Spk2Me in the Rollin' Convoy
As I set off on my commute to work this morning, I couldn't help but notice the message on the Causeway's jumbotrons.
"Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy...
Come on and join our convoy ain't nothin' gonna get in our way
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy across the USA Pontchartrain
Okay, so I really wasn't that excited, nor was the convoy much of a beautiful sight. But as my New Jersey friends say, "It is what it is. What are you gonna do?"
I kind of brushed it off for a bit, but due to this convoy the license plate just kept staying in my line of vision. Why?
Finally I said, "Okay, Lord, I get it. I am here. I hear you loud & clear." Then I proceeded to remind Him (& myself) of Who He is and to thank Him for Who He is in my life and for all of the blessings He bestows on me.
I imagine the pelican knows similar details about its flight path and resting points. It definitely knows where the fish are, as evidenced by the sharp sudden dives beak-first into the water!
You can draw your own conclusions, but for me this morning was definitely a time of my faithful God reminding me of His constant presence, reliability, guidance, protection and provision for me.
- He reminded me of my preparation for these times of fog in life.
- He reminded me that He has always protected me and even grown me through these times.
- Even when I did not trust Him in past fogs, I am still able to look back and see that I was safe the entire time---safe because He was leading me---safe because He was protecting me.
Do you know and trust the Pace-setter and Guide?
He has walked though tougher times than these
and made it through victoriously
so that we can have victory and peace as well.
How will you remind God (and yourself) of Who He is today
and Who He has proven Himself to be in your life?
Haelie, thank you so much for blessing me and my readers today with such an awesome post. Don't you love how God speaks to us? He can grab our attention anywhere at anytime. There have been so many times I couldn't see through the fog and thought it impossible to move forward, but God made a way. He showed me to trust Him. Praise Jesus! Blessings to you sweet friend. It is my hope that you will visit us again and share all that God is doing in your life!
