I thought about Yesterday, and more today, I see that the path lies before me, and its not what I have done that matters, its what I will do, God knew me before I was born, that thought still boggles my mind. I am learning to accept that there are many things that I do not understand, but faith allows me to move with out knowing. If I wait till I see and understand all things then it will be much too late to find that which I need. The areas in my life that I know to be talents are all creative, I can not contain my creative urges, I grew up in a doctrine where dancing was a bad thing….Yet if it was bad then why did God make me good at it, there are things to be considered, I must learn to raise my talents to God so that he may use them as he sees fit.

Verse for the day : “I am your creator. You were in my care even before you were born” Isaiah 44:2(CEV)

Day One

I was sitting in relfection today as I considered what my journey was, first its not a journey to learn about myself, its a journey to learn about God, and I think in that I will find myself…God has a plan for me, and I desire to find what it is, this is my path to do so. As I sat here I was wondering what it could be that God had planned for someone like me, I do not feel that I was that special kind of someone that God made his plans for…I was wrong, I feel his hand comforting me as I reflect, I feel his love around me, I am no closer yet to knowing his plan but I am closer to accepting that I do not have to know.

That seems to be the secret becoming comfortable with not being in control. Its a hard things to do in life to juyst let go of what you think you are and should be and ask god to make you what he planned you to be. Well if you are reading this, I am praying for you, and myself that we can find this acceptance….Please pray for me, prayer is our weapon in this dark world we live in, he may not always anwesr in the way you like or even a way you understand but god hears and anwsers all prayers in his way.

Verse for the Day – “Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him: Collossians 1:16b (Msg)
