Today’s journey has me right smack in the middle of yesterday’s message. I thought I was on track with a couple that our pastor and I were meeting with next week. Come to find out, I was way off base with the intent of the one. I had translated meaning given to me to be restoration of a marriage. All the one had in mind was restoration of a position their spouse had. They had no intent of restoring their marriage. I had misled the one in my communicating with them. I’ve given my apology but I somehow wish I’d questioned better the original intent without assuming it.
I know God uses all things to His honor and glory when we surrender to Him, right now I just want to surrender and say I’m stepping out of this quagmire. However, God has a purpose in this for me–question more thoroughly before stepping in from assumption only.
Today is a day to be home and tie up all the loose ends as Winter is coming. The Serenity Prayer tells us to take “one day at a time, one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace”. I pray this present hardship will bring eventual peace for the one connected to this moment.
