“You have made known to me the path of life,you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
In the bible we see the story of many people who were called by faith. Abraham had a call to ministry in his life, Lot had a “no-questions-to-be-asked” call of exit by blind faith, and the story goes on about others who have left their homes and loved ones on this blind faith.
Nowadays, we get to decide whether we want to answer the calls we get in life (phone calls to be precise), all thanks to smartphones. But sometimes I wish I knew what the other person was going to say so I could be prepared for the worst, ironically I do wish I had a blueprint of my life just to know at least whether I should carry winter or summer clothes along for the journey. Then again I wouldn’t actually be surprised by the immense joy I get when He puts into me through various situations. His beautifully intricate yet foolproof plans never cease to surprise me.
God paves our path through the people we meet, the places we very randomly visit, the days we wake up to thinking it’s just a normal day but end up witnessing the birth of a loved one, first job, anniversaries, losing a loved one… At times the smallest of small things touch our hearts and end up being significant milestones. Even a random ‘Hi’ might end up being a lifeline sent by God.
We do not know what today holds, we really have no clue of what tomorrow is going to surprise us with, but all we that we know is He knows us better than we know ourselves. He has paved a path for us even before we knew that we were meant to move by a dot on the map.
Lord, as I begin my day today help me to be a helping hand, a lifeline to the people you have sent to me, I submit them into your mighty hands, Lord help me to share the peace and love that you have given me. Amen.
