2009 One Voice is Mine

From all different angles the voices of this world, Christian and non, have filled my head with advice, suggestions, maybe this would help one liners, and unasked for directions. No one meant any harm but in the midst of it all, my heart silently was crying out to the Lord saying which way? How do I know? What am I suppose to do?

Then in the sweetest of moments, unexpected and pure, with the heaviest of heart, I opened my Bible right to this verse - This is what the Lord says, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel - "I am the LORD your God who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go." Isaiah 48:17

Bottom line - His voice is the only one I want to hear in 2009. He can teach me what is best for me because He knows me. He is the Divine Teacher. He can direct my paths because He knows the direction I am to head in.

I am thrilled to start the year off with such a solid Word from the Lord. It brings me peace like nothing else and stills the chaos inside my head. I am counting on Him and thankfully, He is trustworthy.

My friend Robin,
Yes, He is worthy of all of our praise. I read this in The Shack by William P. Young and thought I would share with you. "A birds not defined by being grounded but by his ability to fly. Remember this, humans are not defined by their limitations,but by the intentions that I have for them; not by what they seem to be, but by everything it means to be created in my image." Lets praise Him together and remember each other in prayer. Let our focus be on His Word and our minds be prayfully focused on his goodness and there is nothing impossible with God.

LOVE YA---------------Merla
