Last night we had dinner at our ministry house, we had a big crowd of friends show up to share in the festivities. It was our last big dinner together at this house.
I had to continue to remind myself throughout the evening that God has big plans, and He keeps His promises. But, still, I am sad that we have sold this home. It has been a shelter for many people, and we share a lot of fond memories of past dinners together and fun events.
By the time we arrived home last night, I was exhausted and bed was a welcome sight. My sleep was restless, as I kept waking up thinking about the evening with friends and asking God what the next step is for our ministry. What is the next step for walking a path that furthers His Kingdom, His way?
When I started reading this morning I turned to Proverbs 4, and in verse 11 and 12 it says this:
I have directed you in the way of wisdom. I have led you in upright paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be impeded, and if you run you will not stumble.
Right now, it feels like there are still some obstacles, but there are more promises as well. If I continue to walk in His wisdom and integrity, my path will be upright. When I step forward in faith, He will remove each obstacle as we go, and when I am running towards Him, I will not stumble.
Jesus, Say That Again to me. You are wisdom, You are my path, You will direct me!
