“Like sands thru the hour glass…so are the days of our lives”…..
A very popular statement, but oh so very true….thinking about how many pieces of sand there are in hour glasses. Just think of a bucket of sand on the beach at the ocean…how many tiny grains there are. When the wind blows what does it do that sand, but spread and separate the grains from each other. Life’s wind can change at any point and time in our lives. Turn our lives toward a track in a totally different direction than we ever expected. How do we know we are doing God’s will for our lives? How do we know we are making the decisions that are God fulfilled decisions and not decisions that are selfish? In Ephesians Paul is writing to the church at Ephesus…Chapter 3:16-19 says;
16 “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love. 18 may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. ”
The grasp of how much God loves us is totally unfathomable….so by making the decisions we make his grace is sufficient to cover it all. To trust completely that we are following the will of God is to be totally at peace with the choice we have made. Our minds can not even begin to understand the knowledge of God…Prayer and prayer only can lead us in the directions we need to go, even if sometimes it is not the direction for which we would like to go…..
