my daughter, jana, gave
the Innocent Man
the devotional "Jesus Calling" for christmas.
my son-in-law, aaron, took the picture of my six kids
and gave that as a gift.
i gave him the cross that says
these items were on the dresser of his room
and had to be packed up with his other belongings
before i flew home.
i just had to see what the author
had to say january 20th,
the day the innocent man didn't go home,
but went off in handcuffs.
APPROACH THIS DAY WITH AWARENESS OF
WHO IS BOSS.
As you make plans for the day,
remember that is it I who orchestarate the events of your life.
On days when things go smoothly,
according to your plans,
you may be unaware of My sovereign Presence.
On days when your plans are thwarted,
be on the lookout for Me!
I may be doing something important in your life,
something quite different from what you expected.
It is essential at such times to stay in communication with Me,
accepting My way as better than yours.
Don't try to figure out what is happening.
Simply trust Me and thank Me in advance
for the good that will come out of it all.
I know the plans I have for you,
and they are good.
have your plans recently been thwarted?
are you trying to figure out what's happening in your life?
can you surrender your plans,
your ways and your thoughts?
when my heart is troubled about my circumstances,
i encourage myself by remembering the One
who orchestrated those circumstances,
is the One who loved me enough to die for me.
over and over i say
"God is either 100% sovereign,
or He isn't sovereign at all.
God is sovereign,
