There are times in life when The Lord opens your eyes, and you see how ungrateful you have been. He has carefully placed us on a path perfect for our destination yet we gripe and complain. We somehow think this is not happening according to my time or even everyone else’s time table. We never really just trust God.
Having just finished a visit to the new area where we are moving, I have to admit starting out I really had some worries in the back of my mind. I didn’t plan this path so I knew God would give me the grace. But, how much grace would I need?
I cannot explain how grateful I am for the path that has lead us to this point. The good, the bad and the ugly. I have never been this excited about heading anywhere. I could never appreciate all that The Lord showed us this week if it were not for his loving hand guiding us on what has seemed like a longer road than normal. He is far too good to us. I don’t just want this to be a moment of gratitude and then on to the next problem. I want to see Him as we continue on this path to strive for His glory. I want to experience His presence in the good and the bad. I don’t want to wait until I finally get “there” to stop complaining and look around at His goodness. I want to see His goodness and worship Him in the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him. (Ecclesiastes 7:14
