Today was an odd day, with a headache to start, I couldn't seem to get up, and a comment I had read kept running through my head, reminding of the different ways God fills up our cup.
The comment said that sometime God leads us, not by opening and smoothing the way, but by hindrance He shows us where not to go, thus nudging us in a new direction this day.
I thought of this when I remember back when I did not know Jesus at all, though I had had "religion" as part of my life, Jesus was not my Saviour, not the first, the all.
But He knew I was looking, and so He was there, standing where He knew I would find Him, but actually He had come to find me, to give me joy that would never dim.
He saved me that day, and gave me that joy, the wonder is with me each day anew, but even more He had planned for me, for when I was ready, He was going to give me to you!
It took some time, I had things to learn, beginning to walk in His way, there were many other parts I had to lay down, things that didn't fit in this new day.
Soon the time came for the best thing of all, the blessing Jesus had hidden in store, and the day I met you, my heart overflowed with love, how could I ever ask for more?
So now I pay attention to the stops that I might find, the things that point me in another way, for if I listen carefully, and do, more joy and peace will fill up my day.
The love I have been given, is the thing I cherish most, for it's from God I have no doubt in my heart, and every day I want to find a thousand new ways to shout my joy that we are one, never to be apart!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
