Word of the Day... February 27, 2013

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Many of us don’t need a reminder that the Christian life isn’t sunshine and lollipops all the time.  The Lord never promised us that life would be easy for us.  He did promise that He would never leave us.  He will help us through the mangle of our life if we only allow Him to.  He is the Potter and we are the clay.  All we have to do is listen to His commands and obey them as He shapes us into the image of His Son.

He gives us this wonderful gift called love and patience. He actually wants us to bring all of our feelings, fears, and anxiety to Him.  He will show us how to build a great shield of faith using His Word that will extinguish those flaming arrows, and affirm our trust in Him no matter how we “feel”.  Each and each time we stand behind the shield of His Word, we will grow stronger and more mature as a Christian and our feelings will eventually fall into line with our faith.

Yes His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways, but when we seek His face we will find everything that we have ever longed for and He will fill the yearning in our hearts!!  I hope you all have a Simply Heavenly Wednesday!!!


It's so annoying to think thoughts you know are ridiculous, but so easy to get back on track w/just a little focus time. :) This was a nice post.

Amen that is so true Rosey!!! Thank you so much for your kindness!!! I hope that you have a Simply Heavenly day!:):)
