I was waiting for church to start a few weeks ago, and as has often happened, the Holy Spirit communicated something to me.
My living situation has changed yet again. I lost both jobs after 13 years, and had to look outside of the area for work. I now work about 300 miles from my home, where my wife is. After 1 1/2 years of this, I lost my place where I was staying because my friend accepted a position as a pastor of a church about a 2 hour drive away, and they are moving there.
So, my youngest daughter said I could stay on her couch.
She has a two year old son (awsome little man!), and my arrival in her life has been like a large stone thrown into a small pond. Why such a big splash?
This was what He revealed to me. In all my daughter's circle of friends and family, I alone hold this testimony of Christ in my heart. My daughter does not believe in Him. Had I immediately come here from my home, it would not have been good. So I had to be introduced slowly, especially since we had no relationship since she was 6, until now.
Don't judge me for that. It's easy to say "You shoulda.." but until you understand the circumstances...
But God is good, and now we are establishing a good relationship. And what the Holy Spirit revealed to me is that each step has been ordered by the Lord, to easily insert me into my daughter's life, and break the spiritual bondage from others who are into the occult, and other things. And as such, when I put little man to bed, I hold him, and pray for him and his mother and pray God's blessing, and calling upon his life.
And this is true...so true, and we can trust it.
"Acknowledge the Lord in all your ways, and HE will direct your paths."
And so He has done in my life.
