The God on the Mountain is still God in the valley part 2

I meant to continue my precious post sooner , but time got away from me. It’s been so heavy on my heart to write as the way that God has continued to answer my questions is amazing.

I shared the song from my childhood that I went back to and how the words spoke to me. Also, on my long drive I heard a current song that I had never really paid attention to the words. Some of the words say, no matter how I’m feeling, I still have a reason to praise. Isn’t that so true! No matter if things don’t work out from today on, I’m so blessed by the things that God’s done and the things he’s given me that I will always have a reason to praise. Similar song messages that spoke to me as a child are still speaking to me today. God is the same yesterday, today and forever

As I continued on my trip just listening to regular FM Christian radio, God continued to speak to me and answer all the questions that I’d been asking. At that time, I was listing to Air One radio (90.5) One of the radio host, Dan, was telling a story about how he was asked to do a podcast on a certain subject. He said while he was flattered to be asked to do it, he questioned why me? He said don’t we all ask why me about our selves at times.

Well, I can 💯 answer Dan’s question of why him. It’s because I needed to hear that very comment. I always question why me, what do I know, why am I called to do things etc. That very moment I realized that being used by God isn’t about us as human beings, if so it’d be an awful story. But, it’s all about being a vessel to share about what an amazing God we have and the things He’s done in us and through us to help others along their path. Maybe someone reading this needed to hear this very thing. We shouldn’t sell ourselves short, but have more faith in the mighty God we have within us.

This scripture immediately came to my mind,

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8

I have no idea where He’ll send me or what it will bring, but that’s become my prayer recently and I am willing to do do whatever God has for me.

Dan continued on with a story about 2 people being assigned the same seat on an airplane. One of the passengers was adamant about staying in that particular seat (5A). They said ok but we had arranged for you a seat in first class (1A).

As he was sharing this story, he said, in life, why do we hold on so tightly to where we think we should be when what God has for us could be so much better?

That spoke to me so much because of the time of transition I’m in my own life. I’ve been a single mom of 4 kiddos for 12 years with my youngest going to college this fall. They were all active in sports with full social lives and that’s all I’ve ever known to do. I was their chauffeur. Their sporting events were my social life and we’d make our vacations around where they were playing at the time.

I’ve never questioned that God’s in control of my future, but shew I was really fretting over what’s to come and would rather hold on tightly to all I’ve every known. After hearing this illustration, it helped me see things in a different light. I don’t know what the future holds, it’ll all be new and different BUT GOD has something and/or someone better than I could even imagine. I just pray that I’ll remember this and stand on the truth of God’s word. Which is…

Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20

Knowing He is “the same yesterday and today and forever” reminds us that God was reliable in the past, we can trust Him today, and we can hold fast to the hope that is tomorrow.

After all,

‘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 a hope and a future. ‘” — Jeremiah 29:11.

May be all strengthen our faith and trust our mighty God to stand on the truth of His word .

Love you all. Thanks for letting me share!
