Navigating through the unknown...

At pivotal times in my life I've arrived at a place i call the "deep-sigh point". That is the point where, my over working mind and the much calmer spirit are at odds. Where there's an undefinable pull to head in one direction but a more sensible pull in the other. Several people I know have experienced this confusing state at one time or the other, perhaps even you have.

At those very crucial often life-changing points, these truths have kept me standing, and I hope they will help you along on your unique journey.

1) Isaiah 30:21 "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, ..." This particular excerpt when I discovered it recently was so comforting! It reinforced the well worn verse 5b of Joshua 1 that says, "I will never leave you or forsake you". Those times when the next turn/move doesn't seem clear enough, nothing soothes the soul more than the all-knowing God Himself promising you navigation through the darkness.

2) Psalm 32:8 "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye" Herein lies another promise of guidance and instruction through life's processes. We don't have to wonder if God's involved; He's watching over us jealously to assure we stay on our destiny's track.

3) Isaiah 49:16 "Behold I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me." Now friends, this verse showcases how important we are to our creator. We all know our palms are always in our face; God is saying HIS palms contain our 'walls' which refers to hinderances, barriers that stand in our way. They are before Him, to work out in DUE SEASON.

Guidance from God will come directly from His word, through other believers or directly to you while you pray, meditate or journal. There isn't a single most effective method, save to really tune in. So I stand with you today; as you trust God through life's different and unpredictable dynamics...He will keep you in perfect peace!
