It’s the first step in the path of my day and I see nowhere to put my foot except on the dark water… God is amazing; I see only what I need to see. “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)
Since God intends to make you like Jesus, he will take you through the same experiences Jesus went through. (Warren, R., 2013, p.173)
- To deal with suffering and problems in life as Jesus did remember God has a plan and that it is good. “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
- To deal with suffering as Jesus did, we must rejoice and give thanks in the midst of it. “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
- To deal with suffering as Jesus did, refuse to give up. “Let the process go on until your endurance is fully developed, and you will find that you have become men of mature character… with no weak spots.” (James 1:3-4)
“You need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion.” (Hebrews 10:36)

Jesus said, “People need more than bread for their life; they must feed on every word of God.” Matthew 4:4
Now I am turning you over to God, our marvelous God whose gracious Word can make you into what he wants you to be and give you everything you could possibly need in this community of holy friends. Acts 20:32
“What is the next move for me God?” is the question I have today. What is my next move to be what God wants me to be and where should I be? As I read the “Daily Inspiration for The Purpose Driven Life” today I reflect on the things that have brought me to this point in my life. Even though I feel young my birthday number rises and as long as I take care myself the saying is true that “Age is just number.” I want to live to at least 100 with all my wits about me and hopefully still able to move on my own without a walker, cane, or wheel chair.
There is so much that we can do to better the future for ourselves, our children, and our family legacy. I want to make a difference in others lives and give them support and comfort that the troubles that are before them will pass if they only believe in Jesus Christ and God our father. We all suffer in different ways in our youth and adulthood to give comfort to others and share Gods word. So all the heartaches, pain, betrayal, shame, and lies I have faced will give me compassion for others and the ability to show them how I got through the similar issues they may be facing.
Our sins and those who sin against us do not go unpunished and they do not go unused for Gods greater good. My next move is given to me in each step I take throughout the day. At the end of each day I can look back to the point where I started and see how far I have come and be satisfied knowing that I walked with Jesus and our father in every move.
