Thankful Thursday: Consistency!
James 1:5-8 (NASB) "But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double -minded man, unstable in all his ways."
I am not sure about the rest of you.... But I have always struggled with remaining consistent in my walk. At times I would know for certain I was on task and right where the Lord wanted me doing his perfect will, while at others times felt totally in my flesh doing what pleased ME.
Today I'm thankful for just being able to stand. To stand on his word. To trust in his word and to know that as long as I'm running the race to please and serve him that he will be there with me. I have reached a place in my life that I do not yet have direction as far as if I will ever remarry or if I will remain single and at one time that filled every vacancy in my mind. It was a huge fear that I would end up all alone! That woman was a double-minded woman. Tossed to and fro running from one solution to another.
I'm thankful this Thursday that I still don't know the answer to that question but I have amazing peace in just resting in the Lord! I felt a huge tug at just taking a few steps back and waiting and trusting. So this is what I have done!
I HAVE FAITH THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL AND BEING THE LIGHT TO MY PATH, JUST AS HE HAS PROMISED!
