How is God guiding your future?February 22, 2016 - Author: Bernadette Saddik - No Comments
“Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants, and Thy glory unto their children. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish Thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish Thou it.” Psalm 90:16-17 KJV
You know those moments when you don’t know what the next step is — what God wants for you — but you know you have all the information you need to figure it out?
Yet the answer still eludes you, and the problem grows bigger.
I know how frustrating it is.
We pray, we struggle, we cry out to God, we wrestle some more…
Then beautiful inspiration strikes.
Notice how that inspiration, that gifted moment, tastes a lot like grace?
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18 KJV
Megan Freeman has those struggles and those moments too. The link leads to her illustrative contemplation about what it means to embrace the adventure of growing in grace:
Puzzles by Megan Freeman at Life in Metaphors
“The puzzle of life is a beautiful thing. Sitting next to the Father, I scour the jumbled pile of pieces looking…”
We grow in these moments when we take off our blinders and let God show us that next step onto a firm foundation.
Those outlines of vibrant bluebells and fragrant daphne.
Those ever-filling pictures of vibrant purpose and fragrant joy.
How beautiful and empowering it is to open ourselves to the grace of God’s plans in our lives!
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 KJV
So, fellow explorers in faith, I ask you:
How can our lives, in the mundane, in the spectacular, reveal grace’s beauty?
How do you let God put together the puzzle pieces in your life?
What is your foundation?
How is God guiding your future?

May your day be brighter and your dreams sweeter. God bless
“Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” Luke 6:47-48 KJV
