As it happened a remembrance came to the forefront of thinking regarding a task I had desired to do a few days earlier, but had forgotten about before getting to it. On a whim I took off to do it before forgetting again. And in that task was found an answer and affirmation of things that had been on my heart for the last few weeks.
In the midst of the mess of said task was found an old Daily Bread Devotion page -from 2015- which I had obviously meant to keep with my journals from the note written on it. How it found its way to where it was is a mystery, however I do believe my Lord knew right where it had landed. And in His goodness and grace He nudged my spirit with His that morning prompting me forward with said task knowing full well what I would find. Some may call it happenstance or coincidence. But I recognized the gentle touch of the Lord’s Spirit, as I read the words on the page…
Do not “become too attached to ‘your’ plans that ‘you’ may resist God’s direction or His timing.”
“We have no right to judge where we should be put, or to have preconceived notions as to what God is fitting us for.” said Chambers. “God engineers everything. Wherever He puts us, our one great aim is to pour out a whole-hearted devotion to Him in that particular work.”
…and He comforted me in His peace of assurance with a spiritual hug that morning.
“I am with you daughter, I hear your prayer, your calling out. I am directing your path as promised, just keep resting in me daily.”
And my continued prayer is: “Lord, may I love and serve you with all my heart where You have placed me TODAY.”
