God's Leading Is Often Illogical

Your Leading is often so illogical, Lord!
Not observing the rules of correct reasoning!
Your Leading is often so surprising!
So unexpected!
So incredible!
So amazing!
Who am I to question where and how You Lead?
My mind is too small.
My eyes are limited in their sight.
My knowledge is restricted
by what I do not know.
But the heart and soul of me know
that You are God!
All-Loving!
All-Caring!
All-Seeing!
All-Knowing!
The heart and soul of me know
that Your Ways are not my ways!
that Your Thoughts are not my thoughts!
that Your Leading in infinite and immeasurable!

In my own understanding,
the doubts do come, Lord.
In my own understanding,
I come to You
with my unbelief,
and in Your Presence,
I unload the doubts.
I do not repress them.
I do not stifle them.
I do not refuse to admit their existence.
I give the doubts to You, Lord.
I surrender them,
trusting You to take them . . .
acting on the faith I have . . .

You become my Faith!
My Trusting-Place!
Leaning not upon my own understanding,
I choose the Faith and Trust of You
instead of the doubts that would
cripple,
hinder,
grieve,
and defeat me. . .
believing that the Faith and Trust of You
will overcome the doubts. . .

I let go. . .
and in the “letting-go,”
I find my Faith and my Trust in You have grown.
I do not need to Know, Lord.
I do not need to understand Your Leading.
I need only to follow,
trusting as I go.

My thirst is filled by You!
My hunger is satisfied!
You are Alive and Moving in me!
Your Hand reaches out -
intervening,
undergirding,
and lifting me to a higher plain
than self. . .
filling me with the Joy
of being in the center of Your Will. . .
