Sinking Sand

I am so thankful for scripture.....for God's Word.....for the most precious book ever written.

The Bible....

We (I) need God's word DAILY, to help me make it through each day.  I can't even begin to imagine not being able to read my bible....DAILY.

Sure, there are days when ALL goes well and I feel like I have been given a bushel basket of pixie dust.  I can fly through a day like this, and feel as if (I) have the whole world in my hands.  But, within hours, I firmly stand knowing that I am nothing.....that it is God and God only, holding my hand.   HE, in his gentleness.....in HIS love, allows me, to make the choice of believing that (I) am doing great things on my own.  GOD, in his awesomeness......knows all about the adventure trail that I am running toward.   His wisdom is always hard to find when I choose to travel the off beaten path.

Honestly, it doesn't take long for me to realize where my strength comes from.  I can't tell you how many times I have found myself stuck in quick sand.....all because I tried to do things my way.  I end up on a trail that leads me straight into a sinking hole.

Thank you Lord for gently nudging me when I try to be the one in control.

Hugs to all my friends..

What IS your header picture? It looks like something from anther planet...those big balls, they look like yarn balls or something, is this in your yard? Wouldn't it be awful if we only had ourselves to rely on? We are so very limited...

Hi Shug, I love your lavender background! And the header photo is pretty, but I am wondering like Ginny what the green things are? :)
Have a wonderful day!

We are all guilty of wanting to go our own way.

We have a wonderful God who desires that we walk with Him.I know that all too often I try to do things in my own strength,how foolish that is.
