In life we all know far to well that there will be good days and bad days, When times are good we rejoice and try to have enjoy it, sometimes even with friends. However, when things go bad it seems like you don’t have a friend on this place we call Earth. And so I share with you a life experience that rocked my world that I perhaps will never forget. Why would I tell you? In our life a little rain must fall. However. in my case the entire Amazon River was dropped on me and I now will move onward.
Recently this writer attempted to buy a house in Burton Michigan. In fact it would have been a nice place for a single person to live in. AS days past I even began working on ideas for the two bedroom house. After all here is a single guy who likes such things as exotic cars. the NASA space program and of course Pirates of the Caribbean. So here I was about ready to make a major move in my life. Then it falls apart.
In the beginning I was informed not to talk to the seller, but the seller attends the same church and we are also friends. At this point a red flag goes up and then some interesting facts arose. The end result was truly not good but when you look back on the entire situation one could see the Holy Spirit at work doing the directing. It is sad to say the least but the very same God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob truly kept everything in its proper place. Was there hurt feeling? Indeed there were and on one certain day I thought I was listening to some sheep in wolfs clothing.
No matter how big or little a storm in our life may be there are these interesting things a Christian can do and they are as follows
Trust in the Lord “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. “ Proverbs 3:4-5
Be an overcomer. Use the tools God has laid out for you in HIS written Word. Even in the book of Revelation it talks about seven churches who needed to overcome something in their life.
Listen to the Lord’ “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 and then Psalm 1:1-2 says “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
Remember this one simple thing: in everyone’s life a little rain must fall, What you do during that time can either make you or brake you. If you listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit HE will direct your path for HE teaches and guides us in all things. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. “John 14:26
AS you walk and talk with HIM make sure you spend time listening to Him. Why? because HE will direct your path regardless how foolish others may think or believe it may be. In otherwords, dear reader, “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. “ 1st Timothy 6:12 and when its is nearly done you too will be able to utter these words, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:” 2nd Timothy 4:7
In closing. dear Christian. remember this: YOU are a member of the body of Christ. YOU have friends and a family all because you are of the household of faith. If you are having troubles, et with someone who can help.
|Proverbs 15:23“A person finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!”
