Leading Me - TT#2

Updated: Sep 2, 2019



Throwback Thursday #2 - June 2019

{Written Thursday, June 24, 2010}


I have been going through a heavy season with my heart lately.


God seems to be leading me through the rivers called grief, worry, uncertainty, and fear. Notice I said leading me THROUGH, and not leading me to. That is because He is always right beside us... holding our hand... leading us through the journey of our lives. He does not take us to the brink... or the struggle... and leave us there. He is with us every step of the way and He is leading us out to the other side. Sometimes the crossing is long.  But we are not left in the Jordan to be carried downstream. No! He leads us across to the other side. He teaches us along the way.


We learn how to cross. We learn how to fix our eyes on Him. And then we relearn it… and relearn it... and relearn it, again. That is just the way we are... we are forgetful and fragile. But our Heavenly Father remembers this and He is ever mindful of our condition.  He never grows weary of us... instead He glories in sustaining us. 

"He {God} never grows weary of us... instead He glories in sustaining us."

So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: "Go through the camp and tell the people, 'Get your provisions ready.  Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own."  ~ Joshua 1:10-11 ~


In the midst of my rivers of fear and uncertainty I sometimes stand idle, almost paralyzed... feeling beyond comfort.  And, then other times I am able to notice the Gentle Whisper calling me to open the pages of God's great promises.  And as I do, the peace softly rolls in... like a gentle fog, replacing the scorching desert winds that had left me lost.  It is not that I have a marvelous epiphany about my situation or the perfect answer to my current problems, but rather just what happens to my soul as I lean in to hear the voice of my Father... His black ink on slivers of thin, white paper. His quietness and rest settle into my heart... assurance of the love and beauty and mercy of God... beyond measure and comprehension... as He kindly and gently leads me through my Jordan.
