My yesterday did not go as planned. I did not get done anything I wanted to do. My finances are going to unlikely places, just as in this devotion I wrote weeks ago. In reflection, almost any day can be a journey to unlikely places. What a great way to be reminded of Jesus's birth in that every time things do not go as planned, I can be reminded of Jesus's journey to an unlikely place.
Above is a margin strip I made with the verse in the devotional.
To get an advance copy of all the devotions and to read more about our challenge for you, see this post.
I am not seeing much activity, not even comments of thanks, with these devotions for all the work we've put into them. One minute I am praying that that God change my attitude in looking for people to use it and just be blessed that we are able to share and that God can do so much more than we can imagine. I get this failure thing in my head and I must see me as God sees me instead. I then switch and pray that God allow me to see what others do as confirmation believing that He will give what we ask and it is okay to ask! I flip flop back and forth in my prayers.
Please pray with me. Lord, I desire life. I ask You to bring to my mind my transgressions and thank You for Your forgiveness. I praise You for coming to an unlikely places such as a manger. What a great and excellent thing for you to come to earth born as a baby to live a life that ended in our salvation! Help me from getting stuck in my own plans and desires and to see Your rerouting as good and perfect. In your name I pray. Amen.
