"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:
and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand."
~ Psalm 37:23, 24 ~
While going through the difficult trials of moving into a new home
my husband and I had days where our hearts would be discouraged
and we would wonder if we were ever going to get everything accomplished.
The Lord used a small devotional from A.W. Tozer to greatly bless and encourage us
and to this day I still think upon the words that Tozer wrote
and I thought I would share them with you.
"To the child of God, there is no such thing as accident.
He travels an appointed way.
The path he treads was chosen for him when as yet he was not,
when as yet he had existence only in the mind of God.
Accidents may indeed appear to befall him and misfortune stalk his way;
but these evils will be so in appearance only and will seem evil only because
we cannot read the script of God's hidden providence
and so cannot discover the ends at which He aims...
The man of true faith may live in the absolute assurance
that his steps are ordered by the Lord.
For him, misfortune is outside the bounds of possibility.
He is not a waif of the wide world, a foundling of time and space,
but a saint of the Lord and the darling of His particular care."
~ A.W. Tozer - Tozer on Christian Leadership ~
"A man's heart deviseth his way:
but the LORD directeth his steps."
~ Proverbs 16:9 ~
"O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself:
it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps."
~ Jeremiah 10:23 ~
I hope this encourages you as much as it encouraged my husband and me :)
Have a blessed Lord's Day!
News Flash -
WE HAVE MOVED INTO OUR HOME!!
We moved in on Thursday evening - praise the Lord!
I have been having Internet issues in the new home

I am at my mother-in-laws right now writing this :)
Thank you, dear friends, for your patience with my absence in blogging during the moving process;
all of you are so wonderful and dear to me!
