Staring can get us in trouble or embarrass us. Sometimes we stare through things when others may think we are staring at them or something else. Sometimes we stare at people we find attractive or we do not like.
When you see something you like or want you can stare or you can take the stairs and go after it. I know I have let my fear get in the way many times in my life and sometimes it was too late to get back what I lost. Everyday the news reflects the loss of life and it saddens me. We fight so hard to be right instead of being together and loving one another.
In each new day, I ask for strength, grace, and love, and to be able to hear, see, and feel the Lord as I walk the path he has chosen for me. We strive to be Christ-like but we must remember we will never master it until we get to heaven. God has great plans for me and my family. It’s important to remember patience as I wait for my husband and in the process I learn more compassion to share in my ministry for other single parents longing to be closer to the one with the one.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
11 For 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.
