In Other Words Tuesday



I learned that faith isn't tested by how often God answers prayers with a yes,
but by my willingness to continue serving Him,
and thanking Him,
even when I don't have a clue as to what He is doing." : In my life, I am very willing to continue serving God, and thanking Him everyday. Even those times when I do not have a clue as to what He is doing. You know why? Because God always knows what He is doing in my life, and why He is doing it. Somethings are not meant for us to understand, one day we might know the reasons why, but we may not ever know the reasons why. I am fine with that, now, and for all eternity. I enjoy riding through life with God as my Pilot, He has everything under control. Take me wherever You choose God, You always know what is best for me. You know where I need to be, and when I need to be there. Your timing is perfect.

Thank you kindly for dropping by and leaving your comment wishing Bud and me a happy anniversary. It meant a lot to me, truly. And, visiting this morning with our grandson's celebration. Happy Tuesday Denise.

This is beautiful and an awesome reminder of where our hearts are. Do we seek Him for who He is or for what He does?

The Real Me! said...

That is so true. I'll save all the questions for heaven, but I know by the time I get there I won't care! LOL.
Hugs my sweet friend and thank you for your kind words.

Wow, can I relate to this! Amen! I don't always have as good of an attitude as you, though. Blessings, sweet sister! Had to come over and get my soul fed!

It is comforting to know He always knows what He's doing.

Debbie said...

Denise, I love how you wrote that God is your pilot. What a great analogy! I don't know how to fly a plane so I trust the pilot to get me where I need to go. If I can trust a pilot, I can surely trust my Lord. Thanks for that.

Laurie Ann said...

Denise, I have learned to say the same. Like the song says, "I Shall Not Be Moved." Keep that faith strong, sweetie!

Karen said...

What a blessing to have a God that does know what He is doing, we don't have to have a clue just faith in the One in charge and that's not us!

Pilar Stark said...

Wow, I just read that same quote in another blog... I wonder if God is telling me something..... I better write it down :)

Patricia said...

Denise, your example of simple trust is beautiful. I wish I could be more like you and not try to be so impatient and controlling of my circumstances. Thank you for sharing today!

Tiffany said...

Amen! A good word for today! Blessings!

RCUBEs said...

Amen! May He gives us a heart that always chooses to follow His ways. God bless.

Samantha said...

Such a good post for me today, I needed to hear this, so true.

Great post. Blessings my friend!

Amen and amen, dear friend. Things are so unsettled right now; friends are hurting in so many ways. But God's plan is bigger than we are, and we just have to trust. The Mercy Me song, "Jesus, Bring the Rain" is beautiful, but it's a hard one for me. "If that's what it takes to praise You, then Jesus, bring the rain". Laying it all down and saying "WhatEVER Your will is in my life, let it be so.. and I WILL praise You in ALL things?" hard.. but the reward is great..
love you!

What AMAZING and timely words "He has everything under control. Take me wherever You choose God, You always know what is best for me. You know where I need to be, and when I need to be there. Your timing is perfect." Thank you so much for sharing your heart!
