“Guidance”

Scripture reference;

“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

 

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13 KJV

 

I have a precious friend. Her name is Faith. She is old enough to be my mother. We first met in 1999. At that time my son was eleven years old, my daughter was five and I was 32.

She has been my “Titus Woman”*.

It all started at a ladies luncheon in the spring of that year. She and an elderly lady needed a ride home. We dropped the other lady off at her own home in town. and then continued on to Faith’s home which was about a 20 minute drive from there.

It has been my experience that when it comes to the Family of God, that genuine “assembling”…(see John 4:19-26) is usually not contrived, but rather “foreordained”.

When our heart is ready He admonishes us that there is something He requires, and then He provides the means.

Faith was confident of that truth when we met, but  many years passed before I was fully persuaded.

Yesterday we assembled again. She read some quotes of Frances J. Roberts. I had never heard of her. They were just wonderful! Earlier today I couldn’t wait to look her up online. I found the following quote. I hope it blesses you.

 

“His desire to bless you goes infinitely beyond your own personal desire to secure His blessing. There is always peace in His presence. Do not disturb this by anxiety to know what is in store for tomorrow. Out of the very tranquility of worship will be born the guidance you need.”

Older women similarly are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor addicted to much wine, teaching what is right and good, so that they may encourage the young women to tenderly love their husbands and their children, to be sensible, pure, makers of a home [where God is honored], good-natured, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored. Titus 2:3 AMP

How beautiful it…

“9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Note to self…

My life is pretty easy these days, but I don’t have a lot of energy/motivation for much beyond what is required of me.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy. I just have these spells where life needs to be really simple and filled with lots of quiet time to just putter around……or not. 🙂 ❤

Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.

Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.” Psalm 131
