The day started great–waking up in McCall, Idaho. As I got the coffee made and the dishwasher emptied while the coffee brewed I went to start my devotions to find I’d left my devotional, Bible and journal at home. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before. So I started my devotions for the first time using my phone. I do have Bible Hub on it as an app. The odd thing to me is that I brought my laptop knowing I’d want to use it for posting the blog rather than using my phone. I guess its one more sign of aging!
As I started James this morning (by the way, I love this little book) I found myself engrossed by James 1:5&6. It reads, “If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” I’ve been needing wisdom in a particular area and yesterday asked The Holy Spirit to provide it as He drove the day. It didn’t come as I expected so I began to doubt. Reading these verses this morning was just what I needed. I do believe with all my soul, mind and spirit that God is in control. I needed this reminder so that I trust The Holy Spirit’s timing and setting.
Today will be a good day. I’m going to trust God and believe!
