Still On Adventure
Greetings from the land of New Zealand. We have arrived and are still on our adventure. We are presently in waiting mode as we wait for our things to arrive and to move into our new house. Yes, we found one and God is simply amazing. He gave us everything we have asked for. I am even allowed to have a small pet in a rental, which is unbelievable in a rental. This is my adventure and I can tell you that it is a wonderful adventure. Wonderful because when God leads, He leads into the very best.
I want to encourage you that God has an adventure for you as well. If you are His child, He has a plan and purpose for your life. That is your adventure. You don’t want to miss it. So get ready, because it will be an e-ticket ride. Do you know what that is? Disneyland use to have ticket books. The “e” ticket rides were the best rides. Well, my life is an e-ticket ride. God is the ticket giver and He never any junk. He always give His children the very best. All He is asking of you is that you are a honest to goodness child of His and that you are willing.
I have noticed many of His children try to manipulate Him into giving them what they think is best. I know a number of Christians who tell God what they want and if He doesn’t do it right away, they take over and make it happen. I know, I was one of those. I would ask God to tell my DH to do something and if He didn’t then I would go tell my DH to do it. It doesn’t work, believe me. Many people will say, “God told me to tell you to give me a thousand dollars.” (or whatever) I had an aunt who said that God told her to go to a certain casino and play a certain slot machine. Now come on, God told her? It sounds like magic words. God isn’t a genie. You can’t click your fingers and make Him dance to your tune. He won’t even be your co-pilot. He is either God almighty or He isn’t. These people try to make their own adventures and it is at the best 5th place. Only God’s way is the best.
Many push their way through life, shattering doors and cutting out new trails. Some people think of this as the Protestant Ethic. You know, I’ll do it myself, thank you. With God all things are possible, but with God means, He is in charge. He doesn’t and won’t tag along like a little puppy dog. My life is truly incredible. He leads, He provides and He always gives me the very best. On my part, I am thankful. Without being thankful, you will get no where. Maybe right now, your life seems dismal and sad, but you can be thankful. Be thankful with an honest heart. Take time right now and thank God for what you have, no matter how little or how much. Remember when I wrote about the lady in China who was given a can of Coke and she was so very thankful. She had nothing, but a can of Coke, but she had peace, joy, thankfulness, an honest heart and good mind. Hey, don’t you at least have that much? Sure you do. Angels you are on an adventure. Don’t let Satan tell you otherwise. I am now back on line and will be faithful to write again soon. Until then, praise God Angels, praise God.
