Perfect timing...

There is something that God is always faithful to do, and yet, for lack of a better word, it always surprises me slightly. It really shouldn't, but I admit, I always feel pleasantly surprised and definitely more at peace.

I've talked with someone recently about decisions they are personally facing, and gave the following advice: "Pray, pray, pray, pray, pray! God seldom uses neon signs in the sky to point the way, but instead, speaks in that still small voice. Pray, and He'll guide you." That's the shortened version of my advice to them. :) J and I have been talking a little about a decision we are facing ourselves and know that we need God's direction for this decision.... Which way do we step? Left? Right? Or should we just stand still for the moment? We talked more in depth about it today and discussed how we both really need to just seek God's face in the matter and trust Him to guide us. When we arrived home this afternoon, I sat down at the computer, opened our mail and found these verses in our inbox. Hmm......

He is Our Guide

For this God is our God for ever and ever;
He will be our guide even to the end.

Psalm 48:14 NIV


And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying,
"This is the way, walk ye in it,
when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left. "

Isaiah 30:21 KJV


I will lead the blind by a way they do not know,
In paths they do not know I will guide them.

I will make darkness into light before them
And rugged places into plains.
These are the things I will do,
And I will not leave them undone.

Isaiah 42:16 NASB

That last verse speaks of God not leaving us "undone" and "undone" is absolutely how I have felt lately!! It never ceases to amaze me how God knows my exact feelings and thoughts and will speak directly to my soul. Yes, it was "merely" confirmation to seek His face and when I seek His face, He will guide me... There was no specific "direction" found in those verses, but it was that gentle reminder and affirmation of the exact thing that J and I had finished talking about no more than half an hour earlier. I love it!!

Thanks, God.
