The truth is there are a million steps, and we don’t even know what the steps are, and worse, at any given moment we may not be willing or even able to take them; and still worse, they are different for you and me and they are always changing. I have come to believe the sooner we find this truth BEAUTIFUL (empasis mine), the sooner we will fall in love with the God who keeps shaking things up, keeps changing the path, keeps rocking the boat to test our faith in Him, teaching us to not rely on easy answers, bullet points, magic mantras, or genies in lamps, but rather in His guidance, His existence, his mercy and His love.
Personally I was miserable before I understood these ideas……..

Had to share this passage as it is my new years resolution. To in this next year rest in the truth of it. That God is a God of infinite wisdom and love and that my coming to know Him and follow His Son is what I am made for.... Broad enough to be ridiculous….and impossible to succeed at, making it a typical resolution for me and yet coupled with the verse I read this morning Luke 1: 37 For nothing is impossible with God.".
I am thinking 2006 is going to be a pretty……..exciting year.
