Let God Guide the Way

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Believe it or not, I turned on the a/c late yesterday evening. It was so warm in the afternoon, I closed the southern kitchen window because too much heat was coming in! This is in the middle of November! Today is slightly cloudy, but we have had sunshine already, and it is still warm. I took one blanket off the bed yesterday and will put it back on if we get a cold front anytime soon, but meanwhile it is summer again!

I had to make a trip to Publix yesterday, because I was low on a lot of groceries. I had my list all made out and followed it closely, except I discovered a lot of buy one, get one free deals that I had not counted on, so I had to take advantage of those, too! The only thing I forgot was milk which I am almost out of. Oh, well, I will get some today. The bakery had pumpkin muffins, so, of course, I had to pick a four pack up, two of which are already gone!

After doing laundry, I swept up the porch again, and as I was sweeping, more acorns were falling, along with the autumn leaves...hmmm, reminds me of a song. It was a good productive day and God is good!

From the Little book of Devotions, Knowing God:

The true children of God are those who let God's Spirit lead them.
Romans 8:14 NCV

The Bible promises that God will guide you if you let Him.
Your job is to let Him. But sometimes, you will be tempted to do otherwise.
 Sometimes, you'll be tempted to go along with the crowd; other times, you'll
be tempted to do things your way, not God's way. When you feel these temptations, resist them.

God has promised that when you ask for His help, He will not withhold it. So ask.
 Ask Him to meet the needs of your day.
Ask him to lead you, to protect you, and to correct you.  And trust the answers He gives.

God stands at the door and waits. When you knock, He opens.
When you ask, He answers. Your task, of course, is to seek His guidance
prayerfully, confidently, and often.

                                                                     -Great Thoughts-

We have ample evidence that the Lord is able to guide. The 
promises cover every imaginable situation. All we need to do 
is to take the hand he stretches out.

                                                                    -Today's Prayer-

Dear Lord, thank You for Your constant presence and Your constant love. 
I draw near to You this day with the confidence that You are ready to
guide me . Help me walk closely with You, Father, and help me share Your
Good News with all who cross my path.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs
