Today's thought....

One of my facebook friends shared this quote recently and I got permission to post it on here. It reminded me of a post on providence I shared a while back - it is comforting for me to remember that the Lord is behind everything that happens to us.

You would be very ashamed if you knew what the experiences you call setbacks, upheavals, pointless disturbances, and tedious annoyances really are. You would realize that your complaints about them are nothing more nor less than blasphemies---though that never occurs to you. Nothing happens to you except by the will of God, and yet [God's] beloved children curse it because they do not know it for what it is."
                                    Jean-Pierre de Caussade, from A Guide to Prayer for All God's People.

Before ending this post I just wanted to say that I'm thankful that the Lord brought the Es and I home safely last night as we traveled through some pretty bad weather. It was a good trip filled with wonderful fellowship and Lord willing I hope to share a post full of pictures tomorrow:-)

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
