Sharp Pebbles


Thoughts for today:

It takes a lot of maturity to understand and follow the steps 


that God orders for us.....don't let selfishness and immature 


behaviors cause you to lose your step.......a missed step can


send us down an unpaved path......an unpaved path CAN 


lead us back to where we were suppose to be going in the


first place, However.....it is quite possible that we may


encounter many sharp pebbles along the way.....?????







Oh well.....we all know how painful a sharp pebble can be 

when it approaches the delicate skin on the bottom of our 

foot/feet.      It can be brutal and cause us pain for many

days ahead.    


This is how I see the picture.......when I choose to take my

own  path and  I don't exactly follow the footsteps that God 

has ordered for me.   I can feel the pain and I experience

a bruised heart each time that I try to follow my own will.


 When I seek God ........  and I ask HIM 

to direct my steps.....then I know that I can rest assured that

I am heading in the direction that God has made for me...
   


Does this mean that I will never have problems or issues?

No....it does not!    But...what I do know is that when I 

follow the steps that God has chosen for me......I will find 

comfort and Peace.    I will be victorious!

We are not promised an easy road-- but that He will make the burden we carry light. We still have to walk- don't we?
He tells me-- THIS. Is my way ... Walk in it.
Praying for PEACE -- for you friend.
Always thank you for sharing what God gives!

Great analogy with the sharp petals, Shug. Sometimes it's really hard to sort out just exactly what it is that God wants us to do, however. Have a wonderful week.

Well said.We are always better off to be where God wants us to be than on our own path.

Hi Shug!

I really like this post! I've certainly stepped on a few sharp pebbles in my day! We truly do need to rely on the Lord, knowing that he is in control, but sometimes, those lessons we learn by stepping on sharp pebbles, can bring us right back to Him. So, I guess I'm kinda thankful for those sharp pebbles... :0)

Have a great week-end!

Hugs,
Barb
