In Other Words Tuesday


"If we could understand everything God does, then He'd have to be a small god--small enough to fit in our little minds."~ Randy Alcorn ~:Gripe and complain is all we seem to do sometimes. Why me God? When are you going to answer my prayer God? Hello, are you there God? Are You listening to me God? We spend so much time talking about our problems, and so little time being still before God. If we would open our ears, as well as our hearts, and close our mouths, and quiet the complaining, we would be able to hear the still small sweet voice of God. God is still on the throne, He is in control. We do not need to know why He does the things He does, we only need to know, that He knows exactly what He is doing. Quit trying to be in control all the time, be the passenger in your life, and let God do the driving. Believe me, He knows where you are going.

I enjoyed your site. I'm sure I'll be back. I was goggling and came across it. I often say we so often knock but don't stick around till the door is open. Or we pray on the go. Where is our priorities.
Stop by and visit my site sometime.

I agree, sometimes God would give us an answer, but we can't hear him over all our complaining! But even in the times when he doesn't seem fit to show us why, we can rest in the fact that he is still worthy of our trust!

If I could understand God then he would be like me and I know that no one would want to worship a God like me.
