Do you ever feel like nothing is going right? Like anything that could possibly go wrong, will go wrong, and you can’t seem to catch a break? Fuel prices are up – along with the price of everything else. People are finding reasons to debate and divide with each other rather than seeking common ground. Not to mention, I got a new rock ding in my windshield! Those are just some examples of things we could fret about. OR… we could try spending a little more time seeking God’s will for our daily lives. He created us, so it makes sense that His will for us is what’s best. Then, there are those times when everything seems to be going perfectly. The skies are blue, the rent is paid, and the truck is running smoothly. How easily do we drift from God’s will when we are coasting along without a care in the world? In hard times, we should earnestly seek His will for us. And, likewise, in times of peace and prosperity, we should just as earnestly be seeking His will, or we may find ourselves slipping into our own lane and drifting from where we should be. Fortunately, God is always pursuing a relationship with us. That means, no matter how many steps we may take away from Him, it only takes one step of faith in the other direction, and God is right there to reconnect with us. If you have big plans for your life, I encourage you to seek God’s will in those plans. Our plans may not always succeed but rest assured… God’s will!
By Trevor Hardwick
The rain just keeps on pouring down,
The price of fuel is up.
It’s getting harder just to pour,
More coffee in my cup.
A tire is flat, the load is late,
And traffic’s standing still.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m even,
Following God’s will.
God’s will is that I wouldn’t,
Live my life in shame.
His will is that I wouldn’t quit,
If I’m losing at my game.
I wonder if He hears my pleas,
He tells me to be still.
And that is when I’ll find myself,
Returning to God’s will.
The sun is shining through the rain,
The roads are dry and clear.
Things that weighed me down before,
Are distant in my mirror.
When everything is going well,
And I have had my fill.
I wonder if I’m sailing smooth,
But drifting from God’s will.
God’s will ain’t always easy,
So, when things are going good.
I wonder if I’m in God’s will,
And doing as I should.
I know He has a plan for me,
He helps me crest each hill.
But shouldn’t there be challenges,
When walking in God’s will?
He offers me a strong sound mind,
He washes my sins clean.
He makes me rest in fields of green,
By peaceful quiet streams.
When things are good or things are bad,
His promises fulfill.
My plans may not warrant much,
But I can trust… God’s will!
