Smiles. Have you ever been in a hurry to get to a location and everything on your way that day and at that time, just seems to be slowing you down. And just all against you from getting there early? 💭
I was at this point, on a particular Friday morning. I was excited I was going to get to work early and in time. I even took a motorbike as against a Tricycle, hence I paid higher. I did this in a bid to be able to get to the next bus stop earlier. As I walked along the bus stop, I saw a couple of buses going along the destination I was heading.
Some called out to me. One in particular even stopped and it was almost filled up. So it seemed like a good decision because it won’t have to be making a lot of stops. But he turned me off by calling a higher price, so I walked away and entered another which wasn’t filled up at that time. The previous bus left us and moved on, while we were still at that bus stop. Because the conductor was waiting for other passengers going in the same direction.
To cut the long story short. We passed the other bus that had left some minutes before ours. As his route had a long line of hectic traffic while ours was free as it was on the express lane.
I smiled. You know why? I didn’t expect it. I so didn’t even know that there will be traffic on that lane considering the road was free up until that point. So yeah, I got to work early. 🤩🙌🏼
Bringing this home. What is that decision that seem like a bad choice because it isn’t checking all your boxes currently? Or maybe it feels like it’s a bad one just because your expectation for an earlier time to achieve it isn’t forthcoming or looking like it, just yet?
Look beyond the other “moves” or seemingly great or speedy decisions, and trust that Abba will bring His promises over your life to pass.
One thing that I want you to be sure of in this decision making journey is that “am I sure that this is the step He is leading me to take?”
Once you are sure He is the one leading you to take that step. Be rest assured that His word is synonymous to Him. His word is God and God is the Word. (John 1:1)
His admonition to you and I today and always is that we should know that He will get us to our final destination in peace and in His right timing and with His right and graceful processes!
“He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11 AMP
You are not alone in that journey and ABBA’s got you. 💯❤️
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you [who are willing to learn] with My eye upon you.”
Psalms 32:8 AMP
His promises still stands, will you let Him guide you through it?
May His words light up on our inside. (Amen)🙏🏻
