5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
I am so thankful for the times in my life when God has picked me up and made me point in another direction. If not for Him, I would be walking the same path and going the same way.
Many times He moves us from where we are~ from what we are in the middle of... to a different walk. While obeying, we look back at what we are leaving and question what God is doing in our lives. He sometimes gently prods us to keep walking.. and sometimes it's not ever for us to know. Many times though, I find that I can look back on things and blatantly see all that He has protected me from~ or taken me from. It's then, that I'm so thankful that He sees the ultimate big picture of things. Sometimes when we are right in the middle of something, we just cannot see things for what they are. And, I truly believe, that God will move us from jobs, churches, friendships etc... before things happen~ so that we will not be involved in happenings/circumstances in those surroundings. Ah, He is soooo good.
