"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways", declares the Lord.
"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts."
"Does it live at the zoo?"
"Does it have four legs?"
"Does it have a long neck?"
"Is it a brachiosaurus?"
I gripped the steering wheel to subdue my laughter.
"Give me a hint."
"It starts with the letter G."
"Is it a zebra?"
I went ahead and gave her the round based on entertainment value!
Some days I feel like my life is one long round of "Guess the Outcome". I peer at the limited facts I have and try to assume where God is taking my life or how He will resolve my current issue. The answer seems as obvious to me as the giraffe was in my game with Carynne. God usually has a much more creative solution in mind - a brachiosaurus has nothing on Him!
Instead of wasting time thinking about things beyond my scope of control, I need to focus my mind and heart on praising the One Whose thoughts carry me into every tomorrow.
What do you think about that?
