I was talking to a friend last night about how at times I think that people see me as a little looney..okay maybe REALLY looney haha! I am constantly smiling, constantly just in awe of what God is doing in my life..I mean, how can you not smile at that (=? Psalm 119:35 says "Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found." SO simple yet profound. Walking hand in hand along this path with the Lord, I am walking in His commands..and so often we try to do things on our own, what WE think is good for us. But do we really even know what is good for us? I think that we definitely have discernment from what is right and wrong, but in the plan making for our lives- I've learned to leave it up to the 'Big Man.' How can I think that I know better than the one who intricately designed and created me, what is best for my life? So in that, because He knows us so well, what He has in store for our lives ultimately is going to make us the happiest..People search forever for happiness and yet hardly ever find it. It's as simple as laying your own plans down before the Lord and wanting His will. The word says: "Happy are those who fear the Lord. Yes, happy are those who delight in doing what He commands." We delight in doing what He commands, because what He commands us to do ultimately brings us happiness. Haha ahhhh He loves us so much! It's a win/win situation, and really it seems too simple but that's the way He works!
I love how 1 Peter 1:8 states; "Though you do not see Him, you trust Him; and even now you are happy with a glorious, inexpressible joy." Trust that what He has planned is better than you could ever imagine for yourself..He wants you to be the happiest possible in the journey of life- that's what makes Him happy.
Breathing in His beauty with every breath (=,
