God is so good!

I got a fresh word from the Lord last night! Yahoo! I love that when that happens!

My heart feels lighter this morning. I have been searching for answers from the Lord for the past several months and last night He spoke clearly to my heart through His Word.

God has showed me how I run ahead of Him. I see Him working in an area or moving in my life and I fill in the rest of the blanks without His help and not in His timing. Why is that? I beleive that it is pride. Pride on my part that I know what God is thinking. That I can second guess what He is up to. Rarely am I right, yet I continue this way. Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Hmmm... I get frusterated with my children when they interup me in mid-sentence or take a command I have given them and then run in a wayward direction with it. But that is what I do with God. And then I live in frustration when things don't go the way I thought they would or should. I want to be patient and stay by God's side. Not lagging behind but definitely not running ahead.

Thank you Lord for never loosing your patience with me. Help me to stay in the shelter of you wings.

Jill, I can completely relate to this! I finish people's sentences for them all the time and I am really working on being a better listener. Now I find out that I need to do it with God too?! :)

Good word!
