July 28, 2009

We just got home from vacation two days ago, and let me tell you it was much needed indeed. We went with Ash, Forrest, Jon, and Alisha, and I think this was the most fun I have had on vacation in a long time. We laughed, shared, read side-by-side, and enjoyed some domino's this past week. It was so peaceful and fun filled. I love being friends with them!
Let me share a little of my devotion that I had this morning. It comes from My Utmost For His Highest. Today talks about God's purpose or mine. It discusses how God's plans for us are not our dreams of success. I tend to think that if I follow what God is telling me to do than I will be successful, which his purpose may be exactly the opposite. "What we see as only the process of reaching a particular end, God sees as the goal itself."

These few sentences chimed my heart this morning... "What he desires for me is that I see 'Him walking on the sea' with no shore, no success, nor goal in sight, but simply having the absolute certainty that everything is all right because I see 'Him walking on the sea'. It is the process, not the outcome, that is glorifying to God."
