Today I am enjoying a walk down memory lane as I look through my Bible at pages I have journaled this past year. I love to revisit them from time to time and contemplate the lesson behind what I journaled and what I learned from it. I will share a few today as a reminder of God’s goodness in my life.
“Praise the Lord for he has shown me the wonders of his unfailing love”
I believe this is my favorite page of all time (so far). It reminds me to praise Him always, because His love is enough for me and never ends. I feel so blessed when I read this passage.
“And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and sea obey him?
Another lesson to remind me that God is always in control of my life, today and every day.
“And who knows whether you have not come to this kingdom for such a time as this?”
This page holds a very special lesson for me. My husband and I recently moved from our Colorado home of 15 years to plant a church in central Texas. We had not planned this, or even thought about the possibilities. God clearly spoke to us and led us here for such a time as this. I learned to trust in Him and follow Him…even if it didn’t make a lot of sense at the time, it definitely was His will. God reveals His plans to us at the right time, when we listen and obey for such a time as this!
Take some time today, this first day of spring 2017, to reflect on the wonders of God. it will lift your spirits as you focus on what He has done in your life!
