God Will Make A Way

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19

The last few years of my life have been a revelation of what God can do when I give Him my complete trust and control of my life.  Defying the grim statistics for my health issues, He has shown me His grace is sufficient.  For years I wandered aimlessly through my life, my spirit parched.  Depleted, desperate, dejected.  Surrendering a time of emotional and spiritual healing to only God, He taught me the meaning of “I can do all things through Christ.”  He lovingly held me when I felt alone, showing me He is always there.  My healing time is finished and now is the time to take another leap of faith in living forward.

Surrendering my future in prayer for His will, I started making plans and financial budgets in my anxious way.  God answered my prayer, but not in the smooth transition I was hoping.  Like the children of Israel, I needed a refresher course in total submission.   In one day He swiftly made it very clear to me the last conflict in my heart.  Routine car maintenance became an entire day of an unforeseen costly repair.  Mail had the last bill for my yearly deductible.   I hadn’t completely surrendered my concern over the financial cost of change.   I got the point.  I had to chuckle.

I cannot see “the forest for the trees” right now, but as He has been faithful in the past, God will lead me through this unknown and it will be for my good.  Some lingering twinges of concern are turning to anticipation for what God has is in store for me.  He will make a way.

“Dear Lord forgive me for trying to do things in my way.  You are ever faithful, leading me through physical difficulties, disappointments, a broken life.  Thank you for my blessings today and for those in my future.  I love you.  Amen.”
