Refer to my story dated April 1, 2018
Remember when I told you I didn’t know what God wanted me to do with my life for Him? He began asking me this question at the beginning of Lent. I have been praying, perhaps over-praying, about this since. Then my blog on 4/1/2018 came to mind.
I try my best to read the Bible daily and I have several books of inspiration that I toggle back and forth from morning to morning. This morning, after having gone to a Bible study last night and continuing to ask myself this question, the first thing I read in my book, 100 Things God Loves About You, (various assembled unknown authors), was “God loves your story”. Here’s what it had to say:
“All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
- – Psalm 139:16
I researched which Bible this passage came from and found that I have a whole slew of Bibles!!! Anyway, it comes from the NIV New Life Application Study Bible.
I’d like to add to it verses 17 and 18:
17.”How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18.Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.”
To me, this is so wonderful because He thinks I have an amazing story! I know because scripture tells me that God, YHWH, Yahweh, Jehovah, my Lord, tells me Himself that it was written long before I was born. He knew every twist of the secret plan, every unexpected direction, every happy and sad moment(s). Wherever I went, He had been. He will walk before me and with me as my Scout, my Pathfinder, my Guide, and my Friend.
When I put my trust in Him, He promises me the utmost best of happily, heavenly, endings forever after. Isn’t that just completely, totally, and miraculously awesome!
