I sit reflecting on bye-gone days and I am mesmerised!. . .
You see,a few days ago a learned man, during a conversation, stated that though I may move to distant shores, the LORD has planned every step of the way!. . .
Although the statement was brief and immersed in a variety of additional topics the impact of those words reverberated around my mind for days.
You see, I sit here today, alive and well, having lived for a good few years, I have reached many a mile stone in my life and I have accumulated history that I am now able to look back over.
As I look back over the years I realise that I could have reached this same point in time without a lot of the worry and stress that accompanied a lot of my life’s journey!. . .
As I reflect I can see the beauty in those few words spoken, “The LORD has planned every step of the way”. . .
Not a few steps, not occasional steps. . .but ‘every’ single step.
It is mesmerising, take a moment, stop what your doing!. . .
Though the world may be racing by, though calamity may surround you, stop. . .
Just for a moment and listen!. . .and remember!. . .isolate your thoughts from the commotion of the world, and remember!.
Do you remember that day when you first believed. . .when you realised the creator of all things loved you!. . .do you remember?. . .do you remember the hopes, dreams and aspirations you used to have?. . .do you remember?. . .
Now, visualise the calamities, the worries and strife that upholster your life’s path. . .that stole your hopes, your dreams, and ask yourself the one small question I am now asking myself!. . .
Could my life have been, and can my life be. . .stress free, full of peace, sweeter, ‘if’ I trust the LORD more, believe HIM more, and wait for HIS direction more!. . .
I sit here believing that the answer is undoubtably ‘yes’.
I believe that GOD, the creator, maintainer and provider of all things, has a plan for all who believe in HIM, and who ‘trust’ Him.
The LORD has a plan, that includes the minutest of details, from work, rest and play down to which molecules are good for us to inhale, and on which day we should inhale them.
But the most mesmerising part is, all we have to do is believe in our GOD, trust HIM. . .
. . .and breathe. . .
