Sometimes I Get In The Way
That is the thought that crosses my heart and mind today. Through a series of situations, I ponder to myself, “Did I get in the way?” We started a new Bible study last night in our ladies group and when we were finished I got to talking with one of the ladies. I told her I would email her something we were talking about. As promised I did, but in my short-lived, sometimes overwhelmed mind I forget to do certain things that lead to a night of sleeplessness for my husband and early morning crankiness. After reading her reply to the email, my eyes followed through to what I forward her. A reminder of God’s truths for my life. Not just my life but for all believers. In need of some quiet time with God, I opened my devotional and the same theme(for my life at the moment) was pointed out. Which is leaving me to still ponder, “Am I getting in the way?”
The verse below resonated through my heart, even though it was appropriate for the devotion and the topic of this devotion. Nor was it part of the email I had sent. God’s words met me where I was at.
“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10 (NIV)
My mind was going though the “what if’s”, I had not forgotten….. I had checked…..What if? That is when God walked in with His grace and mercy. Trust in Me, Seek Me with each of your decisions. Don’t let emotions blur your sight. Allow My will to be done.
Then I poured my heart out to God in prayer. He will lead me(us) to the truths that I(we) need and give us the knowledge we need when we seek after His will for our life.
Do I allows get this right? Sadly, I do not. But minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day; I am working on it.
In His Love, Crisi
