The truck needed a front end alignment. It pulled way to the right when driving down the straight road. I knew the tires would suffer, not to mention all else in driving and trying to keep it going where it was supposed to go.
This caused a thought process ~ how can my Lord Jesus keep me on the “straight and narrow” if I am out of alignment? It was then I heard His Holy spirit whispering to me:
Stop, my child and listen to Me.
I AM a God of peace, not punishment as you first think. My thoughts are for your good, no "baseball bats".
Come unto Me all you who are weary and I will give you rest. Rest your five track mind.
One focus. JESUS. Rest in My love, under My wings.
There are times and seasons.
Praise Me while I release you.
Prayer: Thank You dear Jesus that You care enough to drop gems into our hearts. That You help us take time, make time to get quiet before You. Quiet enough to apprehend that our wheels are going way too far to the left or the right when they should be following your straight highway. Praise You for correcting us with your gentle examples and nudges. Praise Your mighty name that You are love and loving actions follow wherever Your footsteps are. Please Help us to walk therein. AMEN

Isn't it great, the thoughts that God brings to our mind when we are alone and quiet before Him? I always prefer the still small voice to confusion at church. To me, that is what some of the praise becomes (confusion, and cutting in on the heartline of those that like to quietly lean on Jesus.) Now I know that you probably do not agree with that statement but I love you anyway! :)
