Quiet Moments With God: Where Are You Lord?
Eww. Sorry, Lord. You don't deserve that.
We know that life doesn't always make sense and sometimes it's downright unfair. Or so we think. But we only see a fraction of what God sees. He knows the beginning, the end and everything in between. And he always has our best interest in mind. Right?
WE TRUST HIM OR WE DON'T. RIGHT?
I'm not judging anyone who has a down day or a terribly bad moment. Really. Because we all do, don't we? I believe God's Word is true. And that when it says it is "God Breathed" then that's just what it is. I can trust it. I can trust God. He knows what He's doing--even when I'm having one of those I should never have gotten out of bed kind of mornings.
And so this morning, while I was griping and focusing on circumstances I was miserable. But God is so good to me. He just shook His head and said, "Bonnie, Bonnie, Bonnie. When are you going to learn? Look at me. I'm right here." That's when the Holy Spirit nudged me and I sat down and opened my Bible. And there He was, my Lord . . . waiting for me. Oh Lord, thank you for waiting. Thank you for your mercy. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your love!
Seek Him and you will find Him. And then the world will look sunnier.
Grace and peace to you from God,
