When God brings the blank space, see that you do not fill it in, but wait.
The blank space may come in order to teach you what sanctification means,
or it may come after sanctification to teach you what service means.
Never run before God’s guidance.
If there is the slightest doubt – don’t.
My Utmost For His Highest
Ten years ago God took us to a quiet country road in Missouri.
We remodeled an Amish farmhouse and enjoyed seven years of country living.
We then returned to Delaware, living with family while building a home.
Covid lockdowns, supply chain problems, lost paperwork, wrong tax ID numbers, and a host of other issues have made this a long drawn out process but we are nearing completion after almost three years.
Todays devotional reading is especially meaningful to me.
There are times when you cannot understand
why you cannot do what you want to do.
Lord, three years ago I underlined those words in my morning devotional reading. We were living in Missouri and my husband had decided (with no consultation or discussion) to sell the farm and return to Delaware. You know me, Lord. You created me. I don’t like sudden decisions. I prefer to ponder the matter under consideration. I need to pray and seek Your will. So I was undone! After much anxiety, and many “WHY”s,” You brought me through. You showed me it was Your plan.
