My Ways Are NOT Your Ways

2011 is a new year and a new opportunity to follow Jesus. There is a slight hitch to my plan, I like to be in control!

I want to be in control and make the decisions about

What I eat
What I do
What I wear
When I sleep
When I wake up
When I exercise
Who I spend time with
How I spend my money
Where I work

Unfortunately my plans are not always God's plans! Only God knows the paths that I should take and which ones will be the most profitable for the kingdom of Christ.

So this year here I have a new plan: Ask!

Deuteronomy 31:18 says,

"The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you." .

1. He is the one that goes before us, He knows the way.  He is the way.  Asking Him the direction I should go seems like a smart decision.

I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
John 13:15

  2. I will try and follow in his footsteps.  When I don't know what to do I will  seek to do as Jesus did. 

I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly. John 10:10

3. Last when I don't understand, I will remember that He loves me and that I can trust His heart.

I am reminded of the lyrics from a song "Trust His Heart"

                  God is too wise to be mistaken

God is too good to be unkind

So when you don't understand

When you don't see His plan

When you can't trace His hand

Trust His heart
In 2011 I will try and Follow His lead, Ask His Direction and Trust His heart!
Father, I give 2011 to you and I give back to you the decisions and control of my life. lead me gentle shepherd. Love your sheep, Jann
