365

~The Lord says: I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye. (Psalms 32:8-9) Easier said than done right? Accepting the fact that you do not always know the best route to take in life never is. But if we relax, read the instructions (scripture) and let go of the steering wheel of life, we can reach greater potential in our lives.
For example, while Jessica was in critical condition nearing a month ago, all I wanted to do was choke a doctor into making her better. To call it a day-to-day thing would be very wishful thinking. In fact it was more of a hour-to-hour scenario. Hundreds of people were praying and keeping her in their thoughts. It took me getting to my personal breaking point to finally accept the fact that there was nothing I could do. I was powerless. As a control freak, this destroyed every ounce of personal pride I had. But it was in that same enlightening moment that God decided to tell me to shut up, sit down, and thankfully watch him work. We quite literally went from a day where we were told she may need an emergency life or death colon surgery to remove the entire organ, to within two days being out of the ICU entirely and on our way to recovery. So the next time you are in a bind this way, just keep in mind and hold tight to the fact that it is not your job to fix the problem, just to be prayerful and faithful while observing the Master physician at work. My church (SCC) recently had a terrible tragic loss, from a scenario very similar to Jessica’s. In times like these it is all but impossible to see the logic and master plan. At the same time, it is very comforting to know that there is still a plan and although we do not understand it, it is very real. The promise of a reunion one day at the very least can be comforting through all the pain.

~Fact: “Do not be afraid” is written in the Bible 365 times.
~Fact: There are 365 days in a typical year.
Coincidence?
