Sometimes I wonder what God is doing. I look at my situation and have to consider that maybe He’s guiding me into a new direction. So last summer, I didn’t get to spend much time in my island paradise because my husband was building some homes. This year, we’ve been a couple of times only to be run off by the red tide, which makes us both sick. The last time I was out on my paddle board was in January and I was anxious to get out on the water again. I trudged through the mud and dead fish in the mangrove to launch, hoping the water would clear up as I paddled out a little ways. Much to my disappointment, it was just more of the same, a murky cesspool of death. Is God using this to move me? Maybe. I must consider that God has a hand in this and a change may need to be made. You must be observant in the circumstances of your life; Satan may not be the one pulling the strings. God can and will use situations to move you in the direction He’s called you to for His purpose.
It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes. The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces. Psalms 119:71-71
