Day Five: Feverish Ramblings
I was so excited to do my daily reading on a Sunday, certain it would enrich my worship leading experience. But alas, I had to take a sick day. So I read today from my couch in my pajamas...and here is my way of romanticizing that with a picture of my cat socks and tissues.
Something my friend and I have been talking a lot about lately is "old vs. new." Satan is so full of old tricks and God says, "See, I am doing a new thing!" (Is. 43:19).
Satan is always pulling the same crap. Isolating people, making them feel like they are alone, Filling people with lies and doubts. But God is continually creating and moving and He stays the same, but man is He surprising.
This idea^^ is kind of a tangent from the main point I felt laid on my heart today. But also, not.
God knows what He is doing. And who am I to question it? I heard a quote the other day,
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end... But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you... And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone." -Thomas Merton
It is good to seek after what God wants for me to do, but I cannot go about it as though I'm trying to figure it out on my own. I should seek, not attempt to create what it is I'm trying to find.
God has already created.
I'm probably rambling now. I am sick!
"Does the clay say to the potter, 'What are you making?'" (Is. 45:9)
"To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..." (Eph. 3:20).
Seems to me God is just going to have to keep and keep reminding me daily, these days, that He's got it all figured out! I'm just along for the ride.
He's creating, He's created.
He's doing, He's done.
He's working, right now.
He's leading, right now.
Just be still.
