"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. " Isa 58:8-9
The Lord has been really sweet to me the last week. He's reminded me in three different ways of how true Isa 58:8-9 is. He has shown me how He is using what I think is horrible, to be of benefit for His kingdom. I never would have thought the heartbreak I had gone through 12 years ago would be redeemed in any way...until tonight. I wouldn't have thought it of the heartbreak from 20 years ago, or the heartbreak from 7 years ago. I may sing that He is my Redeemer and Friend, but this week I've become so much more aware of those attributes.
I am constantly in wonder of what He will do next, never remembering that He is doing something now...even in my lazy dayness. I am abundantly grateful for His reminders that I am His beloved, that He is changing lives and that He has allowed me to be apart of that process. I am excited about the new stages of life my friends are in the midst of and excited about the desire to enjoy today and not worry about what tomorrow will bring or how high the gas prices (and every other price) will become. He is my Provider, He is my Redeemer and He is those things today, as well as tomorrow and the next day, just as He has been in the past.
All praise to Him whose ways are higher than mine, whose thoughts and ways...I cannot fathom.
