God is leading our family in a new way. I know it is a good way for all His ways are good, but what do I do?
I guess I just keep doing what I'm doing and then wait to see where God leads me. Sometimes we have to go step by step. Sometimes that is all the light we get -- just enough for the next step.
Today in our BBC (Blunt Bible Club) we are going to talk about the birth of two babies: the birth of John the Baptist and the birth of our Messiah, Jesus Christ. If you have time, you can read it for yourselves on Biblegateway.com.
Something we all have in common with Mary, Joseph, Zachariah and Elizabeth is that we are ordinary people, We are loved so much by Our Father in Heaven; and He has a plan for each of us.
Sometimes that plan is a surprise to us, but it is never to Him. He has been preparing us for the surprised plan all our lives.
If we live faithfully, if we keep putting Him first, He will make the way and He will get us ready for what is to come.
Think of Esther. Have you read Esther? What a great book. Read it if you haven't. I think there is just eight chapters -- you can read it in less than an hour.
Esther's uncle said to her, "if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”
When you're standing at the edge of change look up. He's got a plan and it is very good. He's prepared you. Don't worry. Don't fret. Don't second-guess yourself. It is up to Him and He will bring it about!
So, this is what I'm going to do today.
Thank you Jesus.
