I'm reminded...

I'm reminded today that His way is the best way. Not sure what brought this reminder. Just a sweet quiet whisper in my ear.

It seems that everyone has an opinion... including me. From what we should do, to when it should happen... blah blah...

And as the music for Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium plays, I think of my favorite line in the movie when Mr. M says to Mahoney "your life is an occasion rise to it".

I just think I was happy with a "situation" until everyone else had an opinion. I thought it was fine, my heart was content where I was. And then... everyone else started to change my perception. Sigh...

I was listening to God, and things are a little crazy, but loving life just the same.

One of my favorite verses in my head is Romans 12:2 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will

I actually wear it around my neck everyday (the highlighted part). It reminds me that I shouldn't be swayed by the world, and those in it, that I should be renewed by God's Word, His love, and His voice.

Today's verse of the day: When I said, "My foot is slipping," your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” (Psalm 94:18-19)

Funny. As I felt myself slipping from the way I felt contentment and was actually fighting in my own mind, I was reminded today, that I'm never too far from God, that His love surrounds me.

And in this post, I'm completely all over the place... but His love is right here.
