Yesterday, in my Newsfeeds on Facebook, I saw this post from K-Love Radio about shredding the worst moments of 2011. You know, this morning I asked God to show me the things that happened this year that I perceived as "bad" and to reveal to me during this last week of December, how each of these occurring circumstances had a counter blessing by Him, and will work together ultimately, in His good and perfect will for my life.
I added a comment: I want to forget the day I got rear ended and my car was totaled, The moment while volunteering at my Daughter's School Field Day that I hurdled my way to a torn hip, AND the day my boss told me that we were no longer professionally compatible- so bye bye. YEAH. ALL THAT! Rough year!
Well today Amanda shredded all of those comments
The last week of December is the time I usually start looking back on all the hopes, dreams and goals I had the prior year and contemplate the upcoming year with all of it's potential.
Which leads me to the next quote that caught my eye, sent through those fabulous feeds of love:
"My life may not be going the way I planned it, but it's going exactly the way God planned it."
Have any moments you would like to shred?
Know this, we can shred them and still know and trust the one who sifts every dreadfully, shred - worthy moment through His Almighty hands.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
