In the midst of my own downfalls…

I’m behind on my Bible reading.

***

I have been for some time now and I’m having a hard time getting back in the groove.

Surely I’m not the only one who does this?

***

But I”m not here today to talk about my downfalls … but about the Lord’s provisions in the midst of my downfalls!

You see, last night I began praying about something specific.  As I was getting ready for bed I asked God if He wanted me to pursue this new thing in my life.  I didn’t want to make a decision based on my own fleshly desires but wanted to walk in the Lord’s perfect will for my life.

***

Lord, is this something you want me to pursue?  I don’t want to make a decision before I hear from you.  I know I like the idea of this new thing but what would you like me to do?  Because even though I like this idea, it also scares me to death.  Not only is it something new and different but it would be a new location and new faces…and I’m comfortable right where I am.  What would You have me to do?  Do I pursue this new thing?

So I crawled in bed and even though it was late, I was bound and determined to get in at least one chapter before I went to sleep.  I clicked on my Bible Reading Plan and backed up to where I am supposed to be and this is what I read…

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation,  and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” – Genesis 12:1-3

Can I just tell you that I cried…

I know that I’m not saying exactly what I’m praying about… I will in time…but just know this…

…even when we are behind or lacking, God is enough and still right on time!
