
As I move forward, I realize that there are times when you have to see the true reality of making those wrong choices. I look forward to when making the right choices is a breeze. I believe it is feasible but it takes constant awareness and trust. My trust in God and His plan for my life keeps me holding when I have made some major mistakes. At this moment in time, I do count my blessings. I am still breathing and yesterday is gone. Today is a new day and I don’t have to make those same mistakes again. And, although I have added some new situations to work out, they are nothing that God and I can’t work out together. However, I do have to say that God will be in charge and I need to follow His direction. This is my journey.
