At the end of February, I had the opportunity to visit Tuskegee, Alabama, and research the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II archives, at both Tuskegee University, and the National Park Service.
During the trip, there were bumps…Shields Up!
There were blips…The Battle is the LORD’s.
And there was the incredible gift of not just a piece of pie, but the entire bakery…More Pie, Please.
Though there were detours to my plans and unexpected events, the thing that remained constant – besides the eggs and sausage at the hotel breakfast – is the fact God is, and always will be, in control. Amen?
God is sovereign. He goes before us and levels mountains and fills in valleys to make our paths smooth. None can stand against our LORD. His grace is all sufficient.
The things we may view as aggravations and annoyances, God can use to show us his power. To prove, once again, he is working in our lives. We just need to keep looking for his hand at work, and praise him. Not just when he shows up and shows out, but when he speaks in quiet ways, as well.
Even when the lessons God is teaching us may be hard, disrupt our plans, or cause us discomfort, I’m discovering we need to look at them as lessons to be learned. Which hopefully, we will allow to draw us closer to Jesus.
What are your thoughts on the subject?
Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. May he be given glory forever and ever through endless ages because of his master plan of salvation for the Church through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 3:20-21 (TLB)
I wish you well.
