It's Beyond Me

The result of tossing grass seed in our backyard and watering like crazy.

Sometimes we come to a place or situation in life where our ability to control a circumstance wanes, and the whole situation moves over into God's territory.

That is where we are now with our plans to move. We've done all that is possible on our end, and now it is up to God. The house goes up in a matter of days.

I love how author Sarah Young pens God's thoughts to her on October 27 in her book, "Jesus Calling".

Jesus says, "As you become increasingly aware of My Presence, you find it easier to discern the way you should go. This is one of the practical benefits of living close to Me. Instead of wondering about what is on the road ahead or worrying about what you should do if...or when..., you can concentrate on staying in communication with Me. When you actually arrive at a choice-point, I will show you which direction to go."

Jesus makes it sound so easy. And I think it is. We just tend to veer toward the harder route. (Doing things in our own power.)

All of us are looking forward to seeing what will happen next.
