Sometimes Christians like myself make looking for guidance from God a feverish sort of enterprise. It can become a bit of a fraught and anxious affair. Well, this thought was in my mind today in my waking moments. “Put your life into His hands, walk in obedience to His commands, and trust that the ordering of your steps is happening.” As Children of God, we are being guided even when we don’t necessarily have an awareness of it happening.
I like the following words from a poem in one of the books I turn to from time to time as a daily devotional aid, “Celtic Day Prayer, Book 2 (Page 889).”
“..you have put your life into My keeping,
and because you are
depending on Me for guidance and direction,
I shall give it.
Move on steadily,
and know that the waters that carry you
are the waters of My love and My kindness
and I will keep you on the right course.” (Frances J Roberts)
I hope these thoughts bless you today with an awareness of the peace of Christ.
Thank you Kenny, for that blessing.
Blessing is very much on my mind; exactly what is biblical blessing? Who for? Etc
Having spent a while at Ffald y Brenin in SW Wales (a Prayer House and retreat centre where it is the daily rhythm of prayer that brings the deep peace and blessing that permeate the place and impact others) I am fascinated by the power of blessing and reset on my commitment to keep that deep sense of the presence of the Lord in my home.
One of my searches produced this link to an article that might help others to see the depth of blessing, as it has done for me:
Thank you so much for this word!
Exactly the reassurance needed at the right time. Bless you Kenny
