So it begins! Another day, with a lot of “What If’s, What For’s, How Come’s, Why Now’s, Could I’s, Should I’s, I Will’s, and I won’ts! Oh yeah, the questions come a calling .. just parading through the beginning of a new day, a new season, a new week, a new start, like they seek a stage to act on, just like they always do! They leave us guessing on the next move, the next step, the next moment and the next turn. The why’s and the wherefore’s can be so daunting really, can’t they? They can be so overwhelming for our “oh so human” frailty and fragility. Thing is, when they overtake us, they just rob the joy right out from under our noses and take control of our life. Oh but, our Lord delights in direction. He delights in giving it and He delights in our seeking his face for help on that next step. The Psalmist in Psalm 32: 8 knew it all too well didn’t he when he penned our Lord’s words?
“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.” Psalm 32:8
Psalm 37:23-24 –
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.”
So yeah, He truly does set us stepping off in the right direction and oh He wants so much to dole out a dab of extra grace for those steps and wrap us up tightly in His ever-loving love. So, rather than looking at the obstacles then, let’s look into His gentle, tender face and into tender eyes that saw you from the cross and beyond. Caring, sovereign eyes that see all and stamped His approval on you before your creation. That’s why you’re here. He delighted in you and saw the potential and said it was good. So for all your daunting questions and thoughts, yeah, for sure, He’s got those too. He’s got your tiredness, your weary bones, your aching heart, your lonely soul, your rejection and he’s got all those relentless questions. He’s working them out, so let’s seek His advice on our new beginnings, new days and new weeks and let’s find healing in the sweet name of Jesus and in His sweet presence let’s find peace for new beginnings.
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5: 7
” I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
