As I drove away from a recent retreat this spring, I reminisced with the Lord about the weekend, the new found friends I met and the memories made. After thinking back on the session where I shared my testimony, I felt the Lord speak into my heart, your book.
My book, I thought? I haven’t worked on that for years. So, the next week after arriving home, I pulled up the book, I began eight years ago, on my computer and started to write, add to, take away from and here I am four weeks later at chapter six.
God, What about My Plans? A Journey to a Satisfied Life will walk you through what I have learned from battling Cushing’s Syndrome, while at the same time, having you reflect on your very own walk with God. We will consider our journey with God; His view and our view; two views of the same road trip. We will dig into the word of God together with reflective questions at the end of each chapter for small group discussion. (Photo via Pixabay)
Since the writing of my first Bible study, The Secret is Out, I have wanted to write another study. I had plans to begin writing last fall, but I felt God say, wait. I didn’t understand why I was to wait, but I have walked with God for three decades and one thing I have learned, is to listen to Him, obey and then joy and peace will follow. I do plan to pick up the pen again for another study, but for the moment, I need to obey and finish what He began twenty years ago. His story told through the eyes of His servant girl.
Believers, may we love God, obey His voice and hold fast to Him. It’s a road trip and it can get a little bumpy with detours we never planned but we need to take in the scenery, enjoy our fellow travelers and take breaks as needed. God’s plans are your plans; you just may not know or see them, yet.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (NASB)
19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, 20 by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
