I’m Sorry I missed You

Looking back over my life, I see times that God worked things out just like He wanted to. It might not have been what I wanted. He had to drag me kicking, and screaming in most situations, fighting Him aaallllll the way.

Even so, God has His way.

All the times I didn’t see God’s hand working out all the details, big and small. Missed it. I see it now but at the time, I didn’t see it. Looking back it’s an “ah ha” moment.

We can’t “see” God but if we could, would we see Him?

???

The world starts to crumble, first knee jerk reaction, what do I do? Get in gear, jump in, fix it. When it all gets too hard, becomes impossible, a last resort, then I remember to pray.

Decades ago this wasn’t even prayer either. It was grumbling, murmuring, complaining.

“Oh, by the way, O LORD, something bad happened. Sorry I didn’t come to You first. I wanted to fix it all by myself. I made a huge mess, it ‘s worse. Why did You let this happen?”

Since all things end at God’s feet. Why didn’t I start there? Why didn’t I run there first? Yeah, I don’t know either. :):)

There could have been a lot more abundant living in my life, if I had just ran to Him, first.

God has shown me this. Many, many times.

I always end up at His feet anyway :):)

He is so Good, all-knowing, Almighty. Ready to teach. Ready to receive us, Ready to forgive us. Ready to help us.

Run to God.

I love you God :):)

God Bless you :):)

My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul. –Job 10:1

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. –Matthew 10:28
