I love facebook! And I love the game Frontierville on facebook! My friend, Melinda, got me started on it. Her comment was " I love the missions. you do it & you're done" Well, I love it too! It gies you like 3 things to do to complete a mission & then you get your reward. I dont know how many times in my life I have said " I'm a woman on a mission" when I"m seriously trying to get something done.
I've heard many people say " If God would just tell me what to do I would do it". Well this weekend a light bulb went off for me! All these things Ive mentioned combined with one of my favorite verses from childhood finally congealed for me this weekend! The verse is Prov 3: 5 & 6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart & lean not into thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge him & he shall direct thy path." ( I hope that's accurate..I did it from memory)
Probablly since I"ve been playing Frontierville so much I see everything as if I was playing there game! lol I'm seeing weeds to pull in my yard that I hadnt noticed before & every tree I see I"m thinking I should chop it down! lol So, when this verse came to mind this weekend, it came in mission form:
Trust in the Lord with all thy heart
Lean not into thine own understanding
In all they ways acknowledge Him
(then the reward) And He shall direct they path.
That was SO cool to me! And it's really come to life for me. I hadnt realized how much I am carrying burdens around..like hundreds of things! Every time I start to fuss about something, now, I remind myself to Trust in the Lord. Everytime I think about how I'm going to "fix" something I now remember my mission of "lean not intho thine onw understanding" I"m working on " In all thy ways acknowledge him" Not sure exactly how to implement that into every minute of the day..but working on it.
Anyway, for me, this is very exciting. And so exciting to know that He is directing! WOO HOO!
