Wednesday Wisdom!!!

Certainly not Deb's wisdom....but God's and HIS alone!!!


We went to a friend's home to watch the movie, "Courageous" Monday evening.  What an amazing movie.  Just as Jess had forewarned me....we were laughing our heads off one minute, then immediately start crying the next.  As we traveled home, Pappy and I were discussing the situation with his job loss.  We were talking about how we just didn't know what to do....where to start....what direction to take.  He shared that he had prayed for God to lead Him to the job He wants him to have....to not just take a job for the sake of having a job.   As I sit down to do my devotions each morning, I ask God to speak to me thru His word....and here was His word yesterday morning....Tuesday morning....right after I had my plea of desperation around 10:30 Monday night.  As I type this I have tears in my eyes because of how humbling it is for our God to get so personal with us....so intimate....knowing exactly what's on our minds and in our hearts!!!


Proverbs 3:5-7a
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.
Don't be impressed with your own wisdom.


So....we will continue to wait!!!


(don't forget to turn off my PlayList above before listening)


Thank you, Precious Lord, for these times of waiting.  It's not easy...but I continue to cling to your word in Jeremiah that you are going to give us a HOPE and a future.  You are AWESOME God....we've seen you provide in ways that is just beyond our understanding.  I don't even want to understand....because you are GOD....and we trust You.  Please continue to give us Your peace while we continue to wait...on You...to fulfill Your promises to us....Your children!!!
In Jesus' Most Blessed and Holy Name we pray....AMEN!!!


In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!




Its Hump Day!

  1. Hi Deb,
    Thank you for your visit and for this post. Yes I can see what you are saying. Also now, my husband is likely to be made redundant very soon. He is past retiring age, but the job he has is within his capabilities and he will miss it, financially and in other ways, we both will, there will be a lot of adjusting to be done.

    This coupled with a further treatment for his bladder tumour, involving a live t.b. vaccine, is rather disconcerting. But yes I too (most of time) feel a peace, as I am waiting on the Lord. Hope you will not mind, if I try to put the video on my blog too.

    God Bless Nita.

  2. Waiting is the hard thing for us at times because we live in a microwave world! Quick fix! God's timing is perfect and I have to remind myself of that at times for sure! He is right on time! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
