Ordained steps

Are you going through things in your life that you don't understand right now?

Throughout my life I have periodically experienced those times when things happen that I just don't understand. There are times when I do what is right and see good results. But there have also been times when I've thought I was doing what was right but was not seeing good results.

It's in those hard times that I choose to remember that God is in control of the universe and He is working for my good, even when I can not see it and do not feel like it. I guess this when faith comes in; choosing to believe in God, that He is working on my behalf, even when I do not see it.

This is why I adore Proverbs 20:24 (NASV):

Man's steps are ordained by the LORD,
How then can man understand his way?

This verse reminds me that I only have the view in front of me but God has the whole picture.

What's a favorite verse of yours that you keep close to your heart to remind yourself of when things don't seem to be going well?

I have days like this! Sometimes I wonder if I question to much. Hope you have a great weekend.

When experiencing days like this... I just let it pass and think of this...

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding,in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6

R u kidding me? Its like I don't understand EVERYTHING!!

But I also like Prov 20:24 altho it makes me mad sometimes why He wouldn't take me where I want to be..
Sometimes it feels He's forgotten about me completely altho I know that's not true. It just feels that way sometimes
