the daily walk

I just love it when God blesses you while you're walking your daily path. It just let's you know you're in the right place and His right timing. It shows He's interested in what we're doing in our daily lives.

Yesterday afternoon, I was at my friend Debra's Fall Open House at Inspirational Home, taking photos for my blog when someone said "hello" to me. I didn't think I had met her, so I walked over and asked if we'd met before. She at first from a distance thought I was the other Debra who owned the store, but when we started talking she realized that I wasn't. She is new to our town, from California, and didn't know many people. I mentioned that I had a blog and she stopped me saying, that she read my blog and knew who I was. She continued telling me that she'd been reading this blog also, and that God had put me on her heart to pray for. Talk about a God moment! What a blessing! We chatted for quite awhile, exchanged cards with phone numbers and email, then we had to have a hug, because it was so evident that this had been a God "setup"!



I used to be so intense when it came to seeking God's will; wanting to know what lies ahead, how to plan, having the future laid out...know what I mean? This last several years I've just asked God to not let me make mistakes in His plan for my life and to make sure I'm doing and being in the place I need to be.

How wonderful to have confirmation in the little things, knowing that each day if I follow God, seeking Him, He makes sure I'm on the path...you just never know who'll you'll meet!

love in Jesus,

  3. Hi Debra,
    How exciting that was!
    Yes, it is great to have confirmation that we are where God wants us to be. I remember when I was young, and my family had traveled to Sydney for a vacation. I was feeling a bit guilty that we were spending so much money. For my morning prayer I asked God where He wanted me to go and He said to smell the flowers. My mom and I visited the botanical garden and we were just in time for a free tour. There weren't many flowers that day maybe because of the season, but the guide pointed out to me a particular specie and said, "Smell the flowers". As I bent down, it was as if God was saying , yes, you are exactly where I want you to be. Nice to remember that memory- it's been buried for some time, but your post made me remember it.
    Have been praying for you every day as I promised! God bless you! Patsy from

  4. I needed to hear this. We have been struggling with our business and there have been some obstacles. This business provdies health insurance for us (me in particular) and we hoped would allow me to stay at home with my kids. We have been praying for it so much that we lost sight of what we should be praying for. We should pray that we dont mess up God's plan. Such great words and I needed to hear this. Thank you!
