Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, reminds us that we may plan our ways, but the Lord orders our steps. We may not always see where the steps are leading, but the message tells us that we will see the pattern and purpose of the pathway when we look back.
In looking back, I can recall many times I asked God why, times I obeyed-none too happily, and times I ended up going round and round the same mountain until I finally got it. When I asked why, God asked why not. When I grumbled and pouted and shouted, God laughed and said, “you’re cheating yourself out of joy.” And when I went round and round and round and round that mountain, I’m sure God took some Dramamine, shook His head, and said, “maybe this time she’ll get it.” You know what? Nothing changed! God did not relent! That path and those steps stayed right there waiting for me…until I walked them out. And guess what else. When I finally got there and looked back, I was overjoyed and thanked God for His persistence-because I saw how the beauty of my life had grown with each step.
