So, you’ve got it all figured out, do you?  You’ve made a blueprint for your life and expect everything to fall into place.  You begin to put things into action and suddenly reality sets in.

Your child needs braces – the doctor says you have cancer – you lose your job, your income, your pride suffers.  Then come the little bumps – your car won’t start and you really don’t want to max out your credit car getting it repaired.  You break a tooth.  Your back goes out and you’re in the middle of getting your house ready to market.  Your hair won’t cooperate and you have a big interview for that job you need so much.  Someone reacts negatively to one of your posts.  Your spouse has misinterpreted something you’ve said.  Your washing machine breaks down.

When we try to run things. we can anticipate those nasty bumps that happe when we least expect them.  We’re human beings.  We think we can manage our lives.  We need structure and goals to get motivated.  God designed us that way to separate us from the animals.  He gave us intellect, a free will and the ability to make smart decisions. Still when we forget to include Him in the equation, we can expect a roller coaster ride through life.

1 Corinthians 15:58 tells us, “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

God doesn’t  promise to make us rich, or famous, or anything that gain success in this world, but He has promised, those who  believe in Him, that they will inherit eternal life. Let His plan work for you.  You’ll find the directions in His Holy manual for life – The Bible.




About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
