I love to people watch, looking around and wondering people's stories. I have seen many who look like if they took one more step, it would be their last. There was an older gentlemen who I had seen on the way to my past place of employment. He was so crippled up and I wondered how he could take one more step. I really began to think what happened to him along His life's journey.
I wonder what causes people to get where they are. I had a wonderful childhood. It had it's disfuntion as all families have, but overall the lessons learned, the disicpline was correct and morals were taught. I remember the best times and the not so good times. Bottom line I know I was taught to be a person with passion and to live my life according to God's Word.
Did I have some rough patches, yes indeed. I was a fearful child which followed me into adulthood. I had high expectations with friends and family. People would come and go out of my life. Some touched my life to the very core and when they moved on and a piece of my heart broke. I would have been their friend for life. But life is not like that, is it?
Mom used to say that if you could count the number of faithful friends on one hand you've been blessed.
We can look around and try to make friendships happen, but people come in and go out of our lives. Whether just for a season, through a disagreement or just moved on. There is a saying, "The Heart Grows Fonder"...not true...once in a while I have someone in my past come to mind and I wonder where they are, how their life has turned out.
We all scatter to and throw....Our journey's should never be limited and we get too comfortable where we are sometimes. When we get to comfortable God will send us somewhere else. Reminds me of the Israelites in the wildreness. What was supposed to be 40 days turned into 40 years. I really believe that we just don't learn where we are at, or we don't hear God's call to move.
I learned this very hard lesson and it isn't like God didn't warn me. I worked at a job 15 years and left because of health reasons and then God called me back...but he told me He would only use me for a short time. I loved being there...it was comfortable. Towards the end, I was so unhappy and complained just like the Isralites did in the wilderness. It didn't end pretty!! I was offended, hurt and angry. I held on to that for over a yr. I forgot why I was sent, why God needed me to be there. The last day I was there a worker brought in a beautiful parrot and left it with me. I knew that I was being let go that day, and yet God placed this bird in front of me. I heard God say, "you are like a caged bird and I am freeing you today." I still walked away with a downcast face. I look back and see what I didn't learn and what I did learn.
A year later I was working for a friend at her store and she knew it was too hard for me to stand, so she suggested I try out her other business, reluctent I went to work in a Auto Repair shop. I was treated like a queen!! God was healing me in a place I never expected to be. I was thanked everyday for my work. I had no idea what I was doing, but I loved going to this job. I laughed so much and my boss was the best boss I have ever had, so kind, giving and loyal. We still get together and I get chocked up when I go to the shop or out for the day with family. What I thought was a slap in the face, God blessed me with an awesome job. I still want to be there, but God only needed me there for a little over a year. I was restored and knew God used that job to build me back up and show me that His ways are not always what we want.
So I look around and see people who I hopefully have touched and made a difference and I know that this life is a journey of lessons. Lessons that will either break us or make us.
I have a couple of songs I want to share with you....It was around this time that God led me to hear these songs.

The Road Not Taken
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 10
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back. 15
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. Robert Frost

While thus occupied, as I journeyed to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, at midday, O king, along the road I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around me and those who journeyed with me. And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. Acts 26:12-16 NKJV
Saul, Saul—God knows your name (first, last, and middle). He knows your heart, knows your choices, and knows your needs. He will address you personally and directly. He won’t confuse you with someone else or give you the wrong message.
Why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads (the sting of resisting My will).—Often, when God speaks, He begins with a question. He wants you to consider your ways, your attitudes, and your choices. When He speaks He clears things up immediately. He states things as they truly are in His sight.
So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.’—God wants you to be assured that He fully identifies Himself with you because you are His. When you are persecuted for righteousness sake, He is persecuted. He walks with you through every trial and comforts you in every sorrow. When anyone touches God’s people they touch the apple of God’s eye.
But rise and stand on your feet;— There is time to be down on your knees before God and there is a time to rise, stand upon your feet, and respond to His call. God has something He wants you to do, somewhere He wants you to go, and someone He wants you to reach.
I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.— When God appears to you or speaks to you, He does it for a specific purpose. God’s call to you means God’s enabling for you. He will not call you to do anything that will separate you from His presence, His power, or His peace. And remember, your step of obedience to God’s call and purpose is only the beginning. He has so much more ahead—so much more to show you, and so much more that He will do through you as you say “yes” to what He asks.
Years later, after Saul heard God call his name, it is a blessing to hear Saul’s (now Paul’s) testimony before King Agrippa, “I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision.” May this be the testimony of each of us as we respond to the call of God upon our lives.

The just shall live by his faith. —Habakkuk 2:4, KJV
Maybe we prayed every day during the week and yet have not experienced God's blessing or seen Him answer prayer. What then? "It is required in stewards [that is, those who have been given a trust], that a man [or woman] be found faithful" (1 Cor. 4:2, KJV). Anybody can be faithful when prayer is being answered, when the wind is at one's back, and everything is going well. But what is one to do when God suddenly hides His face? Until you have experienced the hiding of His face and come out on the other side, you won't really come to know God as a friend.
This was Habakkuk's experience. Habakkuk 2:4 is a famous verse that is quoted three times in the New Testament.
There is an intentional ambiguity here. The faithfulness can be God's faithfulness to us or our faithfulness to God: the verse can be read either way, and it means both. But it can equally describe the faithfulness of the individual himself, who doesn't give up hope. The person who trusts God and lives by His promise to bless is declared righteous in the sight of God. It applies to the future—to the fact that God will accept us in heaven—but it also applies to the present. God is saying that we are declared righteous now.
If we could only see this day, it would set us afire. If, in the moment when we don't see answered prayer, we could just look up to heaven and say, "God, I love You anyway," God would declare us righteous just because our faith pleases Him. That kind of faith has a cleansing result. We feel clean. We don't understand why God lets things happen, but we trust Him anyway.
